I recently told you about how I am working on bagel bite ideas for the cafe my friends are opening called Table Top Board Game Cafe (soon to be in West Cleveland, OH). Today I am sharing my second creation – Caprese Salad Bagel Bites. It may not be the most unheard of idea, but it certainly is delicious. I had to make them twice because I ate them too fast before ensuring I got a good photo.

  • I would totally order this at the cafe! Can’t go wrong with caprese!!

  • How do you make Balsamic Reduction?

    • spiffycookie:

      I did link to my recipe for balsamic glaze in the ingredient list but I’ll tell you here too! In a small pan over medium heat add 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 1 Tbsp brown sugar. Simmer until syrupy (reduced by about half). You can also buy balsamic reduction (I know Trader Joe’s sells some).

  • We love caprese anything (I think I may be addicted to balsamic glaze) and I think the flavors would be delicious on a bagel. Great vegetarian option on a menu!
