Setting up a bagel bar is the perfect fuss-free breakfast or brunch solution for easy entertaining!

Ingredients

  • bagels (store bought or homemade)
  • coffee
  • tea
  • juice
  • mimosas
  • butter
  • a variety of cream cheeses (plain, scallion, lox, etc)
  • a variety of jams
  • smoked salmon (I prefer Nova Lox)
  • cooked bacon
  • tuna salad
  • egg salad
  • scrambled eggs
  • sliced cucumbers
  • sliced tomatoes
  • capers
  • thinly sliced radishes
  • scallions
  • red onion (sliced thinly)
  • fresh dill or chives

Instructions

  • If you are making the bagels, find the recipe here. If you are buying them at a bagel store, plan to pick them up early the day you are serving them so they are fresh.
  • Head out to the store and pick up all the fixins a day or two ahead.
  • Set the bagels out on boards or platters with all the toppings and beverages and let everyone help themselves.
