everything bagel

My carnivore loves him some bagels. Not just any bagel though. He is picky even in this food. (I know, your shocked.) While I can go for cinnamon raisin some days and onion others, he only wants one kind - salt. I'll be honest, before we started dating this particular bagel was never on my radar. I was too busy trying out everything from pumpkin spice to pumpernickel and even poppy seed. We used to search out local joints that would have the elusive salt bagel. No small feat I assure you. But now, with baby omnivore we have come to the conclusion that it is just easier to make them at home.

Now, I'm not talking from scratch people. That's just madness. No, I mean we make the salt bagels at home. The carnivore simple takes a plain bagel. Wets the top with a bit of tap water, and then dips the bagel in a plate of kosher salt. Viola - salt bagel! Of course, we don't stop there.

We both love to add a fried egg and melted cheddar cheese to our bagels. The carnivore of course can't resist bacon, while I prefer facon and mashed avocado. Butter is his preferred condiment while I like cream cheese. Served with crispy crowns, we spend our Sunday mornings stuffed in the comfort of our own kitchen these days perusing the paper and trying to stop the baby from feeding his breakfast to the dogs.

Oh, and in case you are wondering, I too have settled on a favorite bagel. Everything. Go figure!


  1. Aw Man! Breakfast sandwiches are so good and I always forget about them when breakfast time rolls around. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Your welcome! Sammies are the best thing when you are on the run in the morning.
