I grew up in a part of the USA that is
probably the area of the country where
you can get the best bagels ~ in and around
New York City. Yet, I didn't love bagels, I
felt they were a bit plain, too doughy and
hard to eat. Then I had my first
EVERYTHING bagel, my life changed...
Then my life changed again when I moved
to the American Midwest and at that time
we could only buy frozen bagels. Eventually
we got a Panera Bread and even the grocery
stores stock fresh bagels now.
Every once in a bit I treat myself to an
everything bagel. I cut mine in 3 slices
before I lightly toast them. I like the
slices to be thinner and that makes more
surface in which to spread my delicious
homemade scallion cream cheese.
Scallion Cream Cheese:
Thinly slice 2 scallions, stir into 1/3 cup
of whipped cream cheese.
