Every morning, scores of people greet the day with a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich on a bagel. But a shop in Brooklyn has asked — Why not double up and bake those ingredients right into the bagel? Thus, we bring you the bacon, egg & cheese bagel.
“Everyone loves bacon. I don’t care who you are,” explains Scot Rossillo of The Bagel Stores in Brooklyn. “Even if you are a vegan, you at least love the smell of bacon.”
So, inspired by a Neapolitan specialty known as lard bread, Scot decided to add chunks of fresh-cooked bacon, ground black pepper and cheddar cheese to an egg bagel.
And you’ll never guess what he says is the best way to eat one:
This bagel does not replace the texture of regular bacon, egg and cheese, but if you add bacon, egg and cheese to a bacon, egg and cheese bagel, it certainly increases the flavor. That’s very popular right now. It will heighten the experience for you to a new level of satisfaction.
I’m tempted to throw a KFC Double Down between two halves of bacon, egg & cheese bagel just to see which part of my body shuts down first.
