Jalapeño popper bagels are a savory and quick breakfast recipe that’s loaded with flavor! Layer a bagel with seasoned cream cheese, topped with Cheddar cheese and peppers, then broil!


2 mini bagels (or 1 full sized bagel)
2 and 1/2 ounces softened cream cheese
1 tablespoon finely diced de-seeded jalapeños, plus some slices for garnishing
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Shredded sharp Cheddar cheese


1. Combine the cream cheese with the tablespoon of diced jalapeños and the garlic powder.

2. Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the bagels, then top with as much Cheddar cheese as you’d like, and a few jalapeño slices.

3. Place under the broiler until the cheese is fully melted, browned and bubbly.

Serve immediately! For a crispier version, you can toast the bagel before adding the cream cheese.


I used mini bagels, but you can use a full sized bagel if you’d like! These would be great with an everything bagel, poppy seed, or sesame seed!
