Smoked Veggie Cream Cheese

Smoked Veggie Cream Cheese

I love veggie cream cheese at the store, so I thought why not try to make my own recipe for Smoked Veggie Cream Cheese on my Traeger pellet smoker.

Well you can imagine it was just as yummy as I originally thought it would be.

You can serve it with bagel chips for dipping, or with some veggies like carrots and red pepper slices.

Also just on toasted bagels would be amazing.
