I had already cut fresh bagels into luncheon size pieces and froze them. I usually have a half a bagel with my soup and to start I put a frozen piece into the toaster oven on the bagel setting. By putting it in frozen the inside stays soft while the top comes out with a light crust. I pour a roasted garlic parmesan olive oil coating on top and then sprinkle on a seasoning blend - Herbes De Provence is my favorite. This combo is great with any soup. But if you have extra lunchtime prep time add a top layer of shredded Asiago and pop the bagel into a microwave for 20 seconds. The result is delicious. This simple recipe should also spark ideas in creating your own interpretation - say for example - a special side to serve with dinner guests.
This is our favorite garlic oil. he parmesan really adds to the flavor.
Deep rich flavor. I fried onions, peppers and steak in it and it was delicious.
Love the texture and lovely aroma
Perfect on some freshly made pasta with chopped parsley and parmeason
