Butter on bagels?

Just curious how many here take their bagels with butter, either just with butter or butter + something else (like lox, cream cheese, etc.)

Not making judgments, just curious.

  • Butter only
  • Butter + other accoutrements
  • No Butter

What goes on the bagel depends on

  1. what’s available
  2. the bagel.

Some bagels get cream cheese (possibly with chives or garlic and certainly not with blueberries or or some ‘mixed vegetable’ abomination)

Some get butter

Some are pain

If there is butter there’s nothing else.

Depends on what’s available and what I’m in the mood for.

I will do butter by itself or if I’m adding eggs, bacon, avocado, etc.

I love me a toasted onion bagel with a ton of cold butter with a big ol’ schmear of whipped cream cheese, red onion, capers and smoked salmon…

If they are fresh baked, still warm from the bakery-oven bagels—then I go with butter only.

If the bagels are toasted, then cream cheese.

I like butter on a toasted or fresh-out-of-the-oven bagel.

With smoked fish, only cream cheese.

Do people really eat bagels with butter AND cream cheese… at the same time??? I will eat them with butter if I don’t have any cream cheese around, and sometimes with peanut butter (depending on what type of bagel it is). ALWAYS toasted.

If it’s butter on a bagel, then it’s toasted. If I have Marmite/Vegemite, that goes on too. If that goes on, either peanut butter or a scrambled egg tops it off.

Never. Hate butter. Lox, cream cheese, capers, tomato, onion all good.
