This easy board is great for hosting or for lazy morning with the family, it's so versatile. The addition of Philadelphia Original Cream Cheese Spread makes this idea instantly amazing no matter what you decide to add. It's so creamy and dreamy and I'm all about spreading it on a delish bagel, any day of the week. Best of all, I feel good about serving up their cream cheese spreads anytime because they're made with real ingredients, including fresh milk and real cream. With no artificial preservatives, dyes or flavors, it makes for the perfect breakfast win.


For this sweet and savory bagel board, I decided to also add their Honey Pecan Cream Cheese Spread as well as the Spicy Jalapeno. I love serving up a variety of options so there is something for everyone.

I think, you're a genius! Bagel board is a cool idea for any party, picnic or just meeting with friends at home! Somebody wants to eat some hearty meal, somebody wants a cup of tea or coffee and a sweet bagel))) I may propose some variants for stuffing, there are dryed spicy tomatoes, bacon or prosciutto, other kinds of cheese :) Everything is limited just with our imagination! Thank you for the idea and for your blog! It's always so creative and the photos are super appetizing ♥
