Fully Loaded Everything Bagel Balls
8 bagel bites
Sometimes all we need is to watch Netflix (or the game or whatever) with a plate of scallion and cheddar cream cheese stuffed bagel balls. Aaannd this is the recipe for those balls. I’m really supposed to write longer blog posts for SEO purposes (ugh, Google) but I’m keeping it super short today because these balls speak for themselves! The most important points here are that 1) they are f*cking delicious and 2) these take 20 minutes to make! (total time!!!) You can use your oven and bake them on a sheet pan or you can use an air fryer to cut a few minutes off the cook time. Regardless, you will love these.
Here’s a video to make your life as easy as possible!
|1pack crescent roll dough (with 8 triangles)
|1/3cup Everything seasoning (plus more if needed)
|1 raw egg (whisked for egg wash)
|1/2cup shredded cheddar cheese
|Cream Cheese Filling
|1/2cup finely chopped scallions (or to taste)
|8oz. cream cheese not whipped cream cheese
|1cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese filling ingredients until fully incorporated.
Line a sheet pan or cutting board with parchment paper. With washed hands (duh but had to say it) roll the cream cheese filling into 8 equal sized balls and place onto the parchment paper. Set aside.
Pour the everything seasoning onto a large plate or shallow bowl and set aside.
Lay one of the crescent roll dough triangles flat on a clean work surface. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top, stopping before you get to the skinny end of the triangle. Lightly press the cheese into the dough, then take the long skinny end of the triangle and fold it up towards the straight edge of the triangle. Once the far point of the skinny triangle is touching the straight edge, press the folded dough into the layer of cheese and press down to stick to the cheese and underlying layer of dough. You now should have a square-like shape of dough with cheese in the center. Place a cream cheese filling ball into the center and then wrap the edges of the dough around the cream cheese filling, fully incasing it. Cinch the edges of the dough to make sure there are no openings or holes. Then, roll the dough ball into the everything seasoning until fully coated. Place on a sheet pan. Repeat with all of the balls.
Dip the bottom side of each ball into egg wash. Using a pastry brush, coat all sides and the top of the balls in egg wash.
Bake according to package instructions or air fry for 9-10 minutes at 375 degrees, or until golden brown! Enjoy!
