Whether you’re team everything bagel, blueberry bagel, plain bagel, lots of schmear, just butter, salmon and capers, one thing is certain: people love bagels. And honestly, what’s not to love. Take your bagel game to the next level by making them from scratch. Your taste buds, and friends and family, will thank you.
Bagels bring such yummy memories to my mind. Next to making my own, the best bagel I’ve ever put in my mouth was from a little hole in the wall deli in New York City in December of 2001. It was a surprise birthday trip for my husband and was our first ever trip to the Big Apple. Our search for breakfast on the first morning had us wanting to try everything so we purchased the most perfectly toasted bagel smeared with the most generous amount of cream cheese I had ever seen. We also purchased other items which apparently weren’t that good because to this day I can’t tell you what else we ate except for that bagel. Eating that bagel brought out the most selfish traits known to man and the next morning we purchased two bagels so I didn’t have to share. 🙂
