+14 A bagel is actually a terrible vehicle for a sandwich. amirite?

by Puzzleheaded-Bat3307 1 month ago

Making a good sandwich means using the appropriate type of bread. Sliced salami and hard cheeses are ok in bagels as they can stay in place and don't fall apart while you try to bite through it. Try to make a salami sandwich with soft white bread and the bread can rip apart in your hands as you try to rip off a chunk of the salami. Soft, creamy fillings like tuna or egg salad should go in soft breads or else you get the toothpaste tube effect that you do with bagels.

Soft fresh bagel. Not grocery store bagel. A sandwich in a grocery store bagel is like a punishment.

Once at a bbq restaurant in Idaho I was served a "pulled pork sandwich" on what was clearly a bagel from Winco. Worst sandwich I've ever had.

by koelpinmckenna 1 month ago

Can't you just put a grocery bagel in a pan with a bit of water to steam it?

by Anonymous 1 month ago

You can do stuff to it to turn it into food. Cutting it in half and putting stuff on it is not enough.

by Eunice99 1 month ago

Toast the bagel. It solves the thickness and the solidness problem. Most toasters have a bagel setting that only toasts the inside. Bagels are delicious for sandwiches, but not raw, untoasted bagels lol

Bagel burgers are delicious. Toast the bagel and put cream cheese on it then put a burger patty with lettuce and tomato. No cheese slice because the cream cheese suffices. Yum.

As someone who's had hundreds of bagel sandwiches, I will 1000% disagree with you here. Maybe you're just not making the right type of sandwiches for them.

by Anonymous 1 month ago

I find cutting them in half allows me to eat it with far less mess. Toasting also helps break through the "squishyness"

by Distinct_Tutor4800 1 month ago

Interesting. I prefer them whole, as it makes the vertical to horizontal ratio feel more stable. Otherwise it falls into the same trap burgers at restaurants do where it's so tall and skinny that nothing stays in place

Why has no one invented a so-called bagel puncher? You make your sandwich in your bagel and then punch out the middle. That middle bite is always weird, I don't need it.

Thats why you either toast it or apply the sauce early, then smash it a lil. Bagels are best for a smear of something but a toasted breakfast bagel cut in half and smashed down a lil, perfecto.

As someone who works a job where I usually only have a few minutes to eat during a 12 hour shift, I appreciate the fact that a bagel fills me up a lot more than bread. Quality of the sandwich aside, for this reason I prefer bagel sandwiches 🤷🏼‍♂️

Yeah, but "vehicle for a sandwich" is a rather odd usage, even with this definition. Vehicle for sandwich fillings, I'd give you.

by Puzzleheaded_Site599 1 month ago

You've just described what all sandwiches are, at least for me. Unless we're talking thin cold cut sandwiches or peanut butter and jelly, I pretty much eat all sandwiches these days with a knife and fork and deconstruct them a little at a time while I eat. Less mess, less fuss, more joy.

Not for a bacon egg and cheese. The egg and cheese fill the voids in the bagel making it a perfect breakfast sandwich.

This is why tortillas are superior. I use them instead of bread for sandwiches. Less calories than bread, and you can fit more in it without stuff falling out.

by Anonymous 1 month ago

Yes, well... a burrito is not a sandwich. Also, a 12" flour tortilla that can "fit more in" is ~350 calories, compared to ~165 for 2 slices of white bread.

by Puzzleheaded_Site599 1 month ago

Not a burrito, a wrap. You wouldn't call a chicken salad in a tortilla a burrito. And burrito sized tortillas I see are in the 200 calorie range. And white bread is gross. Rye bread is superior!
