I love bagels! While I have been known to have one toasted for breakfast, I haven't let that stop me from having them for lunch (sometimes with sandwich fixings inside), a fast dinner (they're great smothered with pizza toppings and warmed under the broiler) and even as a snack.

This month, I present a couple of my favorite bagel spreads. They all start with a block of softened 1/3-less-fat cream cheese. From there, the sky's the limit! If you have a favorite spread, please let me know. I'm always looking for something wonderful to spread on my bagel!
