Bagel bites in air fryer.


I just can’t get enough of my air fryer! It can be used to make so many recipes but is also the only way I will cook frozen foods like air fryer pizza rolls, air fryer frozen taquitos, air fryer frozen pretzels and air fryer frozen okra.

Why are Air Fryer Bagel Bites so good?

Family favorite – These are great for even the pickiest of eaters. Perfect for a snack when friends come over, watching sporting events, or just a simple meal.

Super quick – No preparation required. These bites are ready in less than 10 minutes from start to finish.

Simple – Only need one “ingredient”. Doesn’t get much simpler than that.

Ingredients needed

  • Frozen bagel bites – Use your favorite brand like Ore Ida.

How to cook Bagel Bites in Air Fryer

  1. Choose how many bites you would like to cook and place them in the air fryer basket. Make sure to spread them apart so they aren’t on top of each other.
  2. Cook at 370 degrees for 5-6 minutes.
  3. Remove the pizza bites from the basket and serve warm.

How long to cook Bagel Bites in air fryer?

If you look at the bagel bites cooking instructions you probably won’t find air fryer time and temp. Different air fryer models may cook a little different so it’s always good to keep an eye on them the first time you are cooking them. I cook them at 380 degrees and would check them around the 5 minute mark and add time if necessary.

Recipe tips

I made these in my 5.8 quart basket style air fryer. They can also be made in the oven style, just be sure to cook on the middle rack.

If you are making a second batch, you can probably reduce cooking time by 1-2 minutes since the air fryer is already hot.

Air fryer brands can cook a little bit differently so if it’s your first time making them, be sure to check on the cooking progress around 4-5 minutes. Add time as necessary.

How to store leftovers

Store: If you end up making too many and have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container or wrap them in foil. Keep them in the refrigerator until ready to reheat.

Reheat: Place back in air fryer basket and reheat at 350 degrees for 3-4 minutes.

What to serve with Pizza Bagels in Air Fryer

These little pizzas are great all on their own but can be paired with dipping sauces or sides to make them a meal. Here are a few of our favorites:

Dipping sauce: marinara, ranch, horseradish sauce

Sides: salad, cut up vegetables, slaw, roasted vegetables, steamed broccoli

Other Bagel Bites cooking instructions

If you don’t have an air fryer you can make these using an oven or microwave. I will say that I prefer the air fryer method.

Oven – Preheat to 425 degrees F. Place them on a baking sheet and cook for 12 minutes.

Microwave – Keep them in the cooking tray that comes in the box. Microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
