Ree Drummond has a perfect breakfast bagel idea that can be made ahead, stored in the freezer, and quickly reheated for a breakfast on the go. The pioneer woman Star Bagel Bombs are stuffed with a delicious filling and topped with “everything” seasoning.
Ree Drummond cooks an easy recipe for freezer bagel bombs
Drummond showed how to make his bagel bombs during an episode of The pioneer woman. She was preparing meals for the freezer and this easy recipe makes an ideal quick breakfast.
“I’m stocking the freezer and making dinner tonight,” she explained. “For the freezer, I’m going to make a batch of bagel bombs. My family loves them. I really love them and it’s a good thing to put in the freezer.
She continued, “Bagel bombs are such a cool thing and I see them more and more. Basically, imagine a bagel all coated in cream cheese and topped with cheese and ham.
The Food Network host added, “Except with a bagel bomb, everything is neatly stored inside the bagel.”
‘The Pioneer Woman’ star’s bagel dough is a simple recipe
Drummond made easy dough for bagel bombs. She combined all-purpose flour and salt on low speed in a blender, then drizzled with olive oil until combined and added active dry yeast and warm water. The Food Network host mixed everything together until well blended, then poured the batter into an oil-coated bowl, formed a ball and dropped it into the oil. She covered the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise for an hour.
The pioneer woman star made the bagel bomb filling by combining cream cheese, shredded sharp cheddar and diced ham in a bowl.
Then the Food Network host pinched off pieces of dough “a little bigger than a golf ball” and rolled them into balls. To assemble the bagel bombs, she rolled each ball flat then added the filling in the center. “These are fully loaded bagel bombs,” Drummond said. She folded the edges of the dough to make a seam and put them on a greased baking sheet.
“As with regular bagels, I’m going to boil them before baking,” Drummond explained. She added honey to boiling water and dropped four bagel bombs into it at a time, cooking them for a minute and flipping them halfway through.
Drummond sprinkled on easy bagel seasoning before freezing breakfast ‘bombs’
Drummond sprinkled the bagel bombs with a mix of everything bagel — a combination of toasted sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried onion flakes, garlic flakes, black pepper and sea salt.
She baked the bagel bombs in a 425 degree Fahrenheit oven for 25 minutes.
The Food Network host shared her freezing process. After the bagel bombs cooled, she froze them for 20 minutes, wrapped each in foil, and put them in a container in the freezer.
To reheat the quick breakfast, she removed the foil, wrapped the bagel bomb in a paper towel, microwaved it for 90 seconds, then let it sit for a minute before to eat.
