Moin Forum!

I like Bagels, with sweet, and also hearty toppings. Good Bagels are hard to buy here in Germany, most eaters here confuse a good Bagel with a Donut...

What is your fav. topping for a Bagle, did you ever bake Bagles yourself?

I prefer a german-made Bagle "sweet", with salted Butter, Peanut Butter, and marmalade, "hearty" with butter, cream cheese, turkish garlic sausage, or Gravlax from Norway...   +++ Tabasco...

How do You like your fav. Bagel dinner?

Regards

Michael

A nice everything bagel; toasted,  with fresh vegetable cream cheese, sliced tomato, onions, and lettuce.  A little salt and pepper, and you're all set.

Should really be from "the city" though.

"turkish garlic sausage?"

Moin Bill Voss!

Turkish Sujuk is very well known here in Germany as a hot Pizza-Topping, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sujuk

This special sausage ranges from very mild, to very hot, I prefer the mild turkish versions, served with a pita, as a pizza topping, and on a bagel, or just plain, the variations are endless...

My favorite bagel sandwich is either an onion or sesame bagel with cream cheese, kippered salmon, a slice of tomato and red onion.

If the bagel is fresh, it doesn't get toasted.

The best bagels I have had are off a street cart in NYC.

A thin slathering of cream cheese, a ton of lox sticking out the sides and a bit of sweet onion.  I like this best on top of an onion bagel.

The lox could also be substituted with smoked white fish.

If a bagel is toasted all it needs is real butter.

If a bagel is fresh out of the oven, soft and hot...  I'll eat it plain if it's a sesame bagel.

Now I want all of the above!

I like my bagel with cream cheese.
 
The New York bagels are the most famous in the country. However, there are other areas in the country where a shop or small firm bakes excellent bagels. A few of my favorite shops in New York City:

I usually buy the "Everything Bagel" coated with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, coarse salt, fresh onion, and fresh garlic.

If you live in a bagel-deprived area, I suggest you see if any local supermarket carries Ray's NY Bagels . I was born & lived most of my life in the NYC area. During that time, I had bagels that were better than Ray's, but I also ate a ton of them that weren't as good.

I agree with David_NYC. I can get some pretty doggone good bagels here, but the best bagels I can get here are only as good as an average NYC bagel, and the best bagels in NYC are a work of the baker's art.

I'll take 'em almost any way. I suppose I prefer blueberry with cream cheese, and cinnamon/raisin with chunky peanut butter.

I'm working on a NYC bagel study right now.  Bagels in Manhattan are pretty much the focus.  I'm trying to find at places in at least 5 different neighborhoods that I can recommend to get a good Everything bagel with cream cheese (my favorite thing to get!).  Hope to finish up the study in a few weeks and follow-up with pictures and a report!

When I lived in Yonkers growing up one of my favorite things to do was to drive into The Bronx, under the L, and pick up a dozen or so bagels from the local bagel factory/store and drive home with that aroma permeating the car.

I get that same satisfaction almost now driving to Blue Ash and coming home with Marx bagels (owned by a Catholic but they follow all the Kosher rules).

That is probably not near  as bad as having to eat lousy pizza all over the country for the most part.

If you read the history of bagels you will find they began next door in Poland -  even given the world wars and the Holocaust I find it hard to fathom not being able to get great bagels there.

We have a great bagel factory store in Blue Ash so that is good for us - as far as good Italian bread Meijer Supermarket sells Ace Breads from Canada made like you mention and we get it generally about once a week or so as they are only 35 or so miles down the road.

Too bad you you can't get great pizza sent that way.

The next chance to buy fresh bagels is 20 kilometers from here, in the town of Oldenburg.

@ Twin...

to be a little serious, Bagels were unkown here in Germany, within the last 10 - 15 years, the Bagel came back to my homeland. Everything "jewish" is a bit problematic here, I do not like to talk about the Holocaust, and our eternal german shame.

Nowadays, here in Germany we have a multicultural supply of food, and also fantastic foreign dishes, and we love it, turkish Doener-Kebap is the best selling fast-food over here in Germany, not Currywurst, not even Bratwurst.

There are also many jewish kosher restaurants, to sorry only in the big major cities, I never had the chance to dine there.

Serving a Bagel to my grandmother (1914-2003), the ol lady thought, it was a piece of cake, with cream cheese and lox, she did not taste it...

Most of us germans are somewhat conservative, when it comes to "exotic" food, I like it, the variety, just great! 

Kind regards

Michael

Gyros (Greek): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyros

Doener Kebab (Turkish): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%B6ner_kebab

Both dishes are very tasty, you can buy this food all over Germany and Europe, I prefer thy typical turkish Doener Kebab as sandwich (Pita), or scalloped with Mozzarella or Gouda cheese, add some Pommes (French Fries), and you are happy.

Re:Bagel...? 2010/06/27 13:33:05
I've tried a couple of bagel places in Upstate South Carolina in recent weeks.

A couple weeks back, I had a bagel with lox, cream cheese, tomatoes and capers at The (Hudson) Bagel Company in Clemson. That's how they spell the name; don't know why Hudson is in parentheses.

I really liked it. It was the first time I'd ever had lox. So tasty!

This morning I had breakfast with friends at the Greenfield Deli in Greenville, SC. Had a bagel with nova (the counterman described it as less salty lox), tomatoes, onions, lettuce and cream cheese, on a sun-dried tomato bagel. I paired it with a side of health salad, which I'd never tried before. I really liked it. And the bagel was delicious.

I noticed too late that they had a selection of Dr. Brown sodas, including the cel-ray. I'll have to get one next time.
