Creamy Cucumber Bagel Sandwiches

Cucumbers, cream cheese, green onion, and Worcestershire sauce make a tangy, tasty filling - don't skip the everything bagels!



Cucumbers are probably my favorite summer veggie. Ice cold, sliced, and dipped in some salad dressing - man that's a great snack on a hot day! I remember growing up at our house in Philadelphia, my parents' had a pretty awesome vegetable garden. I believe they had tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes (my dad's favorite), and bell peppers growing back there - I wish I had inherited their love for gardening! Though I really need to, at least with some pots on our back deck. Anyone have a successful veggie garden in pots? Inquiring minds would love to know. :)

These bagel sandwiches are perfect for summer picnics, BBQs, and parties. Actually, I think they would be great at bridal and baby showers. You probably could substitute the everything bagels for party rye or crescent rolls, but I honestly wouldn't. I think it was the perfect flavor pairing!


Creamy Cucumber Bagel Sandwiches
from The Country Cook

1/2 cucumber, peeled and chopped small
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3 green onions, chopped
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
6 mini everything bagels


In a medium bowl, combine cucumber, cream cheese, green onions, and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and refrigerate an hour or more (if preparing this for a party, I would refrigerate overnight to make the flavors really come together). Serve spread on everything bagels, refrigerate leftovers.




Planning a summer party? Here are some Mostly Homemade Mom recipes that would work great:

  2. First of all, everything bagels are the bomb! I LOVE those! Second of all, cucumbers are so yummy! They get sort of ignored though, you don't see them as the main ingredient very often. ;) This sounds like an awesome pairing that I can't wait to try! I have family coming into town and we're planning a picnic, I think I might make these to bring! Thanks for sharing!
