Take the Bagel Bakery to the Beach

The Bagel Bakery is the perfect spot for you to pick up a beach-day treat for you and your entire family to enjoy

Imagine this: the sun is out, the sky is blue, the seagulls are chirping and the waves are splashing against the shore. You and your family are sitting back and relaxing on the sand, listening to your favorite tunes and reading your favorite novel. It is the perfect summer beach day, but there is only one thing missing: a refreshing yet filling snack. You’re in luck because we at the Bagel Bakery have multiple options to satisfy your summer cravings.

  1. Salads from our salad bar/fruit salad- there is nothing quite as refreshing as a nice cup or bowl of salad or fruit salad on a hot day. The crunch of lettuce and the taste of juicy vegetables, paired with protein-rich, savory and delicious toppings is the perfect compliment to a day at the beach. For less than $7 each, you can get yourself either a small or large bowl to fill with your favorite salad combination, or a fruit salad bowl to satisfy your sweet tooth while also cooling yourself down.
  2. Our Turbulent Tuna Wrap- This wrap from the Bagel Bakery, paired with a crisp and cold drink, is light, refreshing and the perfect beach-day lunch. This meal will keep you full and satisfied, help you beat the heat, and give you energy to win that last race with your brother or play that second volleyball game with your friends. But, if you choose this option, beware of the jealous seagulls!!
  3. Our Californian Sandwich- This sandwich includes black label turkey breast, Swiss cheese, alfalfa sprouts, avocado, lettuce and tomato. These ingredients are the perfect combination of creamy, salty, juicy and cool. Just like its namesake, the Golden State, the Californian Sandwich is a beach bum’s favorite!

Don’t forget to stop by the Bagel Bakery on your way to your next beach day and grab a refreshing and delicious snack for you and the whole family to enjoy!

Happy National Pizza Party Day!

National pizza Party Day at Bagel Bakery

Today, May 18, is National Pizza Party Day! Based on the title of this holiday, it is expected of you to maybe order pizzas from your favorite place for you and your friends, or invite your loved ones over and make your own personal pizzas.

It may be just our opinion, but we think traditional pizza parties, where a group of people huddle around a TV and eat their favorite pizza pie, are completely overdone and no longer as fun as they used to be!

We here at the Bagel Bakery have two alternative options for how you should celebrate National Pizza Party Day:

  • Stop by the Bagel Bakery and order pizza bagels with your friends. When you order a Pizza Bagel at our store, you get one of our freshly made bagels, topped with cheese (or not), and your choice of toppings such as pepperoni, ham, sausage, onions or Peppers.

OR

  • Pick up a Bag O’ Bagels or two from the Bagel Bakery, stop by the Publix next door to us and pick up your favorite pizza toppings, such as sauce, cheese, mushrooms, olives and pepperoni, invite your favorite company, put on your favorite music and have a build your own pizza BAGEL party!!!

This year, break away from traditional celebrations and include the Bagel Bakery in on all of the fun!

Step 1: combine wheat flour, salt, water and yeast leavening to make the dough

Step 2: mix the dough in a mixer for about 10 minutes

Step 3: let dough stand for a while

Step 4: knead dough, then place in a bowl and let it rise until it has doubled in size

Step 5: divide dough into balls, and then shape each ball into a bagel

Step 6: carefully drop a few bagels at a time into a pot of boiling water for about 45 seconds, and flip each bagel once half way through

Step 7: remove any excess water from the bagels and then place on a greased baking sheet

Step 8: top with flavored seasonings if preferred

Step 9: bake bagels for about 30 minutes and then let cool

Step 10: ENJOY!!
