This meal is a tasty treat, great for young kids who like the unusual shape and taste of the bagels. I was surprised that the lemon added so much to the taste - so don't skip that. I think the recipe would probably benefit from a bit more mayonaisse, so I may try that next time. The main thing I would do differently is prepare the filling before toasting the bagels. Trying to do both at the same time is stressful! Just as a small point: I couldn't find any tuna in spring water (so I bought tuna in brine), and all the cans I found were 160g and not 200g.

Orf! You aren't kidding! I was sceptical, never really eaten spring onions and I'm not a massive bagel fan. I made this tonight, it was beautiful. I will 110% make this again. So easy but so tasty!

Yum yum yum!! I served this up with home made chips for a really satisfying Friday tea (with less guilt than a takeaway). Absolutely delicious will def make again
