Have you seen bagel balls at a popular coffee place around the country? You can now make them at home…no yeast and no mixing of flour! Just six ingredients or less depending on what your favorite bagel toppings are!
These little bagel balls are so popular because they taste amazing and they are an easy on the go breakfast or snack, essentially it's a cream cheese filled bagel, think bagel balls stuffed with cream cheese.
Can you see the cream cheese? No need to slice your bagel or spread cheese on it because it's cream cheese stuffed bagel bites!
Can you freeze stuffed bagel bites?
You can totally freeze bagel bites after making them. I put them in a zippered plastic bag. Always label when you're freezing food, add the date and what's in the bag! (This makes your life easier later on!)
To reheat them, I defrosted them in the refrigerator overnight and heated them up in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 5 to 6 minutes.
Ingredients for making stuffed bagel bites
- Rhodes Bake N Serve Yeast Dinner Rolls (these are located in your grocer's freezer section)
- cream cheese
- baking soda
- one egg white
- your favorite bagel toppings (I used sesame seed, everything bagel seasoning and shredded asiago cheese)
I love love Rhodes frozen Yeast Dinner rolls, I have made pretzel rolls with them as well as cheddar cheese cloverleaf rolls. I have baked them up according to the directions on the back of the bag and used the rolls as slider burger rolls and buns for pulled pork sliders too!
How to make stuffed bagel bites
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and place frozen Rhodes Bake N Serve Yeast Dinner Rolls on it.
Spray a sheet of plastic wrap with the cooking spray and allow the rolls to defrost for 2 hours on the counter.
Cut up the cream cheese into four even pieces and cut each piece into 4 more pieces.
One by one, cut each roll in half using kitchen shears.
Flatten just a little bit (as pictured above).
Place a piece of cream cheese in the middle.
Wrap the dough around it and keep pinching the dough to seal it. Be sure to seal it up nicely so the cream cheese doesn’t burst out of the bagel balls while baking.
Allow the rolls to rest on the same prepared baking sheet for 45 to 60 minutes (rewrap with the sprayed plastic wrap).
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Heat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Once it’s boiling, carefully add the baking soda. Turn the heat down to medium. The water needs to be hot but it’s better if it’s not continually boiling for this next step.
Add a few rolls at a time to the pot and allow to cook for 15 to 30 seconds.
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel lined plate or baking sheet.
Add rolls to a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Brush each roll with the beaten egg white. Add toppings to each bagel bite.
I used sesame seed on a few. Everything bagel seasoning on some of them.
And shredded Asiago cheese.
After baking for 17 to 18 minutes, here's how they look!
Make sure to allow them to cool for at least 10 minutes before trying them.
These cream cheese stuffed bagel bites make me smile!
These little bagel balls stuffed with cream cheese are wonderful! They are so easy to make!

What a great idea! Question about freezing. Maybe I am doing it wrong but anytime I freeze any bread or dough in a freezer zip lock back, it gets freezer burn. I wonder if my freezer is set to too high?
