The first time I had a cream cheese bagel I was in a park in Boston and it was the summer of 2012. We were on the last couple of days of a 5-week holiday in the United States and I was tired and hungry.

I should tell you now that long holidays can be very tiring.

It sounds fantastic to say that you went on a 5-week dream holiday, but in reality, it can be exhausting at times.

We did a trip to Boston on our way there and on our way back. It was the airport we chose as it was cheaper, and it made a good base. In between this we had 21 nights in Orlando and visited family in Vermont too.

On one of the days, we headed to a park in Boston and over tired from too many rides at Universal Studios and Disney World, we sat in the park while our son played in the lake.

He was 10 at the time and loved Boston.

At the café at the park I had a cream cheese bagel. My first one EVER, while the boys enjoyed their American favourite sandwich of pulled pork.

From that moment on I loved Bagels and fell in love with them. Especially, loaded up with my favourite cream cheese!

But they are unpopular here in Portugal, so when I see them, I buy them. Lidl had a special Americana theme running a couple of weeks ago and before I knew it, I had toasted my bagels in the air fryer and loaded them up with cream cheese and avocado.

To make cream cheese bagels in the air fryer is so simple.

Slice a bagel in half and place them into the air fryer and warm them up like you’re making toast.

They take just 5 minutes at 180c to be warm inside and crispy on the edge.

Take them out and load them up with your favourite bagel toppings.

I made one batch with just cream cheese and dried chives, then the other set had cream cheese and sliced avocado.

Dominic and Jorge hate avocado and me and Sofia love it. So, it was one bagel for the girls and one for the boys.

That is another wonderful feature of cream cheese bagels. If you like different toppings, then it is easy to make different versions at the same time.

Why Air Fryer Bagels?

The thing about the air fryer, is that it’s the gadget of many uses. It is a perfect replacement for your grill, your deep fat fryer and best of all your microwave.

It is just perfect for toasting your bagels to perfection and once you have a warm toasted bagel in the air fryer, you will want to enjoy air fryer bagels forever and ever.

You can use your bagel in the air fryer just like you would with other bagels. Warm it up. Choose your favourite toppings and eat!

Can I recommend a cream cheese topping? They are like the best combo with the bagel that you will ever find!

Or if you want to add more to it, why not have some salmon or avocado too. Or what about some fresh herbs? Just remember, no matter what your bagel topping is, that 5 minutes at 180c, is all it takes for perfect toasted bagels in the air fryer.
