Bagel Bread Pudding to will blow your socks off.
The other day we bought a package of cheap, plain bagels that just didn’t taste very good. No matter how long we toasted them and what we topped them with. I hate to throw out food so I thought to myself, “Hey, why not make some bread pudding?”
I already had an easy recipe for regular bread pudding that I have made many times. I used that recipe as the base and instead of adding 6 slices of regular bread I added my leftover bagels instead. This is such an easy recipe, you will hope for stale bagels from on. If you love pudding, be sure to check out my rice pudding recipe as well.

Here is my Bagel Bread Pudding Recipe. It is super easy to make in a greased pie dish or non-stick silicone cake pan and calls for just a few simple ingredients. You can add or subtract ingredients depending on your taste and which type of bagels you have on hand.
Bagel Bread Pudding Ingredients:
- 3 Plain Bagels
- 2 Tbsp. melted Butter

- 1/4 cup dried Cranberries
- 1/8 cup slivered Almonds
- 4 Eggs
- 3/4 cup Sugar
- 2 cups of Milk

Cut up the leftover bagels into small chunks and add them to a greased baking dish.
In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the rest of the ingredients and mix until well blended.
Pour the mixture over the bagels.
Bake in a 350 ° F oven for about 45 minutes or until golden brown. Easy, right?

This leftover Bagel recipe always comes out deliciously sweet. If you don’t like dried fruits, you can omit the raisins and cranberries altogether. You can also add more almonds or other nuts if you like.
It’s fun to use different ingredients in this bagel bread pudding recipe.
For instant, you could use Blueberry Bagels and add dried blueberries instead of raisins. How about using up your stale Cinnamon bagels and adding a touch of honey?
