Ingredients

1 packet of instant yeast

1½ cups lukewarm water

1 tablespoon of honey

4 cups bread flour

2 teaspoons kosher salt

Vegetable oil, to coat the bowl

For water bath

9-10 cups of water

1/3 cup baking soda

2 tablespoons of honey

1 large egg, beaten

1 tablespoon of water

2 tablespoons pretzel salt or large flake salt

For the egg wash

1 large egg, beaten

1 tablespoon of water

2 tablespoons pretzel salt or large salt flakes

Tip: Can’t find pretzel salt? Top these bagels with large flakes of salt, any bagel seasoning, or sesame seeds for an equally delicious treat.

directions

1. Combine yeast, water and honey in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. If the yeast mixture is slightly frothy, bubbly and/or fragrant, your yeast is active. Otherwise, you may need to get fresher yeast.

2. Add bread flour and salt. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes and continue to knead for 4-5 minutes on medium-low speed. If your mixer is struggling, knead it on a lightly floured surface for 6-7 minutes or until elastic.

3. Grease a large bowl with oil. Add the dough to the bowl and cover with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap. Let rise for 45-90 minutes at room temperature, or until doubled. To test if the dough has risen, prick the dough with your finger. If he returns immediately, he needs more time. If it slowly springs back into shape, with a slight indentation, it’s good to go!

4. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Place your hand over each dough, roll each piece into a ball and place on a lined baking sheet. Let stand 5 minutes.

5. While resting, prepare the bain-marie and preheat the oven to 220°C. Add water, baking soda and honey to a large saucepan. Boil gently.

6. Use your index and middle fingers to poke a hole in the center of each ball of dough, stretching it out until it measures 1-2 inches in diameter. Return to the baking sheet.

7. Add 2-3 bagels to the simmering water bath, cook 1 minute on each side.

8. Remove from bath and return to baking sheet.

9. Repeat with remaining bagels.

10. Brush each bagel with egg wash and sprinkle with salt.

11. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, flipping pan halfway through.

12. Allow to cool before serving.

Saturday is one of the busiest days for a bagel shop. And so why are Alex and Hunter Tuccio choosing this Saturday (September 17) to give practically everything in The bagel shop?

“It’s a thank you event,” says Alex Tuccio. “Thank you for the positive feedback, for the repeat customers and the honest feedback from those who wrote reviews online and spoke to us directly about things we didn’t notice that will help us in the long run.”

The doors opened at the Winter Park venue on August 15, but it wasn’t their first rodeo. The Bagel Shop has several operational locations in Massachusetts, but this time was different, where a soft opening allowed for a slow, smoother ramp-up.

“We wanted people to show up strong from day one,” says Tuccio, who says their strong presence — especially on social media with Rollins’ students — has been underestimated in hindsight.

“It’s unique for a small business and a bit special…We had a really good opening week – everything we could have hoped for…but we weren’t as prepared for the demand as we were probably should have been.”

Equipment issues didn’t help.

Most comments and reviews have been positive – new regulars have emerged – but following some valuable input, he says, they have made changes.

“Changes to workflow processes, changes to the in-store experience, and changes to our products and equipment,” says Tuccio. “Growing pains, but overall very exciting to have the demand.”

Now they want to give back the same love with one free food and drink per person, all day. This includes everything from their best-selling mochas to their bacon, egg and cheese bagel sandwiches. Bulk bagel customers will receive 20% off.

“We felt we owed it to the community of Winter Park and the students at Rollins,” says Tuccio. “They’ve been supporting us so far and we want to show them that it’s a two-way street, that we’ve improved on every level and that we’re confident in that. And by doing that, people will hear about we will try or try again, and we hope to get long-term customers from it.

Community, Tuccio said in July, is what The Bagel Shop is all about.

“It’s not just about blowing smoke. We want to connect with people and provide the best experience possible. Sometimes you have to be unorthodox for that to happen.

The Bagel Shop is located at 211 W. Fairbanks Ave. at Winter Park, 407-571-9005; thebagelshop.co.

“Don’t skip breakfast!” It’s the most important meal of the day. Has anyone ever told you that? Chances are, someone, mom, friend, or pediatrician, has probably already lectured you about the repercussions of skipping breakfast. For those lucky enough to escape such a fate, here is a recap.

A delicious breakfast is not only good for nutrition, it also helps regulate your mood. It kick-starts your metabolic system, increases fiber and calcium intake, and gives you the energy to keep going throughout the day. Today’s breakfast recipe list features two quick and easy to cook breakfasts that are just as delicious as they are appetizing.

