Fully Loaded Everything Bagel Balls

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)Ā  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.

Course Appetizer, Side Dish, Snack
Cuisine American
Servings 8 balls


  • 1 pack crescent roll dough (with 8 triangles)
  • 1/3 cup Everything seasoning plus more if needed
  • 1 raw egg scrambled for egg wash
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped scallions or use however many you want, to taste
  • 8 oz. cream cheese *not whipped cream cheese!
  • 1 cup 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!

    You have got to get rid of the elevator music—- it is atrocious and horrible. You’re amazing and the elevator music from the 1980s just drains your energetic show.

    Otherwise, the recipe is fantastic. Simple, straightforward and delicious. Thanks Skylar!

        1. Thank you so much Patricia! Also love your name – Patricia was the name of someone so dear to me and Patricias *always* bring the best vibes! <3

      1. Easy to make and turned out delicious! I used smoked cheddar for the filling, but you could really use any cheese. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

        1. Hi Skyler! I am not a great cook but anything you make makes me want to cook! I LOVED this recipe soo easy! Can I make the balls and freeze them to cook them later? How do you recommend doing this? Love your page so much

          1. hi!! I am so happy you love them!!! yea you can make then and freeze raw, covered in seeds. I would air fry for 5-10 minutes longer. I’ve never done this but I think it would work!!

    These are SO good! So easy and quick to make; i may try it with some other dough in the future because the crescent roll dough is on the sweet side, but still amazing!!

    1. I’m so happy you loved them! Crescent roll dough was all I could find but these would be great with pizza dough as well. I tried biscuit dough and I didn’t love it (felt dry) but you could do that!! I was just at Acme and also saw french baguette dough from Pillsbury….. could be interesting too. Can you tell I love to shop for pre-made dough?! lol. Thank you for leaving a review! I appreciate you!!

    Iā€™m making these for Super Bowl Sunday, I cannot wait!! I will post a review again after I have made them but I just felt the need to let everyone know how excited I am! Also, I love your elevator video music. šŸ˜Š

    1. Wooohooo!!! I can’t wait for you to enjoy them– thanks so much for leaving this pre-taste review! You rock!!!

    Hii!! Been an avid follower for 3+ years and just made this for my roommates at college as a fun snack to cheer up their week :)) they (and I) absolutely LOVED these. Just wanted to say thank you <3

    Exceeded expectations! I was skeptical to use crescent dough but it worked surprisingly well. I also skipped the egg wash and sprayed them with Pam before popping them into the air fryer and they were absolutely perfect. Iā€™m definitely going to make these again and play around with cream cheese flavors!

    1. Yay!! I am so happy you enjoyed them! Honestly I was skeptical about crescent dough too but every other dough didn’t hit the mark quite like it! Thank you so much for leaving a review šŸ™‚

    We made these with kite hill cream cheese and Violife cheddar and they were delicious so you can definitely make these dairy-free if you have an allergy!

    1. I’m so happy you like them! This is an awesome idea and I’ll have to share with my non-dairy followers!! thank you so much, Tina!

    1. Yes! you should be fine! you can freeze them like that and egg wash/top with seasoning when they are thawed. bake right away after that
