I was thrown off by your requesting a recipe in the original post. I personally don't like to use bagels as sandwich bread. As to fillings, you can use any combination.

Here is a thread that discusses lots of different sandwiches!

I've made bagels a few of times. More work than a loaf of bread but
much less than croissants..! My biggest problem was shaping them consistently. They ultimately came out a bit random and funky looking.
Tasted great though.

Tom:

When I make them I use a non-standard method for shaping them.

I've seen the pros make them by taking a rope of dough and joining the ends to make a circle. I make a flattened ball and poke a hole on the middle with a finger then shape it to an even thickness all around. That seems to work better for me.
