Here is an easy breakfast spread or snack spread that is great over bagels or toast. I have been trying to recreate a cream cheese spread that they use to have at My Favorite Muffin. I use to stop in frequently and get a Jalapeno and Cheddar bagel heated up with this great cream cheese on the side. It was a bacon horseradish cheddar mix of some time and it was so great. To my dismay about 10 months ago they stopped carrying it! I asked why and they said it was not very popular. Incidentally about 10 months ago is when I stopped going to My favorite Muffin and started trying to recreate the spread. I am getting closer and closer but as I get closer I am adding more and more flavors to try and make it even better!

Ingredients:
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
5 slices bacon (crisped then diced into bits)
1/4 cup sharp cheddar (finely shredded)
3/4 tsp horseradish
1/4 cup green onions (chopped)
2 tbsp shallots (minced)
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 drip of liquid smoke (mesquite)

In a medium mixing bowl fold all ingredients until evenly mixed. Serve cold, at room temperature or my favorite heated up! These spread can be stored in the refrigerator until ready to be used.
