For a cozy family breakfast or hosting Sunday brunch for a hungry crowd, my Bagel Board makes a flexible, creative, and delicious meal.


  • 2 plain bagels
  • 2 honey whole wheat bagels
  • 2 everything bagels
  • 1 cinnamon raisin bagel
  • 2 blueberry bagels
  • 1 poppyseed bagel
  • 12 slices baked bacon
  • ½ cup watermelon chunks
  • 8 strawberries, quartered
  • 3 mandarin oranges, peeled and separated
  • ½ cup cantaloupe chunks
  • 2 kiwis, sliced
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup pineapple chunks
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup capers, drained
  • 1/2 cup plain cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup strawberry cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup honey butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 8 ounces sliced smoked salmon


  1. Start by baking the bacon and keeping it warming in a 200°F oven while you prepare the board.
  2. Wash the strawberries, blueberries and raspberries and set aside to dry.
  3. Peel and slice the kiwi. Peel and separate the mandarin oranges. Quarter the strawberries. Cut the watermelon, cantaloupe and pineapple into chunks, if you didn’t buy it pre-cut. Slice the red onion and drain the capers.
  4. Slice the bagels in half, and layer them down the center of a 36” x 12” wood board.
  5. Fill small bowls with plain cream cheese, strawberry cream cheese, strawberry jam, honey butter, hazelnut spread, peanut butter and a little jar with honey and place them on the board.
  6. Fill bowls with prepared watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, strawberries, oranges, kiwi, blueberries, and raspberries and arrange them on the board.
  7. Add the sliced red onion and capers to small bowls and place them on the board.
  8. Arrange the warm baked bacon in the top left and right corners of the board and the sliced smoked salmon in the bottom left and right corners of the board.
  9. Serve and Enjoy!


  • Keep a toaster handy for those that would like to toast their bagels.
  • Good fresh bagels don’t have to be toasted. Some people actually prefer their bagels not toasted.
  • Pre-slicing the bagels in half lets each person enjoy ½ of a bagel at a time rather than committing to a whole bagel. We’ll enjoy one flavored ½ bagel one way and then another flavored ½ bagel a completely different way.