Korean Rolled Omelet

All you need to cook this breakfast recipe are vegetables of your choice and some eggs. This juicy and fluffy egg dish is high in protein and can be served with a variety of side dishes, including toast.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • ½ onion (finely chopped)
  • ¼ green bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • ¼ red bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • Ground black or white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Method:

  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk well.
  • Add the onion, green and red pepper to the bowl along with the whipped eggs, chillies, seeded tomatoes, boiled potatoes, paneer, black olives, all finely chopped.
  • Add ground white or black pepper.
  • Place the pan over medium heat and pour in 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil.
  • Then pour some of the egg mixture into the skillet; evenly distribute the vegetables.
  • Be sure to turn the flame heat down to a minimum and cook the eggs slowly
  • Start rolling the omelet from one end.
  • You can oil the pan a little more by using another teaspoon of oil.
  • Then pour the rest of the mixture over the open end of the rolled omelet.
  • Cook it over low heat; make sure the pan is well oiled.
  • Then cook the sides of the omelette, holding it with two spatulas.
  • Cook for five minutes over low heat, until all oil bubbles disappear.
  • Let the omelet cool for a few minutes before cutting it into small square pieces.

Egg bagels

The world-famous recipe Egg in a Hole has names: bull’s-eye eggs, gaziere eggs, hole-in-one, pirate’s eye, popeye and many more. This healthy recipe offers a unique twist on the dish by replacing bread with bagels.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 garlic (crushed)
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 2 bagels
  • Salami
  • 4 eggs

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°C.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter with the garlic and rosemary.
  • Allow to heat until it becomes frothy.
  • Cut the bagels in half. Make sure the hole is about 2-3 inches wide to fit an egg.
  • Dip bagel in garlic butter.
  • Place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, soaked side down.
  • Arrange the salami in the middle of the hole in the bagel, then crack a medium-sized egg directly into the hole.
  • Don’t be scared if the whites overflow a little, it will cook and add a rustic touch to the dish.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until egg whites are set and yolk is as desired.

Egg dishes, whether it’s a quick and easy recipe like Korean omelet or a more elaborate recipe like eggs in a bagel, are an extremely healthy breakfast menu that can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. From a nutritional standpoint, eggs are a nutritious treat: they raise good cholesterol, help maintain eyesight, and provide amino acids and protein. So, with eggs in the fridge, there’s always a breakfast menu to fall back on.

Burger King tests seasoning that worked great for bagels | Arena https://bantamnyc.com/burger-king-tests-seasoning-that-worked-great-for-bagels-arena/ Thu, 08 Sep 2022 16:54:53 +0000 https://bantamnyc.com/burger-king-tests-seasoning-that-worked-great-for-bagels-arena/ The burger chain is testing a new bun in select locations in New Mexico and Alabama.

The burger chain is testing a new bun in select locations in New Mexico and Alabama.

In five years, the whole seasoning has gone from something found in New York bagel stores and deep in the aisles from Trader Joe’s to a viral hit that every big food name try to fall behind.

McDonald’s (MCD) – Get the McDonald’s Corporation report restaurants in Canada have the any bagels with butter or cream cheese as part of its breakfast line while bagel chain Einstein Bros. now serves seasoning in shakers next to his bagels.

Foothold Technology examined the affordability of rent in each state, based on analysis conducted by the National Low Income Housing Coalition. Click for more information.

Endless variations of the original seasoning also appear in the grocery department – Sam’s Club (WMT) – Get the report from Walmart Inc.seasoning company Simply Organic and grocery delivery startup FreshDirect all sell their own versions in a shaker that mirror Trader Joe’s brainchild.

Burger King wants it too

Restaurant Brands International is the latest fast-food chain to set its sights on the whole thing. (RSQ) – Get the report from Restaurant Brands International Inc.owned by Burger King.

On Thursday, the burger chain announced it was testing all-seasoned buns in select markets in Huntsville, Alabama and Albuquerque, New Mexico, starting Sept. 12.

Titled the “Everything Menu” concept, Burger King’s new items include an Everything Whopper (a grilled beef patty with tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, onions, and a brioche bun with all the seasoning) and an Everything BK Royal Crispy Chicken Sandwich (the chain’s fried chicken sandwich on the same all-dressed bun).

