Apple Cinnamon Bagel Bites

Making easy breakfast recipes is a must in my busy house of boys.  These apple cinnamon bagel bites are packed with flavor and could not be more simple to prepare.  I love to get the kids in the kitchen to help with this recipe.  They can help cut up the bagels, slice apples and even help stir the egg mixture into the bagels.  This is also a great recipe the kids can take to go when time is short in the mornings.
