Christmas Morning Cheer with Einstein Bros. Bagels

We will be closed Christmas Day, but if you can’t get enough Einstein Bros. Bagels, pick up a Bagel Bucket on Christmas Eve and make a delicious Bagel & Cream Cheese Breakfast Casserole for Christmas morning. Read below for instructions and tips on making this wonderful breakfast for the whole family!


breakfast casserole


– 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.


We’re Going Simple This Year…

Have you ever wondered what goes into an Einstein Bros. bagel, besides your choice of delicious cream cheese? Well, we’re about to pull back the curtain and reveal exactly what makes our bagels taste so good. You ready? You sure? Here it is:

Water. Flour. Yeast. Brown Sugar. Salt.

But what about artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners? Nope. Hydrogenated or trans fats? Nadda. Preservatives? MSG? High fructose corn syrup? None of the above. It’s a truly simple recipe, but the coolest thing about it is that we’ve always used these simple ingredients. We even removed the dough conditioner, because the bagels taste just as great without it. We should know – we’ve been using this new, simple recipe for months without anyone noticing! This is all part of our journey this year to serve only the best food to our guests, made with simple, wholesome ingredients. We’re starting with our bagels, but be on the lookout for our entire menu to get simplified, like shmears with no artificial flavors or colors later this year!

To celebrate our simply delicious bagels, join us on National Bagel Day, Thursday, February 9, for a FREE Bagel & Shmear! To get this deal, visit to download your free coupon!


Thanks for a Wonderful 2016!

freshHappy 2017 to all our customers and fans. We really want to thank you for making 2016 an amazing year for both our Knoxville locations.  So much happened this year!

We launched our new loyalty program so you could earn while you eat, kept the savings going with $6 Mondays and half-priced drinks at Happy Hour, and brought back your Pumpkin favorites. You celebrated National Bagel Day, National Coffee Day, and our Six Year Anniversary with us. We introduced the Twist n’ Dip Bagel and our new Fresh-Cracked Eggs. You gave generously by joining us for a simple meal at Empty Bowls, and donating to one of our own affected by the Gatlinburg fires.

It truly was a wonderful year, and behind all these special deals and fun parties was the wonderful sense of community that inspired us to open up Einstein Bros. Bagels Knoxville in the first place – a place for friends and family to gather and share. So let’s keep that going as we head into this new year, building on a foundation of fresh bagels, simple ingredients, and warm smiles.
