  • Step 1

    Add 1/4 cup water to the pot. Spray the Cook & Crisp Basket with cooking spray, then place the basket in the pot.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

  • Step 3

    Add the yogurt and mix until a dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add flour 1 tablespoon at a time.

  • Step 4

    On a heavily floured work surface, roll the dough into a ball, then divide into 8 equal balls. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough balls into 1/4-inch-thick discs about 4 inches wide.

  • Step 5

    Place 1 cube of cream cheese in the center of each dough disc, then fold the edges of the dough over to completely cover the cream cheese. Using your hands, gently roll the dough back into a ball, ensuring that the dough completely seals the cream cheese inside.

  • Step 6

    In a small bowl, beat the egg with 1 teaspoon of water. Brush each ball of dough with the egg mixture, then sprinkle the tops of the balls with everything bagel seasoning. Add the dough balls to the basket, spacing them out evenly.

  • Step 7

    Close the lid and move the slider to STEAMCRISP. Select STEAM & CRISP, set temperature to 350°F, and set time to 7 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 5 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 8

    When cooking is complete, remove the basket from the pot. Allow bagel bites to cool at least 5 minutes before serving.
