Ask the Bagel Guru
. Q: What is your favorite way to eat a bagel?
A: Double toasted with cream cheese, red onion, and a slice of tomato.
Q: What is cream cheese good on besides bagels?
A: Everything it's kind of like bacon. Those little hot peppers you buy at the olive bar at Fred Myers or Carr's. Stuff a little cream cheese in the hole where the pit came out, excellent.
Q: What are bagels made of?
A: The Basics! If we're talking about a plain bagel it doesn't get more basic; water, flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. And of course the number one ingredient, love. Ha Ha
Q: Does a bagel have sugar in it?
A: You bet it does, but all things in moderation are okay right? There are not many types of bread that do not have sugar in them. Remember a carbohydrate is a sugar in essence.
Q: What is less healthy to eat a bagel or a doughnut?
A: A doughnut for sure, plus when is the last time you only ate one doughnut?

"The bagel is a lonely roll to eat all by yourself because in order for the true taste to come out you need your family. One to cut the bagels, one to toast them, one to put on the cream cheese and the lox, one to put them on the table and one to supervise."
Gertrude Berg (1899-1966)

History of the Bagel

Bagels should be found in the dictionary under fun, but according to Webster (who probably liked his with a shmear) a bagel is "a hard bread roll made of yeast dough twisted into a small doughnutlike shape, cooked in simmering water, then baked." The bagel is the only bread product that is boiled before it is baked. That's what gives the bagel its unique texture and the crust its characteristic shine.
Legend has it that in 1683 in Vienna, Austria, a local Jewish baker wanted to thank the king of Poland for protecting his countrymen from Turkish invaders. He made a special hard roll in the shape of a riding stirrup-Bugel in German - commemorating the king's favorite pastime and giving the bagel its distinct shape.
As bagels gained popularity in Poland, they were officially sanctioned as gifts for women in childbirth and mentioned in community registers. Mothers used them as nutritious teething rings that their infants could easily grasp - a practice still popular today.
Bagels eventually made their way to Russia, where they were called bubliki and were sold on strings. Like other ring-shaped objects, they were said to bring good luck and possess magical powers. It is even said that songs were sung about bagels!
