Bagel Brunch!

I don't know what it is about bagels, but I love them.

Love, love, love them.

What else do I love?

Well, a lot of things. But for the purposes of this post... BRUNCH!

So, this week I picked up some bagels and this weekend, I had an Aha! moment.

Why can't I french toast a bagel?! Well... boys and girls... I can now tell you without any hesitation that there is no good reason why I (or you) can't french toast a bagel.

Walk this way.

Step 1: Turn on Grey's Anatomy (oh hai, Arizona!) and slice your bagel at least once. I sliced mine into 4 pieces. 3 would be perfect... but my bagel was pre-sliced. So... 4.

Step 2: Crack two eggs into a big, shallow bowl. Whisk them up with 1/2 tablespoon of milk, 1/4 tsp of cinnamon extract, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.

Step 3: Dip a slice-o-bagel in the egg mixture, and fry it up.

Step 4: Reassemble the bagel as the slices are fried. Place in front of Grey's Anatomy episode still in progress.

Step 5: Add butter and syrup to taste. Enjoy the bagelly goodness.

Mmmm... I wholeheartedly approve.

What would be better? Some sort of fruit topping. Or filling. Or cream cheese filling with a fruit topping. Just saying.

Those bagelly layers are just screaming for something colorful and tasty. Hmm... I'll keep you posted.

Carry on, brunchers!

You're a genius! I am so excited about this. I might do this this weekend for the bachelorette party fun times. I'm thinking Marscapone and some kind of jelly.

omg why is this so brilliant? So easy. So brilliant!

Side note: my coworker tells me the other day she doesn't like bagels. Had I been our boss, I would have fired her on the spot.

Saying you don't like bagels is like saying you don't like bread. Or your health. Or oxygen.

I just can't understand that.

Oh my bagel-y goodness! This reminds me of the cinnamon bun french toast at IHOP! Great idea, Amanda!
