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!
