Toasted bagels topped with a dill cream cheese spread and topped with fresh cucumbers and dill. Dilly Bagels are a delicious breakfast!

I recently wrote a post for UrbanMoms and shared a recipe for Dill-icious Bagels created by Food Network Chef, Bob Blumer. Well, it looked so good that I wanted to give it a try for myself! It’s a keeper and so darn easy. It gives regular plain cream cheese a little more flavor.

How to Make Dilly Bagels

  • Step One: Peel and cut cucumber into super-thin slices. Transfer to a small bowl and sprinkle with salt. Toss continuously for 1 minute or until slices start to release water (the brine). Let sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, then serve immediately or refrigerate.
  • Step Two: In a medium bowl, use a fork to blend cream cheese, dill, zest and pepper. Reserve.
  • Step Three: To serve: Toast, and if you choose, lightly butter bagel. Top with cream cheese and cucumber slices. Garnish with dill.
