Bagel Bomb

Squeezing cream cheese inside a bagel is kind of a brilliant idea.

But the bagel bomb isn’t really a bagel. The brilliant part of a good bagel is the hole. The hole allows for a bagel to have a high surface to center ratio, getting a crispy exterior and soft doughy interior. The bagel bomb just has cream cheese, like a deep fried popper, but with a bagel exterior.

A good filling breakfast, the bagel bomb can be ordered warm. Ultimately though, the bomb part of it loses the essence of bagels.
