What do you like to eat for breakfast? Cereal? Eggs? Bacon? Bagels?
Every once in a while I really get the craving for a bagel and cream cheese.
This is a delicious choice for spreading on your toast or bagel. It is subtly sweetened by honey and flavored with vanilla bean and freshly ground nutmeg. It is so tasty. It would be great for a holiday brunch.
Vanilla Bean Spreadable Cream Cheese
one 8oz. block of cream cheese, softened (I used low-fat)
3 Tablespoons heavy cream or milk (I used cream…you know…to even out the low-fat cream cheese…)
the seeds of 1 vanilla bean
1 Tablespoon honey (you can use more or less depending on how sweet you want it–this isn’t very sweet)
dash to 1/4 tsp of freshly ground nutmeg (optional)
1. Whip all ingredients together with an electric mixer until smooth and slightly fluffy.
2. Spread on toasted bagels, or whatever else you like!
Verdict: Delicious! A good twist of plain ol’ cream cheese.
Husband’s take: He didn’t try it. He’s not a huge cream cheese fan. Crazy.
Changes I would make: Nada.
Difficulty: So easy!
