The Man, the Myth, the Legendary Classic Bagel!
Yes, these are plain bagels, but there’s nothing “plain” about them. In the classic Montreal-style artisan tradition, the bagels take a dip in boiling water before baking in Siegel’s classic wood burning oven. This gives them a delightfully crusty outside and chewy inside with a slight hint of smoke and malt. Toast them up then pile on your favourite toppings- smoked meats, cream cheese, egg and ham- the possibilities are endless.
SIZE: Half Dozen
INGREDIENTS: flour, water, eggs, malt, sugar, canola oil, honey, yeast, sesame seeds
STORAGE: For best results, keep the bag well sealed. Do not refrigerate. Bagels stay fresh for up to 3 days. To maintain oven freshness, toast or warm in the oven. Siegel’s Bagels freeze well. HINT: As it is difficult to slice a frozen bagel, we recommend slicing prior to freezing.
ABOUT SIEGEL’S BAGELS
Authentic Montreal-style wood fired bagels.
Siegel’s Bagels was created with one purpose- to bring Montreal-style bagels to Vancouver. Joel Siegel founded this award winning bakery over 30 years ago in 1990, and to this day it is still family-owned and run. He grew up working in a bagel shop in Montreal, but when he moved to Vancouver he could not find great quality Montreal-style bagels. Most local bagels were “fluffy imitations”, instead of the filling, chewy, boiled and baked perfect bagels of Montreal. Saddened by the lack of quality bagels in Vancouver, Joel would visit Montreal and come home with suitcases full of bagels. Soon after, he decided to start making his own Montreal style bagels here in Vancouver.
Siegel’s Bagels is proud to sell delectable Montreal-style bagels at the deli in Kitsilano and in the Granville Island Public Market. They bake constantly throughout the day and night, providing you with the freshest bagels ’round’! In the Montreal-style tradition, their bagels are boiled then baked in a classic wood burning oven which gives them a genuine crusty outside and chewy inside that is so satisfying to sink your teeth into! Not only are they authentic and delicious, Siegel’s bagels are high in long-lasting energy, preservative free, low in fat (98.5% fat free!) and they come in a wide variety of flavours, from the traditional sesame to Siegel’s own recipes like rosemary rock salt and ancient grains.
