Everything Bagel Cheesecake: Savory cheesecake made with cream cheese and white cheddar all on top a homemade bagel bottom dotted with everything bagel drops.
So first to the bagel purist (because you are out there) I am aware this is not truly a bagel.
The crust didn’t get boiled.
Thought about boiling the dough balls but really it turned out great without doing that.
I’ve been thinking about this idea for awhile.
I am a big fan of savory cheesecakes.
One of my first recipes on here was my Blue Cheese Cheesecake with Onion-Pear Jam.
People thought it was weird.
A savory cheesecake?
The brave souls that tried it loved it.
Many, many emails over the years telling me they have it every year at Christmas…we do too.
But as much as I love that cheesecake I was wanting to create another party cheesecake.
This one is extra awesome because of the bagel bottom makes it portable.
You can walk around eating it while mingling.
I buy my Everything Bagel Seasoning at Trader Joe’s but if you can’t find it you can make it.
If you are an Everything Bagel fan this cheesecake is for you.
Try it at your next party.
Just make sure to bring some breath mints since it is onion and garlic. 🙂
