If you are looking for bagel bites cooking instructions, I think you are at the right place. Because, in this article, I will instruct you on how to cook bagel bites in 3 different ways.

1. How To Cook Bagel Bites in Oven

Set the oven to 425° F for preheating.

Open the bag of frozen bagel bites and arrange them on a baking sheet. Make sure that none of the bagel bites are touching or overlapping.

Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 12-14 minutes at 425° F.

Finally, after removing the baked bagel bites from the oven, let them sit for 1 minute, and then serve.

Notes: When cooking the bagel bites, always keep the topping side upwards. Additionally, 4 bagel bites usually require 12 minutes of baking time, while 9-12 pieces require 14 minutes.

2. How To Cook Bagel Bites in Microwave

  • Crisping tray (plastic removed)


Place the frozen bagel bites on the crisping tray (shiny side up) in a single layer.

Move the tray to the microwave. Cook for about 10 seconds per bagel bite on a high. So, if you’re reheating 12 frozen bagel bites, cook them for 1 minute and 20 seconds total

Remove from the microwave, cool for a couple of minutes, and serve!

Notes: A crisping tray is essential when cooking bagel bites in the microwave as it saves the bottom from turning soggy. Also, refrain from touching/eating the bagel bites right after removing them from the microwave as they are extremely hot. Wait 1-2 minutes before digging in.

3. How To Cook Bagel Bites in Air Fryer

Preheat the air fryer to 375° F or on preheat setting on your device.

Meanwhile, coat the air-fryer basket with cooking spray. Then, place the frozen bagel bites in the basket, leaving a slight gap between each piece for even cooking.

Air fry for 5-7 mins.

Remove the air-fried bagel bites from the basket using tongs. Enjoy after a minute letting the hot bagel bites cool down slightly. 

Notes: When cooking the second batch of bagel bites, reduce the air frying time by a minute as the device is well heated.

4. How To Cook Bagel Bites in Toaster Oven

Carefully remove the baking sheet from the toaster oven using oven mitts or potholders.
