Exploring How To Air Fry Bagel Bites Both From Frozen & From Scratch

Do you know how to air fry bagel bites? If not this post is got you covered. Bagel bites offer the best snack for any time of the day. They can be enjoyed from both frozen or fresh. Frozen bagel bites can be found in the frozen food aisle in the grocery store, while fresh bagel bites can often be whipped up with things you have in your pantry. Today we will explore how to prepare both frozen bagel bites and making them from scratch.

How To Air Fry Frozen Bagel Bites

To get perfect bagel bites from frozen for a quick snack, simply:

  • Set your air fryer to preheat to 360°F.
  • Transfer your bagel bites to your air fryer basket or tray. Try to set them in a single layer, as if you piled them on top of each other they will steam and become soggy.
  • Allow to air fry for six minutes. Your bagel crust should be crisp and the cheese on top should be melted.
  • Serve and enjoy!

How To Air Fry Bagel Bites – Making Bagel Bites From Scratch

Bagel Bites Margherita

This is one of the most popular contemporary innovations, filled with unique flavors and a tempting aroma.

Serving: 6-8

Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Flour: 2 cups
  • Yeast: 1 tsp
  • Salt: 1 tsp
  • Olive oil: 2 tbsp
  • Passata: 1 cup
  • Basil chopped: 1 tsp
  • Garlic clove: 1 crushed
  • Mozzarella grated: 1 ½ cup
  • Grated parmesan: 1 cup
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved: ½ cup

Directions:

  1. Take a bowl and mix water, yeast, salt, and 1 tbsp oil. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Now add in flour gradually. Knead the dough, cover, and set aside in a warm area until the dough doubles in size.
  3. Take a bowl and mix passata, garlic, and basil. Set aside.
  4. Set a pot of water on high heat to come to a rolling boil.
  5. When the dough rises, punch it down to release the air then transfer to a lightly floured surface, cut the dough into your mini bagel portions then form into bagels.
  6. Cut each bagel in half then transfer them in batches to your boiling to flash boil (about 30 seconds to a minute per side).

Note: By boiling the bagel dough before air frying, you are allowing your outside crust to set before going into the air fryer. This will allow for a better crisp after egg washing. It only needs a minute or less per side as the longer you allow it to boil, the chewier and thicker the crust will become.

  1. Carefully transfer your boiled dough to your air fryer basket or tray and set your air fryer to preheat to 350 F.
  2. Layer passata sauce, cheese, and cherry tomatoes on each half. Sprinkle with basil.
  3. Air Fry for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
