Homemade Bagel Bites


We love Bagel Bites. We know that we preach a lot about fresh foods, and only eating the best ingredients, but there is just something about Bagel Bites that are delicious and comforting. We could honestly, eat them all day long. #nojudgement

But while we do love occasionally binging on Bagel Bites, we wanted to try and make them ourselves. And the results? They were magical. Instead of mindlessly eating, these actually filled us up and kept us deliciously satiated like a good meal should.

And sure, Bagel Bites are super easy to make: open package, place on tray, cook, enjoy. But did you know that in the time it takes for Bagel Bites to warm in the oven, you could make your own homemade and mouthwatering bites? Yeah. If you’re skeptical, give these little guys a try. We promise, it’s worth the effort.

Step 4: 

While the bites are toasting, mix your season mixture and your pizza sauce.

This step is really just to up the flavor, if your sauce is already flavorful, feel free to skip this step.

Step 5: 

When the bites are finished toasting, remove them from the oven. Very carefully, begin to assemble each bagel bite, first covering the bagel with sauce, then cheese, and finally the pepperoni.
