  1. Good! I must confess I have a weakness for melted cheese - on anything! I made these with fresh pumpernickle rye bagels which were a good offset for the spicy cream cheese. We felt the mozzarella flavor got lost in the cream cheese and made the the next bagel with Monterey Jack which worked well.
  2. Yeah, this is perfect with a non-fat latte! This tastes like one of those expensive creamcheese that you purchase with your bagles. This rocks!
  3. Every time I run low on this cream cheese, I always make some more. Also, from making this recipe, I have also figured out how to make my own veggie-cream cheese spread, instead of paying so much money to buy it.
  4. Mimi, these were really good and tastey. I used pickled jalapenos and grated mozzarella cheese cause it's what I had on hand. These are rich! Thanks!


Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
