– Be sure you have time to prepare this dish the night before you want to serve it.
– We recommend french toast bagels, potato, and plain, but you can also use cinnamon raisin, cinnamon sugar, or other sweet bagels for more delicious results.
– Plain cream cheese works well, but don’t be afraid to improvise with honey almond cream cheese for added sweetness, or reduced fat for the health conscious.
– If Christmas Eve gets too busy to pick up your bagels, grab them the day before (December 23) – one-day-old bagels work equally well, if not better, in this recipe.
Call ahead at our stores (865-675-6667 Farragut / 865-951-1515 Cedar Bluff) to pre-order your Bagel Bucket. It ensures speedy pick-up and that we have what you need when you need it. We will be open from 5:30 AM to 4 PM on Christmas Eve, so make sure you pick them up your bagels and cream cheese before closing time.
