Bagel Quiche

Here’s something you probably don’t know about me > I worked at a Jewish Elementary School for many years- as a teacher’s aide, as their after-school daycare program director and finally as a substitute teacher.  I ate a lot of challah and a lot of bagels during my years at the school.

We ordered lunch regularly from a local bagel deli, and I often got some awesome bagel creations.  My favorite was a bagel smeared with plenty of full-fat cream cheese and then melted cheddar cheese on top.  Crazy calories, right??

Yeah, that was back in the days where I didn’t have to worry about calories as much!!  There were some great egg-bagel items on the menu too.  But for some reason, I’ve always had this Bagel Quiche idea in my head.  Why not  hollow out a bagel and make a quiche inside of it??  So that’s what I did.

Ingredients for a Bagel Quiche

On with the featured recipe! 

Here’s how you make a Bagel Quiche:

You’ll need these ingredients- a bagel, 2 or 3 eggs (depending on the size of your bagel) and desired quiche fillings.  I used cheese, mushroom, red bell pepper and broccoli.

Making a Bagel Quiche

First:  Hollow out your bagel.  That may seem strange, but people order their bagels “skinny” all the time at bagel shops around the world.  You get the benefit of eating a fabulous bagel without all of the extra bread.

Whisk your eggs and pour them into your hollowed out bagel.

Sprinkle your desired fillings (all optional) inside the egg.  Add another whisked egg on top if your bagel isn’t quite full enough.

Bake until the egg is set, and you’ve got yourself a bagel quiche!  I’m glad I finally acted on the “Quiche inside a Bagel” idea in my head.  It’s now one of my new, favorite breakfasts… especially on a day where I want something substantial, but healthy before I hit the slopes.  Enjoy!

  • 1 whole bagel
  • 2 to 3 large eggs
  • cheese, cooked sausage, chopped vegetables (these are optional add-ins)


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a piece of foil with nonstick spray.
  • Slice the very bottom of the bagel off nice and evenly. Set aside to eat, turn into breadcrumbs or discard.
  • Carefully hollow out the bread inside of the cut bagel using your fingers to pull the bread away from the crust of the bagel (discard or turn into breadcrumbs). Set the bagel, cut-side-up on the foil.
  • Whisk 2 eggs and pour them into the hollowed out bagel. Place desired filling choices into the egg. If the egg and filling does not fill the bagel completely, you can add another whisked egg on top.
  • Wrap the bagel up the sides with the foil, but keep the top open to the heat of the oven. Bake 20 to 30 minutes, or until the egg is completely set. Timing will depend on how many eggs used and how large the bagel is. Serve immediately (pick it up and eat it with your hands!)



  • The nutritional information is for the bagel and eggs only.  Additional fillings should be counted separately.

    Such a great idea I wish I had thought of that before. I do the same thing with flour tortilla and then freeze them for a quick meal on the go.
