This tip is courtesy of Great Canadian Bagel – they had it written right on the bag, so I have to give credit where credit is due – but for those of you that buy your bagels elsewhere, you might not know this fantastic tidbit….
If you are like us, you buy a dozen at a time and freeze half so they don’t mold before you get to them.
Did you know that if you cut them in half before freezing,
they will be toaster-ready right out of the freezer?
When you are craving that next bagel, just bring out the halves and put them straight into the toaster – no defrosting!
I would have been concerned about freezer-burn, but if you remove as much air as possible from the bag before freezing, this won’t be an issue either.
Freeze bagels? I LOVE this!
Another one of those tips that should have been completely obvious, but I would never have come up with.
Thank you Great Canadian Bagel!
A little side note:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPA!
Have a great one!
