Tips to Reheat

Chances are, if a recipe calls for making it in the air fryer, it will reheat best in the air fryer. Preheat the air fryer, lay leftover bagel bites in a single layer, and reheat.

Be sure to leave space between the pieces so the air can circulate around them making them crispy again.
