We recommend warming or toasting for optimal texture and flavor.
If you won’t be eating these Pretzel Bagels within a few days, we recommend slicing and freezing them – we noticed that they mold fairly quickly otherwise. But don’t worry; they thaw, reheat and toast very easily in an oven or toaster.
Pro tip: stack the bagel halves on top of each other prior to freezing so they separate easier when frozen.
It’s easy to roll your eyes at the pretzelfication of everything these days, but we urge you not to. These Pretzel Bagels from TJ’s are a real treat.
They have a deliciously chewy texture, and have the right amount of subtle pretzel flavor (including that classic baking soda tinge from the bath they were boiled in). Don’t worry, they are not at all salty (think pretzels before salt chunks were applied).
Another benefit: they are surprisingly versatile, and will step up your game for a ton of other tasty meals. Try them as the base for an egg sandwich for breakfast, pile them up with cold cuts for lunch, cut them up for a hummus dip snack – we even used them as buns for burgers and they were amazing.
These Pretzel Bagels have a permanent spot on our grocery list, and we’re very happy to have discovered them. Hope you all are as well. Enjoy!
