Spicy Cream Cheese Bagels

For 4 persons


  • 230g cream cheese, softened
  • 45g shredded white cheddar

  • 3 bagels, halved


Preheat oven to 180°C.

In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy, about 8 minutes. Drain on a paper towel–lined plate, then chop.

In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, white cheddar, half of Monterey Jack, green bell pepper, onion, Pepperuko chili powder and garlic powder.

Fold in chopped bacon and season with salt and pepper.
