Smooth Philadelphia Cream Cheese loaded with all of your favorite bagel flavors like onion and garlicky goodness. The dip has tons of texture from seeds like sesame and poppy and creamy cheese, all scooped up with a crunchy bagel chip for the ultimate twist on everyone's favorite breakfast that you can enjoy any time of day!



 Whether you’re hosting the big game, having friends over for a last-minute movie marathon, or looking for a creative DIY brunch addition, this simple and delicious shareable recipe is perfect to throw together for casual entertaining in no time.



 Since the cream cheese is the start of the recipe, make sure to use the best quality. I always use Philadelphia Cream Cheese. It is made with fresh milk, real cream and no preservatives, so paired with all of the bagel topping flavors, you will get the best-tasting results every time!



Just mix everything together and that's all it takes to make this creamy, dreamy dip! Then transfer it to a serving dish and add a little extra seasoning on top for presentation.





Then comes the crunchy vessel for dipping- the homemade bagel chips! You can also use store-bought crackers, chips, or veggies to serve with this dip, but these bagel chips could not be  simpler  to make. Just slice, season, bake, and enjoy.







This super simple snack or party appetizer can ultimately be pulled together in no time for any casual occasion, so you can impress everybody with your culinary creativity without telling them how easy it really was. ;)



The best part about this dip is how versatile it is! You can adjust, add, or omit any of the ingredients to suit your taste buds. Get creative and serve it just about any time, for a fun twist on breakfast, an easy afternoon snack, or the perfect addition to a last-minute gathering.
