A bagel is a type of bread that is made by boiling dough made from wheat flour, yeast, sugar, and salt, and then baking it. The dough is traditionally shaped into a ring before boiling and baking, giving the bagel its characteristic shape. Bagels can be eaten plain, or with a variety of toppings such as cream cheese, butter, jam, or deli meats. They are popular in Jewish cuisine and particularly associated with New York City and other areas with large Jewish populations. Bagels are often served as a breakfast or brunch item, but can also be eaten as a sandwich for lunch or dinner.
The round shape and hole in the middle make it a visually striking object that lends itself to bagel jokes, puns, or other forms of wordplay. Let’s read on!
