Forget Coffee Shop Bagels, DIY Instead!

I'm a sucker for bagels and cream cheese, and when the craving starts, it doesn't stop. Thing is, we all know that coffee shop bagels, as yummy as they are, can be pricey. When you're tightening your belt, it becomes more of a luxury than a necessity.

So I went the DIY route.

This should be a no-brainer, yeah?

The reason for this post is that I recently discovered Pan de Manila's Herb Cream Cheese. I usually only go there for the pan de sal and soy milk, but a couple of weekends ago, the cream cheese caught my eye, so I thought, why not?


Naturally, the bagel craving set in, so I got a bag of Village Gourmet plain bagels, which is the brand I normally get. (It's the only one in the grocery store, LOL.) Seriously, the brand has a good line of different kinds of bread.


Of course, you can use any bagel of your choice, but if you want to give this a try, do! You won't regret it.

Bread knife ready. Toaster warming up. Cream cheese out of the fridge.

For less than a hundred pesos (everything included - all two ingredients!), I got one heck of a breakfast.


I think it's the cream cheese that made the difference. My go-to cream cheese (when I do buy it) is Philadelphia, but I have to say Pan de Manila's can more than hold its own.
