Recipe adapted from the Kitchen Whisperer


Place a bag of bagels in a flat wicker basket or box lined with a tea towel. Add the Everything Bagel Seasoning, avocados, and cream cheese. A note from you may say to mix some seasoning with cream cheese and spread on a toasted bagel or sprinkle on top of mashed avocado on toast.
