@MeasurementBlues: ...by "slicing" I meant that you slice the bagel into, well slices. Each half must continat a cimplete hole. If you "cut a bagel in half" you end up with two half circles.

Ah -- now I understand -- I must admit that your earlier ramblings had left me baffled, bewildered, and confused

@Max wrote Wake Up & Smell the Bagels and there appears to be some question as to the definition of bagel slicing.

I don't think Martin was compaining about slicing the bagel in the horizontal plane, leaving the hole as a whole(??). I am sure he was maintaing that bagel purity is compromiised by slicing it vertically after slicing it horizontally.

@Antedeluvian is correct, by "slicing" I meant that you slice the bagel into, well slices. Each half must continat a cimplete hole. If you "cut a bagel in half" you end up with two half circles. That is a descration of the sacred bagel and, well, there ought to be a law.

@Max

Culinary masterpiece? You mean culinary disaster!

just that adding bacon (perhaps with a few chives or green onions) on top of the cream cheese transforms a humble bagel into a culinary masterpiece ... I'm drooling just thinking about it (or maybe I'm just drooling)

There are those who would say that eve  raisins should not be bagel flavors, only onion, garlic, and maybe seeds.

"I take umbrage at the comment that a jalapeno bagel is not a pure food."

It may be a food, but it's not a bagel. IMHO. But I'll grant you this, Kupel's has jalapeno bagels, but at least you can't get one there with bacon on it.

Martin I take umbrage at the comment that a jalapeno bagel is not a pure food. It is in fact one of the most perfect out there.

I guess I should clarify that the BAGELS were "au naturelle" not the consumers!  Reminds me of the then-current translation of MIT's Latin motto: "clean mind, clean body; take your pick!" (apologies to the great math professor Tom Lehrer who came up with it).
