Did You Know – Bagels

Did you know that if bagels get stale you can refresh them?

Just dampen a paper towel and wrap it around the bagel.

Microwave the wrapped bagel on high for 10-20 seconds and it should taste like it was just baked!

  2. Thanks, Diane! My husband goes to the bagel store fairly often and always buys more than we need. I freeze most of them and defrost one or two as desired. I find just placing the defrosted bagel in a small paper bag similar to the ones from your local pharmacy and nuking for 15-20 seconds restores it to just-baked freshness. And the bags are reusable! 🥯

    PS – I’ve defrosted frozen bagels in the microwave; I don’t like the way they come out. For my taste, it’s best to let them defrost naturally … overnight in a zip lock bag does the trick. BAG-EL!

      • My mouth was watering when you did that post about how he makes those cheese bagels … he won’t have time for that now with a brand-new baby in the house. 🙂

      • The baby has been up every hour at night! He seems to have his days and nights mixed up. We visited him yesterday and I got t see one eye then he slept. Of course grandma cuddling and rocking probably didn’t help. 🤣

      • You are a pro when it comes to soothing babies Diane. My mom told me when they brought me home from the hospital after my first 2 weeks in an incubator as I was tiny, I did the very same thing. My mom would sit up with me so my father could sleep and finally she asked the doctor if something was wrong that I did that. He gave her some “potion” to make me sleep, then I slept so much my mom worried and had to call the doctor again. 🙂

      • I’d do better with a puppy than a baby having never been around them. My mom never said what it was he told her to give me, just that she finally got a good night’s rest but worried when I didn’t wake up.
