Instructions
 

Everything Bagel Breakfast Salad

  • To start, heat the canola oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the cubed bagel, and toss to coat with the oil. Cook, stirring frequently, until the croutons are crisp and golden brown. Add another Tablespoon or two of oil if necessary. Remove from heat, and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Chop the bacon, if desired, or leave as whole strips.
  • In a large bowl, combine the spinach, bacon, eggs, croutons, and fresh or pickled veggies. Toss with 3 Tablespoons of the dressing. Add the avocado and toss for a few more seconds. Add more dressing and everything bagel seasoning, to taste. Enjoy!

Cream Cheese Dressing

  • In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the milk, and mix until no longer clumpy.
  • Add the red wine vinegar, Dijon, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, everything bagel seasoning, salt, and pepper. Mix until smooth, adding more milk to thin if necessary. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Notes

Add the avocado last - Add the avocado last and toss for just a few seconds to prevent it from getting mushy.
Use day old bagels - If you don't have day old, you can always just cut the bread into cubes and let them sit on the counter for a few hours.
