Scallion Cream Cheese Bagel Spread - Two simple ingredients will make any breakfast bagel the best ever!

If you are a regular reader here at A Family Feast, then you may have noticed that we’ve been on a bit of a breakfast theme over the last few days. We’ve shared recipes for homemade Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins, Oat Buttermilk Waffles, and now today’s fantastic  Scallion Cream Cheese Bagel Spread!

Scallion Cream Cheese Bagel Spread - Two simple ingredients will make any breakfast bagel the best ever!

Years ago, when my husband Jack worked in food service management, the facility he managed baked hundreds of fresh bagels every morning, and they served several different cream cheese spreads along with the bagels.

Two of the most popular cream cheese spreads they served included a sun dried tomato and basil spread (you can see that recipe here) and this Scallion Cream Cheese Bagel Spread.

Just two simple ingredients – but this spread is fantastic! A chewy, hearty toasted bagel, slathered with creamy and sweet-tangy cream cheese that has been mixed with scallions and their fresh, onion-y crunch – its a perfect breakfast combination! We especially like this Scallion Cream Cheese Bagel Spread with herbed, oat, or multi grain bagels.

    Where I used to live, (Nantucket, and I just read your recipe for Nantucket corn pudding 😁), there was a local restaurant that made a breakfast sandwich that I fell in love with. It was a toasted bagel with cream cheese, scallions, fresh sliced tomato, and bacon. Similar to salmon and lox I guess, but I prefer the bacon. It was to die for… if you have never had it I highly recommend making one next time you make this spread! 😀

    I’ve made a spread similar to this before! I usually add lobster meat or ham in the spread! It’s ADDICTIVE!!!!! 😀

      Wow Mercedes – Your version sounds even more delicious! 🙂

        Thank you! I have put them in alfredo sauce over noodles previously, and thought they’d taste great as a dip for crackers (like Triscuits) as well, if I mixed the lobster or ham with scallions in cream cheese! It turned out to be a lovely experiment! 😀

        And the imitation lobster works just as well!
