I love cream cheese, whether it's slathered all over a fresh everything bagel or just a quick smear on a crispy piece of toast - I'm all over it! A couple of my favorite bagel shops in the area have their own recipe for one of my favorite flavors - bacon scallion. Although these bagel shops execute their cream cheeses well I just feel there is never enough of the goodies in there for me, so I decided to whip up my own.
It's ridiculous how simple this recipe is. All you need is three ingredients!
- 1 Package of Cream cheese
- 3 pieces of bacon
- 2 scallions - chopped
I love bacon. It has it's own special slot in my personal food pyramid, so I obviously added an extra piece in there for extra bacon-y goodness.
Make sure you cook your bacon until it's extra crispy, that way it holds up well and maintains a crisp texture while it's mixed throughout the cream cheese.
Be sure everything is well incorporated and then smear it on whatever delicious carb is closest to you.
Take a bite (or two) and enjoy!
