Bagel For Breakfast: What Should You Put on Top?

Who doesn't love a soft and chewy bagel on the weekend? I don't care that they're full of carbs, since our bodies need them for energy. Plus I try to go for whole grain bagels anyway, so they're healthier than ones made with white flour. I also try to choose healthy spreads like low fat cream cheese and peanut butter, but sometimes I can't help but go for sugary jams and butter. Let's see how these bagel toppings compare.

3/4, also missed the maple walnut raisin question. well, i am a savory type of bagel person, but i've really cut back lately. used to get them almost once a week, now they are a definite occasional treat, and always a veggie cream cheese with either an asiago or everything bagel. YUMMERS!

I agree with a couple posters here. NOTHING beats a whole wheat bagel with peanut butter. I like to use the smuckers natural, so much better than the sugary likes of say JIF. Yum.

I love bagels but I hardly ever have them. Nothing beats Philly cream cheese or just regular butter.

I save my bagels for lunch on the weekends. 1 tbsp herbed spreadable goat cheese, tomato and avocado slices on a toasted bagel. Heaven!

I thought maple walnut cream cheese would have more calories than regular, but maybe it has fewer calories because it's whipped. I don't actually like bagels much, but when I do eat them I like the raisin ones with a bit of butter and cinnamon sugar. I also sometimes like a good whole grain bagel with a schmear of garden veggie cream cheese...yum!!!

The perfect bagel--with lox and whipped cream cheese. Too bad it's so unhealthy...if I have it, its a treat :)

I missed all of these, but I would never put those things on my bagel anyway (except maybe the lox). I stick to light cream cheese, plain flavor.

Bagels are a triumph of mankind. I love the Olde Earth Health Crunch ones - and they have that whole grain label you mentioned the other day. And they're so good with some organic peanut butter on top.

I'm a big bagel fan and I almost always top mine off with whipped cream cheese. I also love veggie and honey nut cream cheese. I sometimes go for butter too, though...but never jelly. I hate it.

I love bagels. I use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter zero calorie spray butter. Soooo good!

When I do have bagels at home, I usually have whole wheat, and top them with almond butter. That's gotta be better than most of the choices given. But I LOVE bagels and cream cheese, too - just don't eat them often.
