Quick Bagel Bites

I am always on the hunt for something quick to make on those busy days where you have to work late or your just way to tired to actually make something fancy. Bagel bites are something that I have eaten since I was a kid. I would always see the bagel bites commercial on tv when I got home from school so my brother and I were so excited to eat them as a snack when my mom finally caved and bought a box from the frozen section at the grocery store. Since then I have upgraded and now make my own quick homemade version of the frozen treat. It’s not as fast as opening the freezer and placing the frozen treat on a baking tray in the oven, but it’s still quick and equally as delicious. All you need are english muffins, my favorite are from Trader Joe’s, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and all of your favorite toppings.

Ingredients:

  • English muffins
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Tomato sauce (any brand will do)
  • Black olives
  • Garlic salt
  • Red chili flakes

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut each english muffin in half (one muffin makes two bagel bites).
  3. Before I put the sauce on each half of muffin, I like to sprinkle so either garlic powder or garlic salt onto each muffin for some add flavor.
  4. Spread about a spoonful of sauce onto each muffin half.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on top.
  6. Now the fun part, toppings!! You can add whatever toppings you like. I prefer olives, a little bit on onions, and sometimes I will add pieces of pepperoni or pancetta.
  7. Once you add your desired toppings place in the oven for 10 mins or until all the cheese as melted.
  8. Enjoy!

I hope that you enjoy my quick treat for those days that you just need something simple!

I have always wanted to visit the m&m and coca cola factory in Las Vegas Nevada. I have been to vegas many times with my family for as long as I can remember, but we never went to the factory. It wasn’t as glamourus as I imagined but then again I am not a little kid any more. But still it’s nice to say that after all this time I actually know what it looks like inside!
Review: Soda tasting at the Las Vegas coca cola factory. We ended up trying the around the world sample trays. I have to say that after tasting twelve versions of coke from twelve different countries, I can say that I prefer our traditional coke flavor.
