I've been thinking about breakfast a lot lately. I just recently wrote about my idea for savory cottage cheese with vegetables and poached eggs in green olive caponata. And today, I'm thinking carbs! I might be thinking, craving, and dreaming about carbs especially since this is the first year I am trying to observe Passover rules. Not as easy as I thought. So as I'm sitting here, thinking about bread, I thought I would share with you the quintessential breakfast I had just a few weeks ago in New York at Pick-a-Bagel.
One might be overwhelmed by the options - the variety of bagels and flavored cream cheese looked endless.
What a girl to do? My sister and I decided to share. We opted for a larger in diameter, but thinner version of the bagel with a very generous schmear of White Fish spread and sliced tomatoes. Add a side of sour and half sour pickles, a cup of coffee, and breakfast is served!
Do you like your bagels toasted or not? I'm a big fan of a toasted version and these New York bagels were perfect! Lovely and crisp on the outside, they had a perfect barrier against the white fish spread - no soggy bagels here!
If you are lucky to live in New York city, stop by and pick up a bagel. I would love to hear from you what's your favorite combination is.
