These toasted bagel bites are the simplest way to land a major hit at lunchtime.
In three minutes flat, you can whip up one of our four kids’ favorite school lunches of all time. Plus, the mix-and-match options are endless.
Use whole-wheat bagels, everything bagels or plain.
Add peanut butter and jam, hummus, marinara sauce (our kids love this veggie-filled version) or pesto for dunking.
(Really, any combination you can think of.)
And you’ll have a new lunchtime favorite in about 3 minutes.
How to make toasted bagel dippers
Slice a bagel into 8 pieces, making 16 portions altogether.
Arrange the pieces on a baking sheet under the broiler for 1-2 minutes. Flip. Repeat.
Tip: If you set them all facing the same direction to start, it’s easier to keep track of which ones need to be flipped.
That’s it! Now you’ve got a school lunch kids love.
