Tips

Expert Tips

Try this spread on “everything” bagels—those typically topped with poppy and sesame seed, onion and more—or your favorite flavor of bagel. Toast the bagel, if desired.

Not a fan of beer? You can leave it out and simply mix the remaining ingredients for a delicious and zesty cream cheese spread. You can also use nonalcoholic beer.

Add some leaf lettuce and turn the bagel into a roast beef sandwich for lunch.
