Product Snapshot: NYC’s mini stuffed bagels are now stuffed with soft scrambled egg and cheese! Featured Shark Tank entrepreneurs Nick & Elyse Oleksak, continue to revolutionize frozen breakfast with the newest innovation from Bantam Bagels: Bantam Egg Bites! The husband and wife duo first gained wide spread attention with the thoughtful invention of their bite-sized cream cheese filled bagels – Bantam Bagels. Now stuffing their authentic NYC bagels with creative, unique and flavorful egg & cheese combinations, Bantam Egg Bites recreate the frozen breakfast eggsperience for bagel lovers and portable breakfast eaters nationwide! 

In keeping up with the demands of portability, guilt-free, and fun, Nick and Elyse are excited to share with the world “Bantam Egg Bites,” authentic bagels stuffed with gourmet soft scrambled egg and cheese combinations. When it comes to making a quick and nutritious breakfast, eggs are the obvious choice, but now imagine them deliciously stuffed inside another iconic food choice – the bagel. Crispy and chewy, Bantam Egg Bites are everything you want from a bagel with Bantam’s signature unique twist: the egg scramble is stuffed on the inside. Now a solution for a protein-packed, real breakfast that you can take on the go!

Bantam founders Nick and Elyse Oleksak were inspired to create them for the same reason they created their original Bantam Bagels and their mini stuffed Bantam Pancakes. "Our goal is to take foods that give you that happy, cozy Saturday morning feeling and make them accessible for an everyday burst of guilt-free, easy enjoyment,” said Elyse Oleksak. “People are looking for protein to start their day. When it comes to protein offerings, people are forced to choose from either larger, sodium rich frozen breakfasts sandwiches, or chalky, unfulfilling bars. Our goal is to give them a delicious alternative, so they can have their bagel… and protein too,” said Nick Oleksak. Each Bantam Egg Bite is only 100 calories, and has 5 grams of protein – that’s 200 calories and 10 grams of protein for just 2, giving customers the ability to eat something delicious and exciting, all the while providing a powerful start to the day.

With their mini stuffed bagels, pancakes, and now mini stuffed egg bites, Bantam is recreating the frozen breakfast “eggsperience,” bringing authenticity, real ingredients, and a spark of fun to an otherwise stale & declining set. Like their bagel and pancakes counterpart, the new Bantam Egg Bites are palm size and bursting in flavor. They are packed with delicious real-ingredients that you can feel good about. Bantam Egg Bites are launching with the following insanely delicious flavors:

  • Original: plain bagel stuffed with soft scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper
  • Onion Gruyere: plain bagel stuffed with soft scrambled eggs, Gruyere, Swiss, caramelized onions, thyme
  • Chipotle: plain bagel stuffed with soft scrambled eggs, pepper jack cheese, chipotle  
  • Veggie: sesame bagel stuffed with soft scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, swiss cheese, peppers, white onions, chives

Surviving the toughest bagel critics – New Yorkers, The Oleksaks continue to believe if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. You can find Bantam Egg Bites starting in July at Target stores across the U.S and select retailers in the frozen food aisle later this summer.
