Bagels?

I like bagels!

My current favorite is asiago cheese bagels baked by the bakery of a local grocery store. I also like everything bagels, onion bagels, and will settle for plain bagels in a pinch.

I've never tried the sweet ones, such as cinnamon raisin, but they just don't sound all that good to me.

I like to split an asiago cheese bagel, toast it, and slather real butter on it. That is good stuff. For the others mentioned above, I prefer to cover them up with cream cheese.

They also make a good substitute for toast with eggs and whatever breakfast meat I happen to have available.

Do you like bagels?

    I like onion or everything with cream cheese and some smoked salmon. Unfortunately, I have to watch what I eat now, so bagels and donuts are only consumed on super rare occasions anymore.

    Don't care much for store bought bagels, they seem like rubbery white bread. Bagel shop bagels are a lot better, but then, bagels are another item no longer on my menu!! To many carbs!!

    But a good smear of cream cheese and some strawberry jam gets me drooling!

    When I was a kid, there was a place in Milwaukee called "New York Bagels and Bialeys" that had the best bagels I've ever had. Onion, egg, and sesame were my favorites and fresh out of the oven, they were awsome even with nothing on them. I've found other bagel shops that were ok but none that were as good as that place.

    There is something about bagels made with NY/NJ water that are different from other places (kinda like pizza). I like bagels and a local shoppe makes a cheese and jalapeño bagel that is damn good but a good old plain Murray’s Bagel of NYC, site manager has connections and he brings in a couple dozen every so often, toasted with cream cheese is my favorite.

    When I was a kid, we lived in St. Louis, for a few years. My mother worked at a stop & rob, in the University City area, large Jewish community. There was a bakery in the same mall, that had the best bagels. She would take me to work with her and I would run to the bakery and wait for them to pull a batch out of the oven. Later, we moved to Arkansas and would go back to visit my brother, a couple of times a year. Whenever we were about to head home, I'd talk my mother into stopping at the bakery and I'd get 10 dozen bagels, to go. My mother didn't like bagels so that 10 dz. kept me happy, for months.

    Yep. And maybe a slice of tomato.

    Being raised in the Deep South, bagels was just a common misspelling of beagles. I had a lot of the latter, not much of the former.

    But, my wife is Jewish, so I've been exposed a bt.

    An onion bagel with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and capers occasionally passes for breakfast around here. I'd prefer biscuits and brown gravy, but marriage is a compromise. I invariably loose compromises.

    My favorite is either onion or egg bagels lots of cream cheese ( Philadelphia) and smoked salmon, growing up on Miami Beach there was no shortage of good Jewish N.Y. delis and bakery's, since i moved back to FLA. i found a place called "TooJays" there all over south and central Fl. real N.Y. style deli fresh made bagels and they dont skimp on the salmon.

    Whenever I go to NY most of what I eat is pizza and bagels. Hard to find ones that compare locally unfortunately. I love a good poppy, jalapeno cheddar, or just plain bagel from the right place. I eat them plain or as a bacon egg and cheese sandwich.

    I'm the complete opposite of you Jerry, I've never had a savory bagel. Cinnamon Raisin and Blueberry are my favorites. Toasted and either buttered or smeared with cream cheese.

    I like them, but can't tell you the last time I've had one.

    I love them, can't have them much anymore as a bagel is at LEAST 45grams of carbs. But my favorite way is topped with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and a fresh tomato slice with a little salt on it.

    bagel thins ....pass. I do like sweeter ones as well. Chocolate chip and blueberry. But I usually go for the savory ones.

    Local grocer's in store bakery makes some rockin' bagels...favorite is a combo they do on a rare occasion; everything with baked in cheddar, swiss and munster cheese. Toast it and real butter and done.

    Also makes a great platform for a sandwich

    I don’t get bagels very often, but the best I had were delivered every morning to a hotel I was staying at in NYC. They really are different. Must be the water.

    When I do eat bagels I prefer onion or everything, split, with a THIN layer of cream cheese. I am not fond at all of going heavy on the condiments.

    When I lived in Noo Yawk the best bagels I ever ate were from a local shop, and if you got there at around 10pm they were just out of the oven......pure bagel heaven. BTW, the best bagels, Italian and Chinese food were from the area in a 50 mile radius of NYC.

    I used to go to NYC in the 60s, had a friend whose shop was on Mott St. just S of Canal, walk 2 blocks in any direction for the best food of any type, in the 30s my mom bought all her fish at the Fulton Ave. fish market.

    I like cinnamon raisin and blueberry, toasted with butter & grape jelly. Deadly. Which is why I avoid them.

    Tomi got me hooked on French toast bagels! Not a big fan of French toast, but with the confectioners sugar and crumb topping, they are pretty tasty. When I'm acting my age, I just have a plain or onion bagel with butter or cream cheese. We have this place called the bagel station by us and it is NY style bagels with a huge variety to choose from.

    We made a trip to Costco yesterday. The store had bagels, but not asiago cheese bagels. They did have parmesan cheese bagels, so I bought some.

    They're not bad. They're not as strongly flavored as the asiago cheese ones, but still have enough of a savory flavor to let you know that a little extra has been added.

    If you like the savory bagels, and have a Costco near by, give 'em a try.

    Oh hell yes!!! I love bagels. And one more thing, I love good bagels. And Jews make the BEST bagels. Of course, they are Jewish cuisine. As far as store bought I love Linders. My favorite is plain bagels served smoking hot with butter. But my favorite flavored bagel is Blueberry. One of those, both sides of a split one, and some good fresh hot coffee and I'm set.
