It appears as though I must cut down on carbs and limit my bagel intake.

@mhrackin: ...my wife wanted me to take and post a "selfie" with my classic bagel/cream cheese/onion/lox/tomato Sunday breakfast, but I was too hungry to wait to eat!

Why didn;t your wife take the photo while you were gorging yourself?

A couple of pointers (based on an engineering approach to the problem):

1.  Don't microwave any bagel other than a frozen one (reference my "recipes" post earlier).  If it's just a bit stale, toast lightly.  Very stale, put it out for the birds!  Extremely stale, throw at any squirrel attacking the bird feeder.

2.  If bagel is frozen AND a bit stale or freezer-burned, nuke in a bag (paper, rolled up opening) for a time best determined experimentally, taking into account size/weight of the bagel in question and the power of your microwave.  My optimum turned out to be 31-32 seconds for a largish bagel HALF. solidly frozen, and this produces excellent results for me 98% of the time.  The few failures will have one or two small "extra-chewy" lumps that can be a challenge to consume.

The above also assumes bagels were frozen immediately after being sliced while still warm from the oven!  BTW, Max, my wife wanted me to take and post a "selfie" with my classic bagel/cream cheese/onion/lox/tomato Sunday breakfast, but I was too hungry to wait to eat!

@perl_geek: On the one occasion I tried microwaving a bagel, it appeared to have been vulcanised [...] How do you avoid this?

Don't microwave your bagel :-)

To remember the proper bagel preparation technique, you should recite the Bagel Sutra.

 

"We do not need to keep the bagels whole. We need to keep the bagel's hole."

On the one occasion I tried microwaving a bagel, it appeared to have been vulcanised. It became unbelievably chewy, nearly resistant to any shearing forces exerted by human teeth. How do you avoid this?

@maxthemagnificent I like my bagels really well done, cinammon raisin, with cream cheese on the side (otherwise it gets melty if it's put on a hot bagel)

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).
