Opinion: Most Bagels Are Round Bread, Slice Them Any Way You Like

April 3, 2019 Featured, Popular Culture No Comments

When I first heard about bagelgate my initial thought was it was wrong to slice bagels like bread. Then I remembered a couple of points:

  • Most bagels today aren’t bagels, they’re round bread with a hole. Authentic bagels spend days in a cooler, are then put in boiling water before being baked. These are commonly known as water bagels.
  • I’ve been to events/meetings where the hosts included bread-sliced bread bagels. This is very convenient for groups.

At home we have a proper bagel slicer, but if I were buying a box to take to feed a crowd I’d certainly get them bread sliced!

Here are the results of the recent non-scientific Sunday Poll:

  • Strongly agree: 2 [8%]
  • Agree: 1 [4%]
  • Somewhat agree: 2 [8%]
  • Neither agree or disagree: 4 [16%]
  • Somewhat disagree: 2 [8%]
  • Disagree:5 [20%]

You can get water bagels in the St. Louis region, a couple of options include The Bagel Factory and Bridge Bread.
