Bantam Bagels had a small shop in Greenwich Village, selling two-bite balls of bagel in different flavors, filled with a variety of cream cheese flavors.

The novelty spread the word, and the plucky Bantams are now sold at 16,000 grocers nationwide.

Along the way, the line expanded with Bantam Pancakes and Bantam Egg Bites. (The little bagel that could was recently sold for $ 34 million.)

We love them all. They’re easy ways to have a tasty bite of breakfast, whether on the run (first, 20 seconds in the microwave) or settled in with the newspaper for a leisurely brunch.

Bantams are a treat for the family as well as for guests. One of our favorite brunches is a mix of all three products.

The only challenge is narrowing down the flavor choices. Take a look:


  • Breakfast (egg bagel stuffed with cheddar cream cheese)
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • The Classic (plain bagel stuffed w/ plain whipped cream cheese)
  • Everybody’s Favorite (everything bagel stuffed with veggie cream cheese)
  • Everything
  • French Toast
  • Italian
  • Jalapeño
  • Onion
  • Pesto
  • Pretzel
  • Sesame

    The most recent variety, filled with scrambled eggs, has launched in five flavors:

  • Cheddar
  • Chipotle
  • Garden Veggie
  • Onion Gruyere
  • Original

    These are our secret indulgence, anytime we want a piece of cake. Instead, a bite of Blueberry or Chocolate Chip Bantam Pancakes does the trick.

  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Banana Praline
  • Blueberry
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Homestyle (plain pancake stuffed with buttered maple cream)

    The products are frozen. To prepare, you can:

  • Defrost and toast.
  • Microwave.
  • Oven toast.
    Our favorite technique is oven toasting, but we admit to regularly heating with a quick 20 seconds in the microwave.
