Quiche Bagels

When two worlds collide, tasty things happen. Breakfast quiche meet breakfast bagel, get to know each other, get comfortable, cause this is going to be happening a lot more often 🤪

I LOVE these stuffed bagels for so many different reasons, but here’s why I think you’ll love them:

  • Fun – A funky switch up from your regular breakfast bagels.
  • Breakfast – Total comfort food for an easy weekend breaky!
  • Tasty –  So damn tasty.

Just look how pretty they are 😍

As I’m sure you’re aware, quiches come in all different shapes and sizes. The fillings also vary a lot. Here we’re going for breakfast fillings, just to go neatly with the breakfast aspect of bagels. Here’s what you’ll need:

Breakfast Quiche Fillings

  • Eggs
  • Cream
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Onion
  • Cheese

You can switch up the fillings if you wish, I just recommend obviously using eggs and cream for consistency reasons. Also, if you’re planning on putting in any extra veg (e.g peppers), I recommend frying them off before hand. This is just to get rid of some of the moisture, otherwise it’ll release in the quiche and make the consistency slightly watery.

How to make Breakfast Quiche Filling (quick summary)

  1. Add cream and egg to a large bowl.
  2. Beat until completely smooth.
  3. Add fillings and a good pinch of s&p.
  4. Stir to evenly combine.

Now here’s where things get fun 😏

I’ve seen a lot of similar recipes actually tear out the centre of the bagels to make room for the filling, BUT realistically you’re not going to do anything with the bagel you’ve torn out, so it just seems a waste. Here, what I do is squish the inside of the bagel to make room for the filling. This makes for a slightly more dense and doughy texture, but I actually prefer that. Plus there’s no waste.

If you want a more hollow bagel (with slightly more filling) you can totally do that. The filling will probably stretch to one less bagel though.

How to make Quiche Stuffed Bagels (quick summary)

  1. Take one regular bagel.
  2. Slice a very thin slither off the top.
  3. Run a knife around the centre.
  4. Squish to the edges of the bagel.
  5. Spoon in filling and bake!

Top Tip – to check your quiche is cooked through, just poke with a toothpick to see if it comes out dry or not!

  • Bread Knife (for slicing top off bagel)
  • Small Knife (for slicing centre of bagel)
  • Large Bowl (for filling)
  • Baking Tray
  • Sharp Knife & Chopping Board

Ingredients (check list):

  • 4 Bagels
  • 1.4oz / 40g Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 6 tbsp Heavy/Double Cream
  • 4 single rashers Streaky Bacon, cooked, cooled & chopped
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 2 Pork Sausages, meat removed from skin & fried
  • 1/2 small Red Onion, finely diced
  • Fresh Chives, to serve
  • Ketchup or Sriracha, to serve
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste


  • In a large bowl whisk together 2 eggs and 6 tbsp cream. Add your sausage, bacon, cheese, onion and seasoning to taste. Stir to combine, then place to one side.
  • Slice a tiny slither off the top of your bagels, then run a knife around the centre, making sure you don't go all the way through (see video for guidance). Carefully but firmly use your thumbs to push the centre of the bagel to the outside, making way for your filling.
  • Carefully spoon the filling into the bagels and place on a baking tray. Pop in the oven at 190c/374f for 15mins or until the bagel is crispy and the filling is cooked. A good way to check is to poke the quiche with a tooth pick to see if it comes out dry or not.
  • Serve with a good sprinkling of fresh chives and your favourite dip!

Quick 1 min demo!


a) Tearing out the centre - A lot of similar recipes actually tear out the centre, instead of squishing it to the sides. Whilst this makes more room for the filling, it is an obvious waste of bagel. Squishing to the sides does make a more dense and doughy texture, which I actually really like. If you'd prefer a thin bagel, the above filling will probably only fill 3 instead of 4 bagels (depending on how much you tear out).
b) Different Fillings - Feel free to switch up the fillings! However I definitely recommend keeping the eggs/cream/cheese for consistency. Also If you're subbing a considerable amount more veg, I'd fry off some to get rid of some of the moisture, otherwise the quiche will be slightly watery.
c) Chives - Try not to think of these as just garnish, they actually add a nice bit of flavour and a pop of colour. Definitely recommend using them!
d ) Make Ahead - I don't recommend making these ahead of time as the cream will soak into the bagel. I have made a double batch of these before and stored the leftovers in the fridge (then reheated when needed). The egg just tastes ever so slightly more spongey and the bagel slightly more chewy. Not a deal breaker, so if you do have leftover do cover and keep in the fridge. Pop in the oven at a lower temp (180c/356f) until heated through.
