We’ve got some exciting news to share! Franz Bakery has released three new bagel shop bagels and one features Tillamook Cheese! Keep an eye out, these bagels are on their way to a bread aisle near you!

– Tillamook Double Cheese Bagel –There are two slices of Tillamook Cheddar baked on top of these bagels – seriously, does it get any better than that!?!
Pizza Bagel – Baked with pizza sauce, mozzarella and parmesan, this bagel combines two classic comfort foods in one!
French Toast Bagel – Just like it sounds, cinnamony, sweet, and delicious!


To celebrate the launch of these three new bagels, our friend Brandi Buckman from the Franz team created two delicious Tillamook Butter spreads. Give them a try, or slap on some of your favorite cream cheese and enjoy!

Tillamook Maple Butter


½ cup Tillamook Unsalted Butter, softened
¼ cup pure maple syrup

Combine butter and syrup in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed for 1-2 minutes, until butter is light and fluffy. Spread on a toasted Franz French Toast Bagel for maximum pleasure!

Tillamook Basil Butter


1 cup Tillamook Unsalted Butter, softened
20 basil leaves
2 large or 3 small cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper

Combine basil leaves, garlic, salt, and pepper in a blender (or food processor, or Magic Bullet). Pulse until finely chopped. Combine herbal mixture and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed for 1-2 minutes, until butter is light and fluffy. Enjoy on Franz Pizza or Double Cheese Bagels!

For shame! These so-called bagels are a far cry from being actual bagels. They're more like Wonder Bread in a bagel shape. I ate one and the rest of the package will go to the birds outside. If you want to make bagels, make REAL bagels or just stick to what you know.

Hi Tomas,

Thanks for reaching out. I'm sorry to hear you disliked these bagels. Just to clarify, we do not make these bagels. Franz Bakery makes them, and they simply use our cheese. If you would like to share your feedback with them, I'm sure they would love to hear it! You can contact them here:
