Bacon Jalapeño Cheddar Cream Cheese

Bacon Jalepeno Cheddar Cream cheese

Discovered my new favorite thing today at Carolina Bagel Co & Deli in New Bern, NC, in the form of a toasted & buttered Everything Bagel covered with Bacon Jalapeño Cheddar Cream Cheese.  We usually elect to have our cream cheese on the side so we can apply it ourselves.  But you can see for yourself, this cream cheese is not for the faint of heart.  Also pictured is the Carolina Scramble with salsa. You get flavors consisting of a slight Jalapeño spice, TONS of bacon, sharp cheddar and smooth…

We have not had the lunch items yet, but we will soon. They offer a full menu, with breakfast ending at 10:30am. Today we…

Turkey Egg & Cheese Muffins

Egg Muffin

I love breakfast recipes that are quick and easy, yet hearty, and I think this recipe satisfies both of those.
