Cream Cheese, Lox and Bacon On A Bagel. Kraft has gotten on the bacon band wagon with its newest cream cheese Seems adding bacon to cream cheese is a tricky proposition. It took Kraft 18-months in R&D before they were ready to go-to-market. Perhaps a Bacon Bloody Mary would complement at your next brunch. Heather, from girlichef blog, has a great recipe.
