Hubby has started making bagels from scratch. They were a success from the first batch: perfect glaze on the crust and chewy texture inside.
Cream cheese goes splendidly with bagels, and he had the idea to enhance the cream cheese with veggie and salmon.
We diced carrot and celery, then mixed them into half the cream cheese for the veg version.
For the other half of the cream cheese, we mixed in canned salmon.
Add salt to taste for both versions, and slather generously.
