How to serve bagels at a party
The first thing to think about when setting up your breakfast bar is how to display bagels. I found these cute gold wire baskets at Walmart. They also had copper and silver toned. They are the perfect size for filling with different varieties of bagels. And the baskets look like those displays you see in bagel shops. Using the baskets, you can stack the bagels in rows or simply pile them all in.
Another option for serving bagels is to place them on cake pedestals or inside bowls. Pedestals always add a festive touch to any party buffet.
Toppings are kept to a minimum while still providing savory and sweet options. And accompanying items include two easy protein options and a festive coffee punch.
Make sure to provide some protein in your bagel breakfast bar, for balanced nutrition.
For this bagel breakfast I included 6 different bagel flavors. Three of them are savory and three of them are sweet. This way you sort of get a “main course” and a “dessert course.”
The New Yorker Bagels are all vegan and certified Kosher. There are healthful options like Quinoa Multigrain, Cranberry Energy and four varieties of Whole Wheat. As well as decadent flavors like French Toast, Apple Cinnamon, and Bialys. Build a box of 12 bagels from there list of 22 different flavor varieties here.
Bagel breakfast toppings
To top the bagels I set out veggie cream cheese and smoked salmon with sour cream, capers, and pickled onions. For the sweet side I added strawberry cream cheese, apple butter, and peanut butter. Each topping provides a different flavor profile.
Because balance in meals is important I always like to add some protein to breakfast. Here the smoked salmon is served alongside Canadian bacon. Canadian bacon is quicker and easier to cook than regular bacon. It’s also leaner!
