Dead Sea Salt and Montreal Steak bagels, fresh out of the oven. [Click to embiggen.]
In the normal course of events, I try not to consume too much in the way of breadstuffs in general and bagels in particular. Nevertheless, I cranked out a batch of home-baked bagels yesterday... as requested by the Mistress of Sarcasm. How could I say no to my baby?
Sure, it’s more work than simply cruising over to the Local Bagel and Smoked Fish Emporium, but where else are you gonna get flavors like Dead Sea Salt, Montreal Steak, and Black & White Sesame?
Hot out of the oven and slathered with sweet butter, or bedecked with a few thin slices of smoked salmon, these bad boys were All That. Now: what’s for lunch?
