This past Saturday I was reminded of how effortlessly perfect an everything bagel is for breakfast. Freshly toasted, slathered in cream cheese- oh is that heaven. Everyone seems to be a on a best burger or best cupcake hunt these days. I am on a perpetual best everything bagel hunt. Luckily we live just blocks away from Brooklyn Bagel (oddly named since we don’t live in Brooklyn), that makes some of the best everything bagels I’ve ever had. Another favorite is none other than Murray’s Bagels, thankfully located in my dad’s neighborhood in NY. In my mind, the key to a good everything bagel is first and foremost a high quality bagel- crispy on the outside, soft and spongy on the inside, as well as the dispersement of seasonings. The seasonings must go all around the bagel, not just on the top. Otherwise the bottom is just like eating a plane bagel- I did not sign up for that.
Do you have a favorite bagel shop, or even better, a favorite everything bagel?
