Bagel Bar Setup
Roll out brown butcher paper (app 4-5 ft in length) on either a dining room table or kitchen counter.
Display the bagels on either bagel stands, in a basket, on a tiered cupcake stand or on a cutting board.
Use a sharpie to write the types of bagels on the butcher paper.
Place the cooked bacon, smoked salmon and roast beef on a cutting board, place tongs on the side for serving the meat.
Write on the butcher paper with a sharpie what the types of meats are in front of each corresponding meat.
Slice the veggies and place them on a cutting board, place the capers in a ramekin on the cutting board with the veggies. Place a pair of tongs next to the veggies for serving.
Add the fruits to ramekins and place on the bar with spoons for serving.
Transfer the various cream cheeses to ramekins, then place them on the bagel bar with the cheese knives or butter knives.
Use a sharpie to write what the various types of cream cheese are, next to the ramekins.
Place a toaster on the bar, along with the slow cooker of scrambled eggs.
Add the “bagel bar” sign and plates to the table.
Optional: add carafes of juice and glasses for serving.
Always use fresh bagels! Purchase bagels the day before or morning that you plan to set up the bagel bar.
Pre-slice the bagels. If the bagels you purchased are not already sliced, slice them before placing them on the bar so that they’re ready to go for your guests!
Prepare ahead of time. If your time is limited the morning of your bagel bar set up, pre-slice the veggies the night before, place them on the cutting board and cover them with plastic wrap. You’ll also want to cook the bacon the night before.