Burger King

The Everything Breakfast sandwich is also unavoidable given the association of bagels with breakfast. It’s simply the chain’s sausage, egg and cheese on the same brioche bun topped with all the seasoning.

The Three Sandwiches is a limited-time promotion meant to test popularity before committing (or not) to a wider rollout.

That means residents of New Mexico and Alabama who believe all seasoning is the future will have to prove it to Burger King with their shopping habits.

A Brief History of Everything But the Bagel

While people of all cultures have been eating a combination of poppy seeds, sesame seeds and garlic for centuries, the real craze started when New York bagel shops started putting it on this what they called the “everything bagel” in the 1980s.

A number of people such as restaurateur Joe Bastianich, restaurant business owner David Gussin, and Steiner Sports CEO Brandon Steiner claim to have invented the seasoning. But as the food site Tasty first reported a few years ago, the widespread use and customization of seasoning (some add dried onion while others insist on caraway) makes difficult to identify a single person.

Another major jump in the popularity of any bagel seasoning occurred when Monrovia, Calif.-based grocery store Trader Joe’s started selling seasoning shakers in 2017 it was called “Anything But the Bagel”.

The idea of ​​putting the popular bagel seasoning on other things appealed to many, and the following year the mix started going viral on social media platforms like TikTok. There are videos of popular influencers putting it on everything from eggs and pizza at watermelon.

Even Trader Joe’s itself has extended its original concept to Everything But The Bagel chips and crackers.

In the usual evolution of the mainstream trend, all seasoning has reached the stage where it is picked up by major food chains. Something similar could be seen when, last spring, the Baskin-Robbins ice cream chain, owned by Dunkin, started selling boba tea with ice cream.

While tapioca pearls placed in sweetened tea drinks have long been popular across Asia, in recent years they have gone from something sold in city Chinatowns to something of major brand appeal. in the USA.

Ed Schwartzman brings New York-style bagels to Bloomington with Gables Bagels https://bantamnyc.com/ed-schwartzman-brings-new-york-style-bagels-to-bloomington-with-gables-bagels/ Tue, 06 Sep 2022 19:21:00 +0000 https://bantamnyc.com/ed-schwartzman-brings-new-york-style-bagels-to-bloomington-with-gables-bagels/

Ed Schwartzman, the owner of BuffaLouie’s in Bloomington, has just opened his second business, Gables Bagels. The new bagel store is located at 421 E. Third St.

What started as an idea to generate extra income during the pandemic, is now her own Bloomington store, selling authentic New York bagels.

Schwartzman was born and raised in New York City, his very first job being a bagel baker at a Queens store.

“Being Jewish and originally from New York, bagels are in my blood,” Schwartzman said. “It’s part of my culture and it’s part of who I am.”

When COVID-19 broke out, a trend in the restaurant industry was what was called shadow kitchens, where people who already had a commercial kitchen used it to prepare food that was different from what they were already doing. , in order to generate more revenue.

[Related: Local restaurants adapt to COVID-19 policies during Omicron aftermath]

This concept inspired Schwartzman to find out if it would be possible to sell New York bagels here in Bloomington, and it did.

This process involved a New York company baking 95% bagels and then shipping them to Schwartzman, who baked them.

“We didn’t make it easy for people to buy our bagels,” Schwartzman said. “You had to order them the day before and you had to order at least a dozen. It was very confusing, but people really responded. Thanks to the feedback I received from the community, I was able to convince my wife – because I need her blessing for everything I do – that there is merit in opening a shop. »

Gables Bagels were sold to BuffaLouie in early January 2021. Schwartzman signed a lease for a separate store about eight months ago, where he transformed a “vanilla box” travel agency into his new style bagel shop -yorkers which opened about three weeks ago.

They now offer 10 shmears, their own chicken, egg and tuna salads, sour pickles imported from New York and even gluten-free options.

Schwartzman is particularly proud of his own smoked whitefish. Schwartzman’s friend James Douglas, owner of Boneyard Barbeque, smokes salmon and pastrami for Gables Bagels. Schwartzman says they have now quadrupled their orders on these items.

“We do what I consider to be all legitimate east coast flavors,” Schwartzman said. “We’re also doing a phenomenal business in the breakfast sandwich business. Sausage, ham or egg with bacon and cheese on a bagel. We put a shmear on top to make it slimier, messier, and better.

In addition to an authentic New York menu, Schwartzman puts the same effort into the atmosphere of his store.

Gables Bagels already has a crowd of regulars, and Schwartzman remembers everyone who walks in.

