Elegant Bagel Brunch Hot

Elegant Bagel Brunch

Invite residents to an elegant bagel brunch complete with an inviting spread of bagels, cream cheese, jam, jelly, fresh fruit, tea, coffee, and juice. Sparkling beverages and small smoothie cups can also add a touch of class to your beautiful bagel brunch.

What to serve

An elegant brunch event begins with great food. Buy the best bagels and toppings you can afford and be sure to arrange everything in decorative plastic or glass containers.

***TIP*** Check out local thrift shops and yard sales for inexpensive dishes you can use for future events.

Community Partners

Depending where you’re located you may be able to partner with a local bakery or bagel company as a sponsor - or ask then to cater your event.
You can also purchase a variety of bagels and toppings yourself after joining a local warehouse store like COSCO or Sam’s Club. Precut the bagels in half lengthwise - and again in halves or quarters across the width - to allow for smaller sampling and more economical sharing by your residents.

Set out a variety of flavors and styles with the toppings to match. Consider also plugging in a toaster or two as well for residents who want their bagels crispy.

Bagel toppings and brunch items

  • Cream cheese (plain and flavored varieties)
  • Cottage cheese
  • Cut fruit
  • Greek yogurt
  • Nutella
  • Jelly/Jam
  • Butter/Margarine
  • Peanut butter
  • Honey
  • Meat options like sliced turkey or smoked salmon
  • Lettuce/Tomato/Olives

You can easily purchase ready-made spreadable cheeses from your local grocery store. However, if you want to create your own unique blends, you can also check out Pinterest and The Kitchn for DIY schmear recipes.

Keep lots of plastic knives for spreading, and sturdy plates for the bagels, on hand for residents. Keep an eye on the buffet table and toss utensils before they cross contaminate the spreads.

***TIP*** At any food-inclusive event, it’s safest to label all dishes so that residents know what’s inside. This helps residents avoid foods for diet or allergy reasons.

***BONUS*** For an even more delicious brunch – consider setting up a complete smoothie bar for your residents as well!
