Bacon Cream Cheese Breakfast Bagel Sandwich a simple breakfast with endless possibilities for customization!
And, for me, these fluffy creamy toasted bagels hold a bit of nostalgia and family memories as well. I mean, all the best things are childhood throwbacks full of carbs and cheese and bacon, are they not?
Breakfast bagel sandwich recipe
Perfectly toasted fluffy bagels slathered with cool cream cheese and a few pieces of bacon in between.
The contrast of cool cream cheese and crisp, salty bacon makes this easy breakfast bagel sandwich recipe irresistible.
To me, anyway. The first time I served these to my husband who, I found out that day, despises cream cheese. And really isn’t a fan of bagels, either. I mean, who knew? There really are people out there who can resist carbs and dairy with bacon. And I married one of them.
