Game Day bagel sandwich recipe

Avanti Mehrotra/Staff

What better picnic food to eat on Game Day than sandwiches? We’re all always on the go on Game Day, and in preparation for the Big Game this Saturday, you’ll definitely want something easy to make, eat and take with you for lunch. If you want to try something different and filling, spice up a normal sandwich by replacing the bread with a bagel. Pair your sandwich with a virgin sangria, so you’ll be full and energized to watch Cal beat Stanfurd (unfortunately not likely). 

What you’ll need:
