Cooper Sharp Bacon Cream Cheese Bagel Spread

Shred Shred SHRED 8 8 SERVES: 8

Everyone knows the most fun part of a bagel is what you spread onto it. It’s really just an edible serving platter for gobs of cheesy indulgence. Which is a pretty apt description of this Cooper Sharp Bacon Cream Cheese Bagel Spread. Because come on … it’s Cooper Cheese, cream cheese and bacon. Hard to get more indulgent than that.

INGREDIENTS

8 ounces whipped cream cheese
3 bacon strips, cooked and chopped
1 cup Cooper Sharp White, Yellow or Black Pepper cheese, shredded
green onions, chopped (optional)

DIRECTIONS

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly.

If desired, chill before serving. If you just can’t wait, go ahead and dig in!

Serve with bagels—or you can use this spread for crackers, toast, crostini, those little rolled-up tortilla appetizers—or even as a topping for chicken or steak.
