Homemade Bagels with Butternut Squash Caramelized Onion and Roasted Garlic Cream Cheese

All I can say is that my husband ate these bagels . . . a few of them . . . WITH the cream cheese! If you know my man this is quite the feat . . . the eating of the butternut squash cream cheese! When I told him I was making bagels he asked if we had cream cheese and I told the boy that I "made some" . . . at which point he said that he had to stop at the store on the way home and would buy some plain cream cheese . . . but he trooped it out . . . came home and enjoyed my creation . . . made my day! I have to say that he is ALWAYS a trooper! All I have to say is pumpkin burgers and my fam will say "yeah you owe the kid big time lady!" Thanks love for being the best sport and indulging your wife by eating things that you normally would never dream of!!! I used the recipe for bagels from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. . . so check out their site for the recipe or better yet the book is a GREAT investment! I love it!

I have got to give this a try :) I still have a couple pumpkins from this summer's garden, languishing in my garage. This would be a perfect use for pumpkin puree. Thanks for the idea.
