I'm sure they are fattening...especially the way I like them with butter and jelly but I love them. Their great for breakfast with my coffee and as a snack. I don't like them plain they have to be toasted just a bit because I don't like them too crunchy. I'm very fussy about my bagels. My favorite is cinnamon raisin and I think it's the sweetness that I like so much. If you like bagels what is your favorite and do you put anything on it? If you don't like bagel do you know why?

OH yes I have put cream cheese on them but I try to stay away from it for weight and cholesterol reasons.

My feelings about bagels are that I can take them or leave them, ctry. When my youngest daughter was still living at home she would buy them all the time. I would eat one occasionally. They aren't something that I add to my grocery list. I lean more toward hot biscuits or cinnamon rolls. I guess it's a throwback to my southern upbringing.

I would say it's definitely from your southern upbringing. The biscuits are great though.

I like onion bagels and like to put creme cheese on it. I haven't had a bagel in awhile as the bagel factory is in Los Angeles and I live very far from it. The store bought bagels are not that good.

The only sandwich I've ever made with bagels is the egg kind but I'm going to try egg salad one of these days. That sounds good to me!

I like bagels, not the plain ones, but the multigrain ones you get at Tim Hortons. I like them either with butter or with cream cheese plus a bowl of soup. I used to buy them at Safeway, but when I learned that they are fattening --even without the cream cheese, I only have them occasionally. I find the cinnamon raisin a bit too sweet for me. You know I even tried to make some, a bread machine recipe, but it did not turn out that well. If I am adventurous, I will look for a recipe on the net.

I do like them with cream cheese but because of the calories I seldom use it.

Cinnamon and raisin or plain bagels are my favorites. I like them with cream cheese and sometimes with butter too. Toasted or plain is fine. I don't like frozen bagels though.

The truth is I don't even taste it yet. Because it's not an ordinary habit in my country to provide bagel for breakfast or just for snack. but I think I'm gonna like it if I taste it.

No I am not a bagel person. To me they taste like an over baked pretzel, LOL. I think they are too tough to chew. That an I just don't like their flavor.

I love bagels. I usually eat an egg and cheese bagel every morning for breakfast. But i also like bagels just toasted with butter and cinnamon sugar. yummy! I always get Thomas' bagels because they're most definitely the best! I usually also get plain or wheat. Anything else tastes weird with eggs i think.

I love my bagels. I like the onion flavored bagels. I have mine with herb and garlic light cream cheese on them. It is a really good combination you should really try it. I am very fussy about my bagels to i do also like the kind with the raisins and cinnimon with butter though.

Yummy. I love bagels very much. I like munching them during snack. But I really like eating them when traveling. My husband and I often travel during weekends just for sight-seeing or go to the movies. To go to town will take almost one hour, so usually I will bring along bagels in the car to enjoy the moment of traveling. Lol. But it was long ago, now I am on a diet regimen and I can't enjoy the luxurious taste of bagels anymore. Lol. Anyway I cheated once in a while, especially when we passed through a bakery and the sweet fragrant of bagels just made my mouth water. So, what else? We bought them and ate them, my husband enjoyed them but me regretting it later. Lol. That's me. Happy munching!

I L-O-V-E bagels!! I agree with you, they must be toasted otherwise they are a bit "blah". I prefer butter and lots of cream cheese on the top.

I love the taste of cinnamon raisin bagels, toasted, with butter BUT I do not like the way bagels make me overfull. I do not eat them very often.

I love bagels. When I was young, I used to eat 4 everyday after school. I usually like them with melted kraft singles or with regualr cream cheese. Toasted is always and added bonus, but it doesn't have to been. I have been known to even eat them plain...

If I am going to eat one, I want an everything bagel with low fat veggie creamy cheese and big mug of hot tea. Love it but can only indulge once in a while because of the calories. Low calorie/fat bagels aren't even worth eating. lol.

Ah, onion bagels are one of my favorite foods. I like them with cream cheese or with butter. Yum. I don't treat myself to them very often though. :-)
