“I have a very good friend who brings me wonderful NY Bagels a few times a year. I throw them in my freezer, and I used to microwave them to bring them back to life. I tried a little something different for this past year and thought I should share it with all of you! Please note that all recipes require a minimum of 2 ingredients to post, so I included a mini bagel to meet the requirements. :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Put bagels into cold oven (I've used a toaster oven for this, but a regular oven is recommended.).
  2. 2. Turn the oven on to 350 degrees. If you have large thick bagels, set your timer for around 12 minutes. If you have small bagels, try 8-10 minutes.
  3. 3. Your bagels should come out bakery fresh and beautiful. Slice your bagels in half. If they're still a bit frozen in the middle or you just like your bagels toasted, you can finish them off in the toaster oven .
  4. 4. Note that oven styles and temperatures vary, so you may have to play around with the times, but do start with a cold oven every time.