“For me, the more you make your guests feel welcome, the better the experience,” Schwartzman said. “I don’t care how good your food is, if you don’t give your guests a positive, fun and upbeat experience, they won’t come back.

Gables Bagels has a delivery option, and Schwartzman said the bagels will come out hot from the oven. They have a route on which they regularly deliver large orders to several fraternities, the surgery center and the hospital.

Sophomore Griffin Wright is in the Fiji fraternity, a frequent delivery location for Gables Bagels.

“The pine nuts have a distinct bagel texture that’s hard to find outside of New York,” Wright said. “Most of the bagels I’ve eaten in Indiana are an imitation of a bagel, but the pine nuts taste authentic and have become a regular part of Saturdays in Bloomington.”

Second-year employee Aeriana Wiegand has seen Gables Bagels from its conception at BuffaLouie to the new store on Third Street. She works for Schwartzman in both places.

“Ed is the coolest boss I’ve ever had, and I’ve worked in many places for a lot of different people in the food industry,” Wiegand said. “He is constantly upbeat and energetic and really goes above and beyond for his people. I have never worked in an environment where the owners themselves facilitated this family oriented staff.

Gables Bagels now joins Bloomington Bagel Company as a popular bagel destination in Bloomington.

Whoever said pizza bagels weren’t good… lied. Somehow Friday pizza has become a trend followed by thousands of people. From elementary school to high school, pizza bagels or pizza with French bread were the most worrying options for us kids. The soft bagel was covered in potted tomato sauce, with a thick slice of mozzarella that was a little warm and almost too cold to eat…but never hot enough for that cheesy effect. It was one of those things that was so mediocre but that I had many times.

With this recipe, I reinvented what a pizza bagel means to me. My family likes to order a tomato pie and a white pie every time we have pizza night, so I imitated both versions with a margarita and ricotta “white” pie.

The margarita version starts with a tomato sauce layered over the bagels and topped with fresh mozzarella. Whether you prefer chorizo, pepperoni, or a vegetarian version is up to you, but be sure to drizzle on that warm honey; it’s so good. For the white version, whole milk ricotta is tossed with olive oil and garlic powder and layered over the toasted bagel. Top with shredded mozzarella and dried basil and bake. Again, the hot pepper crisp is a winning condiment after grilling.

How was the pizza bagel born?

A few sources say there is some debate over who invented the pizza bagel. A California man named Bruce Treitman claims to have created it at a Western Bagel location. In Massachusetts, Katz Bagel Bakery owner Richard Katz says it was his idea. And somehow in between we find knotty bagel bites and English muffin-style “pizza bagels.” So hard to say!

What if I can’t find Spicy Chili Crunch or Hot Honey?

If you don’t feel like hunting down these condiments, no worries. Try our crispy sesame seed or peanut chili recipe. As for the hot honey, simply combine the honey with your favorite hot sauce, adjusting the proportions depending on how hot or sweet you want it. But we also have a recipe here.

What can you put on a pizza bagel?

Imagine what you would like your pizza to have on it, then bring that to life on a bagel. If you’re looking for inspiration, take a look at our Flatbread Pizza, Buffalo Chicken Pizza, Tex-Mex Pizza or Ham, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Pizza.

Wooly’s Bagels offers bagelwiches near Farrer Park

A new bagel spot is in town, and it’s located very close to the City Square mall in Farrer Park! Wooly’s Bagels is a Muslim-owned pop-up sharing the same space as the popular Korean-style sando shop, Egg Stop.

woolly bagels - showcase

Although the cafe is not halal certified at this time, all the ingredients they use are. Despite this, I was drawn to the videos I had seen on Instagram of their oozing bagel s’mores. My co-worker’s recent rant about Whiskdom’s new bagelwiches also made me want to, so I was really looking forward to taking that trip to Wooly’s.

Food at Wooly’s Bagels

woolly bagels - double chicken frizzle

There are eight bagelwiches on the menu, including a dessert bagel. Of the seven savory dishes, five of them feature scrambled eggs which add a creamy touch to sandwiches, including our unanimous favourite: Double Chicken Crisp ($13.90).

