Crispy Bagel Bites Ingredients

Here is a list of everything that you will need:

Crispy Bagel Bites ingredients
  • Low-Carb Tortillas – I used low-carb Mission tortillas for a low-carb, gluten-free option. Check the freshness and flexibility of the tortillas, as they need to be pliable for rolling.
  • Cream Cheese – Use softened cream cheese for easy spreading on the tortillas.
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning – Use my Everything Bagel Seasoning recipe and make a larger batch to sprinkle it on everything from veggies, and hard boiled eggs.
  • Butter – You can try adding a pinch of salt to the melted butter for an extra layer of flavor.

How To Make These Crispy Bagel Bites

Once you see how easy it is to make these crispy bagel bites, they will become your favorite snack ever. Here is everything you have to do:

  • First things first, let’s soften that cream cheese. It’ll make spreading it a breeze.
  • Have your low-carb tortillas ready on the counter. We’re about to turn them into something amazing.
  • Grab 2 tablespoons of that soft cream cheese and spread it over each tortilla. Feel free to get every inch covered using the back of your spoon or a butter knife.
  • Now, for the fun part: sprinkle a generous amount of Everything Bagel Seasoning all over. We want every bite to sing with flavor.
  • Roll those tortillas up tight, then slice them into 1-inch pieces. We’re almost there!
  • Heat up a tablespoon of butter in your skillet over medium heat. Let’s get that pan nicely coated.
  • Place your bagel bites in, giving them some room to breathe, and cook each side until they’re golden brown and irresistibly crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Once they’re done, pop those golden beauties onto a plate. Throw on a bit more seasoning if you’re feeling extra.

Ready to dig in? These bagel bites are best enjoyed warm, maybe with a side of your favorite dip. Salsa, guacamole – anything goes!

Tips For Making The Best Crispy Bagel Pinwheels

  • Use fresh, high-quality tortillas, cream cheese, and butter for the best flavor and texture.
  • Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature before spreading. This makes it easier to spread evenly over the tortillas.
  • Roll the tortillas tightly to create a compact log. This helps keep the filling intact during cooking and improves the texture.
  • Use a sharp knife to achieve clean and even slices.
  • Preheat the pan before adding butter and placing the bagel bites. This ensures even cooking and a golden brown crust.
  • Cook the bagel bites over medium heat to achieve a crispy exterior without burning. 

Recipe Variations

  • Try different types of tortillas, such as gluten-free, spinach, or sun-dried tomato tortillas, to add unique flavors.
  • Use flavored cream cheeses like garlic and herb, jalapeño, or smoked salmon for added variety.
  • Add a layer of thinly sliced vegetables after spreading the cream cheese, such as bell peppers, cucumbers, or spinach, to incorporate freshness and crunch.
  • Customize the seasoning mix by adding your favorite herbs and spices like dried oregano, basil, or red pepper flakes for a personalized touch.
  • You can add protein sources like smoked salmon, shredded chicken, or turkey slices for added flavor.
  • Craving something sweet? Swap the cream cheese for peanut butter and add a layer of sugar-free chia jam before rolling.
