3 delicious new bagels at Coles

New Coles BagelsIt’s the cooking method that makes bagels wonderfully moist, dense and chewy on the inside, and crispy on the outside. Slowly-fermented yeast dough is formed into donut shapes, then carefully boiled before baking. Our Bakery team are excited to introduce three new varieties of bagels prepared in the time honoured tradition to make the perfect base for a tasty brunch or lunch.

Try them with our simple filling ideas:

  1. Plain Bagels Split bagels and spread cut sides with capsicum dip. Fill with rocket leaves, thinly sliced pastrami, sliced field tomato, cucumber and gherkins.
  2. Multigrain Bagels Split bagels and spread the cut sides with cream cheese mixed with chopped fresh dill and chopped preserved lemon or finely grated lemon rind. Fill with thinly sliced red onion, mixed leaves and smoked salmon.
  3. Raisin & Cinnamon Bagels Split bagels and toast. Top each half with fresh ricotta mixed with a little vanilla extract, sliced banana and drizzle with maple syrup.
