serves four

1/2 cup chopped chives
1 teaspoon whole milk
8 ounces regular or reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
4 slices crispy bacon
4 bagels, sliced in half
4 thick slices tomato

In the bowl of a food processor, combine chives and milk. Pulse several times, scraping down sides with a rubber spatula. Add cream cheese in 3 batches, scraping sides as needed until well blended. Add salt and pepper. Store mixture in a plastic container. (Can be made in advance and refrigerated for 2 to 3 days.)

Crumble bacon and add to cream cheese mixture. Toast bagels, spread with cream cheese, and top with a tomato slice.
