For better or worse my breakfast food of choice.
I come from a long line of bread eaters.  Bread is the one food I definitely overindulge in and one day it will probably be my undoing.  About 25 years ago bagels became all the rage in this country.  Bagel shops seemed to be popping up everywhere.  The country may have moved on to other fads but I have not.  I have a bagel for breakfast at least 5 or 6 days a week.  It seems that I just can't help myself.      …

About this food


A bagel is a bread product, traditionally shaped by hand into the form of a ring from yeasted wheat dough, roughly hand-sized, which is first boiled for a short time in water and then baked. The result is a dense, chewy, doughy interior with a browned and sometimes crisp exterior. Bagels are often topped with seeds baked on the outer crust, with the traditional ones being poppy or sesame seeds. Some also may have salt sprinkled on their surface, and there are also a number of different dough types such as whole-grain or rye.

Bagels have become a popular bread product in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.  Like other bakery products, bagels are available (either fresh or frozen, and often in many flavour varieties) in many major supermarkets in those countries.

The basic roll-with-a-hole design is hundreds of years old and has other practical advantages besides providing for a more even cooking and baking of the dough: the hole could be used to thread string or dowels through groups of bagels, allowing for easier handling and transportation and more appealing seller displays