To quote my dining companion, “it’s like Double McSpicy, in a bagel, with scrambled eggs!” There’s a jalepeno, parmesan, and nacho cheese sauce here, but the lightly spiced fried chicken cutlets steal the show. I especially liked how the crunch was balanced with the silky scrambled eggs.

woolly bagels - gtfbagel

The scrambled eggs are fried by the minute, as is the hash brown that comes in the GTF Bagel ($10.50), short for Get The Freaking Bagel. There is also chicken ham and truffle mayonnaise, but we stocked up $1 for nacho cheese too. I liked this bagel for breakfast; it has all my favorite breakfast items in one convenient package.

By the time I dug this, the hash brown had become soggy and had lost its crunch, so don’t get it if you don’t eat it immediately.

Whichever bagelwich you choose, you can choose a Plain, SesameWhere Cheese bagel as a base – we tried all three, and frankly, it didn’t really matter. They’re all typically dense and chewy, and you’ll want to eat them as soon as possible to get the most out of the toasty crust.

woolen bagels - otah kau

To complete our selection of flavors, the Otah Kau ($12.60), which again sees a stack of otak fillets with a slightly spicy sauce and scrambled eggs, which tempers the stronger flavors and spiciness. Although they were generous with the otak, I wish they were juicier, which would have made every bite even more satisfying for me.

Another fish option, this time without the scrambled eggs, is Bagel and smoked salmon ($14.90)which features a homemade garlic and herb cream cheese with smoked salmon.

Wooly’s Bagels currently sources bagels, chicken cutlets, otak and smoked salmon from a supplier due to space constraints, but will eventually replace them with homemade versions! In the meantime, all schmears and sauces are homemade. One thing I particularly liked was that they had cut all of our bagels in half without me having to ask, which made eating and pulling much easier.

wooly bagels - bagel smores

The only sweet option, SMORE’S Bagels ($7.90), is pretty basic, consisting only of toasted marshmallows and Nutella spread. We had to send it back, because the first one we were served didn’t have gooey, gooey marshmallows at all. They got it the second time around, but the marshmallows were mostly still whole, and still missing that ooze factor I’d seen on other IG posts.

Taste-wise, the Nutella really packs a punch, although I would have liked even more. My fellow dessert lovers inhaled it as is, so the jury is divided on this one.

Atmosphere at Wooly’s Bagels

woolly bagels - vibe

Wooly’s Bagels is only a three minute or 200 meter walk from Farrer Park Tube Station. If you come from Little India MRT Station, it’s a 13 minute walk instead. There is a fairly limited number of seats in the air-conditioned café, but there is also a high table outside.

We were there around 1pm and had to wait about 20 minutes for our order – the kitchen is small and there are only two staff taking care of everything, so be prepared to wait!

The verdict

wool bagels - verdict

With affordable sub-$15 prices for these stuffed, stuffed bagelwiches, you should definitely put Wooly’s Bagels on your list to check out when the cravings strike. There could be a little more variation in the toppings, but I would absolutely go back for the Double Chicken Frizzle. They are developing a buttermilk fried chicken recipe for this, which I hope will still have that spicy kick!

As I write my very first sentence of this article, my Spidey Sense is already stinging me that I’m going to get hate mail from vengeful New Yorkers who for some reason think they need to find my email address. -email and send me a four- paragraph message about the superiority of circular baked goods in their area over all others. First of all, I lived in New York for five years, and you can sleep at night knowing that I ate a ton of bagels during that time. Trust me; I know how good bagels taste.

Okay, let’s move on to the Pagels.

When I worked in the Brooklyn VICE office, back in the pre-COVID era, every Friday was Bagel Friday, and what a treat it was to walk into the office, grab a bread treat (I really like all egg bagels) toast it, top it with a generous layer of schmear, and start my day sinking my teeth into the perfect synthesis of crispy-soft-creamy. Unfortunately, I started to notice over time that like clockwork, within hours of consuming a bagel, I was literally falling asleep at my desk. I can tolerate most glutinous things with no problem, but something about the particularly dense constitution of New York bagels was quite tiring. Tragically, I had to stop eating bagels unless I could fully recover for the rest of the afternoon. Eventually I learned that eating a single New York bagel is equivalent to eating a quarter to a half loafwho is downright psychotic, like this meme on how you might not eat six string cheeses in one sitting, but for some reason when fried and served with marinara sauce as “mozzarella sticks” you wouldn’t think of it more than twice. I’m not sure I want to start my day eating the equivalent of six slices of Wonderbread. I need to save those calories for my real passions in life: dirty martinis and elaborate boba drinks.

