- Everything Bagel seasoning (optional)
To make these Crispy Bagel Bites, start by spreading a generous layer of cream cheese over a large flour tortilla. Next, sprinkle on a little Everything Bagel seasoning over the cream cheese. This seasoning blend typically includes a combination of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic, dried onion, and salt, providing a burst of flavor and a delightful crunch.
Once you’ve seasoned the tortilla, tightly roll it up into a log shape. Then, using a sharp knife, slice the log into bite-sized pinwheels. Each pinwheel will reveal a beautiful swirl of cream cheese and the savory DELICIOUSNESS of Everything Bagel seasoning.
To achieve that amazing crispy texture, melt a small amount of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place the pinwheels in the skillet, cooking and flipping them often until they turn golden brown and crispy on both sides. The butter adds a delectable richness and helps the pinwheels become perfectly golden and crispy.

A yummy snack idea for anytime of day! These crispy tortilla pinwheels are quick and easy to make with flour tortillas, cream cheese, butter, and Everything Bagel seasoning. Simply roll, cut, and crisp them up in a skillet until golden brown.
- 1 large flour tortilla
- 2-3 tbsp cream cheese
- Everything Bagel seasoning (to taste)
- 1 tbsp butter
Use a butter knife to evenly spread the cream cheese all over your tortilla and then sprinkle with seasoning.
Tightly roll the tortilla up into a log shape and then cut into bite-size pieces. I usually get about 9 pinwheels out of one large tortilla.
Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add your pinwheels and stir them into the butter, evenly coating all sides. Cook, flipping them often, until golden brown and crispy.
Allow them to rest for about 5 minutes before enjoying. They are much better once the cream cheese has hardened a bit!
