Quick & Easy Bagel Dogs


This post is sponsored by Philadelphia Cream Cheese. What a treat!

Growing up, there was a bagel shop near our house called Lox, Stock and Bagel. It was such a wonderful little place, and a special treat for my family after temple on Sundays. My absolute favorite thing was their bagel dog: A kosher hot dog wrapped in a soft bagel, with a side of warm Philadelphia Cream Cheese for dipping. It was heaven!

This weekend we had friends over for a casual get-together and I decided to recreate my favorite treat for them. It was a huge hit—and so easy! This recipe is perfect for everything from a kid’s party to sewing club with the girls. I mean, you truly can’t go wrong with any recipe using Philadelphia Cream Cheese; made with fresh milk, real cream and no preservatives, it’s oh-so-delicious.

I have been super honest in the past that I’m not a baker by any means, so when my local Sprouts started carrying organic pre-made pretzel dough I was stoked! If your market doesn’t carry refrigerated pretzel dough, pizza dough will work just fine!