Then I moved to Los Angeles, where good bagels are rare (please don’t DM me about Courage Bagels either; I’m aware of that), and anyway, These days, I’m pretty brainwashed into the whole eat-nutritious-thing-regular (@3 am pizza…I miss you bb) whole thing, because it turns out you’re actually do feel better if you expand your personal food pyramid to include more than jalapeño margaritas and bodega sandwiches. If you don’t live within a 15 minute drive of an Erewhon, the truly iconic “heavenly” “chic grocery store where all the celebrities go”, you can buy natural foods and healthy snacks online from stores such as Prosperous market and Bubble goods. I’ve picked up some amazing stuff on Bubble, including Hella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread and Chilli Pizza Crunch from The Flavor Society, but one of my recent purchases from the site included a bagel substitute. paleo called PagesNever before have I been so curious about how an extremely non-paleo item (bagels) could be made paleo (gluten-free, grain-free, and caveman-friendly hot). Here is my honest opinion.

a very fragrant Pagel

The pages are quite popular; they are one of the best selling products on Bubble goodsand picked up a little speed on Amazon as well. A bit of Pagel history: For those who forget the “rules” of paleo, the term refers to a diet free of grains, sugar, most dairy, oils, additives, preservatives and heavy processing, which focuses on meat, fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, which are thought to be the diet of our Paleolithic ancestors. Pagel is produced by a brand called Bedrock Bakers, which “CrossFit enthusiast” Steven Friedman founded after discovering the versatility of cassava flour while on a wellness retreat in St. Lucia (relatable!) . Also, just as a fun fact, Friedman’s son, Maxwell Jacob Friedman, is a rising wrestling star.

Cassava is a root vegetable, and it is dried and ground to produce the flour which is the basis of Pagels, and has a high content of resistant starch which makes it potentially beneficial for weight loss and gut health. Other ingredients in Pagels (depending on flavor) include almond flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, yeast, salt, and honey.

I opted for the Tout flavor, as any self-respecting bagel lover would. My first impression was that they’re quite dense, and definitely not as bouncy as a traditional bagel – but, the distribution of all the seasoning was good, the size was about right, and I tried to stay optimistic that with the right preparation and toppings, the Pagel might pleasantly surprise me. The packaging strongly recommends toasting your Pagel, but I don’t own a toaster, so I implemented my usual workaround: heat the butter in a hot skillet and lightly press in the carb of my choice face down until browned and caramelized. Once toasted, I found that visually the Pagel actually served as a very reasonable facsimile of a New York baby.

Decent crispy caramelization on the edges of the Pagel

Next, cream cheese. Unfortunately my fridge was devoid of real schmear, but I still Trader Joe’s Everything But Bagel Dip handy, and I highly recommend it as a substitute. It’s made with Greek yogurt and has a fairly thick consistency, so while it’s definitely not the fluffy cream cheese you’d want on an authentic top-tier bagel, it does provide the creamy, tangy freshness that balances it all out. . Is it paleo? I have no idea.

All Pagel with Cream Cheese

At this point I tried the Pagel before adding lox. Friends, there is a crisis. There is chewing. Again, there is a difference in density in which the Pagel is noticeably more pasty or biscuity than its Jewish brethren. But to be paleo, it’s not so bad.

all Pagel with Lox

With smoked salmon and cream cheese, who can really tell the difference?

After layering the lox, I can confidently say that the Pagel does the job. Is it the same as a “real” bagel? Obviously not. But what you need to realize about bagels is that untoasted and without toppings, bagels really aren’t that exciting. It’s the complete package that makes them so irresistible, and most of these can be successfully integrated into a Pagel.

To be clear, Pagels are for those of us who have reasons why we can’t or don’t want to partake in a standard, extremely indulgent and delicious bagel. Who should buy Pagels? Those who are low carb, health conscious or calorie conscious; a standard New York bagel can contain between 320 and 800 calories even before adding spreads, plus 72 grams of carbs. Pages cap out at 260-300 calories, and 70% of the ingredients pass directly into the stomach (and are therefore undigested). Pagels are also a smart choice for our gluten-free friends, because if there’s a better gluten-free bagel, I’ve yet to come across it (and in Los Angeles, you come across plenty of gluten-free baked goods of varying quality ). They are quite comparable to a packaged bagel from a grocery store, Thomas’ or other; they do the job!

If you’re looking for a super classic, more decadent bagel, this might not be for you, but I’d still recommend trying these at least once, with a bunch of schmear and lox, just to find out how much you ‘you’re in for the bagel and how much you’re in for the cheese and smoked fish. Huzah.
