These two ingredient bagels could not be easier and you’ll be shocked by how good they taste. I made these for the first time about a year ago in my college apartment and my roommates could not get enough. I ended up making them again the very next morning because they were all gone and everyone wanted more.

The great thing about these two ingredient bagels is that they are made with healthy ingredients that you almost always have on hand so they can be made in a pinch. You can also put whatever toppings or fillings you want into these two ingredient bagels. I’ve used this recipe to make sesame bagels, poppy bagels, everything bagels, the options for toppings are endless. These bagels are also a great base for breakfast sandwiches.

I’ve made a wide variety of sandwiches with these bagels and each one was better than the last. You can do a classic Taylor ham, egg, and cheese, yes it is Taylor ham and I am passionate about that, or you could stick to the healthy route and do egg whites, cheese, and some spinach or arugula. Whatever your preference is these bagels as your base will not disappoint.

For these two ingredient bagels I used Trader Joes Everything But the Bagel Seasoning and it worked perfectly. This premade mix has just the right combination of all the ingredients.

When I saw these trending on Tiktok about a year ago I thought there was no way these two-ingredient bagels would taste anything like the real deal but I was wrong. These bagels are still chewy with a nice bite on the outside. I’ve made real traditional bagels at home before and I have to say after making these simple ones I will never go back. These two ingredient bagels are not only easier, but they are healthier than your average bagel. The process of making real bagels takes several hours and is very time-consuming. These two ingredient bagels take 30 minutes and they are just as good.
