Bagel Cheese Dip Recipe

This bagel cheese dip can be prepared ahead of time, poured into a pretty dish and stored in the refrigerator.

The bagels can be cut up to make 8 pie-shaped pieces and stored in a big baggie or self sealing bag. Having all of the preparation and clean-up done before the party is a huge time-saver!

I typically think of dipping bread in an oil dip, but this cheesy bagel dip is a great idea to add variety to the menu.

Chilled fruit dips that are always popular are Cinnamon Fruit Dip and Cheesecake Fruit Dip. This bagel dip is unique and will certainly offer variety to the snack or appetizer table at a potluck.

We love small servings of party food. Sliders are our favorite party food! We’re known for our Hawaiian Roll Turkey Sliders and BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders. But a tailgate or other finger food party isn’t complete without a great selection of food.
