Having read the ingredient list of the ready made Bagel Bites at a local store, I was prompted to make my own. I mass produces about 120, in about 30 minutes, for the cost of 60 of the name brand ones, and I know what is in them. I fine chopped pepperoni and mixed it into a Italian blend of cheese and added some Parmesan. Don't buy those chemical filled ones, make your own, freeze them put into a gallon zip lock freezer bag. You or your kids have a quick and healthy snack to hold them between meals.
These are great!! I've been making these for a couple of years now and they are a huge family favorite. To make a bit healthier, I use whole-wheat bagels and toast them briefly under the broiler before putting on toppings (eliminates the soggy issue). It's also very easy to change the toppings so everyone can get a freezer bag with their own "personalized" pizzas. I suggest that you finely chop/very small dice onions, mushrooms, green peppers, etc because the pizza toppings stay on much better in the freezer if you dice or chop everything VERY small. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!
These are wonderful. I made mine on English muffins and serve them for a meal. They are quick and easy and could be made with lots of different toppings.
These took next to no time to throw together. I used my fine grater to grate the cheese and used tasty cheese instead of mozzarella. Chopped my ham finely in my Vidalia chop wizard. Used my favourite pizza sauce which is Nick Stellino's No-Cook Pizza Sauce and English Muffins as they were on special. It surprised me that all the topping froze really well on top of the muffins. Cooked a couple up for breakfast the other morning and they took about 15 minutes in my toaster oven set on 200C.
Easy to make, my husband loved these. I am going to make this monthly. Easy snack. To save time, we microwaved them (straight out of the freezer) for one minute until they were slightly thawed. We then finished them off in the toaster oven for about about as long as it takes to toast bread (2 min?). This saved time so we didn't have to wait for the oven to heat up. Finishing it up in the toaster oven gave it that crispy texture, not soggy like you would straight out of the microwave.
I just made some of these for lunch. I didn't have room in my freezer to stick a cookie sheets worth in there to pre-freeze, but these do just as well if you make them fresh IMO> I just baked at 350 for about 10 min until the cheese was melted and with out pre-toasting the bagels. Maybe once I am out of freezer foods I will make more to stick in the freezer so there's some on hand, but it only takes maybe 10 min. to prepare and another 10 to bake so it's fine for me to make it fresh all the time as well.
These were great! Easy, quick and very tasty. I made them for my first OAMC session and was not disappointed. My husband loved them, and he doesn't even eat pizza! I did, however have to use English muffins for the bases, because I could not find mini bagels here, but it worked very well.
My kids loved these! I need to double this next time as I only used 15 mini bagels instead of 20. They didn't last long here. These were quick and easy and a great snack for my kids to get out of the freezer and into the oven. Perfect! Thanks for this great idea!
So easy and good I'm wondering how I never thought of this!
I made these for my first OAMC session and even made the bagels they were great I topped some with olives and chopped up turkey pepperoni. Yum those were my favorite I also made some topped with ground beef mix. I did not like that flavor as much next time I may just use plain ground beef instead.
