Try a sliced bagel, toasted, with butter or cream cheese and jam. Our bagel, even after it has been cut in half, is sometimes too large for the conventional toaster. In this instance, the bagel must be compressed after cutting in order to fit into the toaster slots.
The bagel will make anything taste better. Consider using it in the construction of your next sandwich. A traditional favorite is composed of lox (smoked salmon) and cream cheese strategically placed between the two halves of a sliced bagel with a slice of tomato and onion to liven up your sandwich.
Your bagel will always taste better when it is hot, worth taking the time to heat it. A toaster or toaster oven is best, to refresh the crust.
