FOOD FUN: Stuffed Bagel Buns Baking Kit
We first encountered petite stuffed bagels at a trade show, some 10 years ago.
Made by a Canadian company, they were a delight for the eyes. They were not the traditional two halves of a bagel with cream cheese, but a dome shape with cream cheese piped inside.
They tasted the same as a traditional bagel and cream cheese, with a bonus: the dome was more tender, less laboriously chewy than a New York-style bagel.
Sold frozen, we waited for them to come to the U.S. Alas, they never did.
In 2014, Bantam Bagels opened up a shop in Greenwich Village, selling the same idea freshly baked. It expanded to a nationally-distributed frozen business.
A couple of years ago, Nancy’s Petite Stuffed Bagels debuted, also frozen.
Now, King Arthur Flour has teamed with Milk Bar pastry chef Christina Tosi to create a kit version of her Bagel Bombs. King Arthur Flour calls them Stuffed Bagel Buns.
The dome bagels in the kit are stuffed with a cheddar and cream cheese filling and sprinkled with everything bagel topping.
The kit contains everything you need to make them at home. Along with the recipe, you’ll get:
