New York Bakery Co make all of their bagels the authentic NY way by boiling them before they are stone-baked.

It gives the bagels a deliciously chewy crust and a soft, fluffy centre.

Whether you are looking for a tasty breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner – New York Bakery Co have it covered with the best bagels around.

Making its debut as the perfect breakfast bagel is the new Fruit & Oat flavour which is low in fat and a source of fibre.

There are 4 Fruit & Oat bagels in the pack, full of juicy cranberries, succulent raisins, sunflower seeds and topped with crunchy oats.

We have been enjoying Fruit & Oat bagels for breafast by halving them and lightly toasting, then spreading butter and jam.

They are nice and crunchy on the outside, but soft and sweet on the inside.

Fruit & Oat bagels go down nicely with a cup of tea and coffee, for a great start of the day!

First we made a cold open bagel sandwich with halves of Red Onion & Chive bagels.

Each half bagel was topped up with ham, tomato, cucumber and a sprinkle of black pepper.

The open bagel sandwich made a lovely lunch prepared in only a few minutes.

The red onion and chive from the bagel complimented the sandwich, giving it a lovely taste!

Little man asked me to have pizza for lunch, so we made pizza bagels.

We started by halving the bagels and spreading BBQ sauce on them.

Then we topped up the bagels with ham, cheese, tomato and a sprinkle of crushed oregano.
