Build-Your-Own Bagel Board

Whether it’s breakfast, brunch or sometimes even lunch, bagels are an easy go-to. An ultimate yet simple bagel board has just a few items, a variety of bagels and easy-to-make flavored cream cheeses. Bagel boards are great to assemble for a day in with the family when you don’t have the time nor want to do too much cooking, or as a beautiful addition to a breakfast or brunch display!

Customizable cream cheese recipes have always been a favorite recipe hack of ours. Some might love a savory flavor as others prefer sweet, which is why cream cheeses are a must for bagel boards. Cream cheese recipes take no more than 5 minutes to make with plain cream cheese as the base, yet you can satisfy everyone’s taste palates!

The base of the bagel board is of course, bagels. We recommend using a variety of bagels in both flavors and sizes. This not only gives the board itself a lot of dimension, but those digging in a variety to choose from.
