Your fresh bagel experience doesn't have to end when you leave our shop! Here are a few Bagels & Bites tips for keeping your bagels delicious on the ride home, and out of storage:
To Store Bagels Overnight
Leave bagels in a plastic bag at room temperature. Never leave the plastic bag of bagels in the direct sunlight (or a hot car) because they will get soggy. A paper bag would be better in such an environment.
To Store Bagels for 2 to 3 Days:
Refrigerate in a plastic bag or a sealed container.
Never place hot or warm bagels in a plastic bag; they will get soggy. Crowding warm bagels will crush them.
Our 3 Top Ways to Warm Your Bagels Right
- Sprinkle bagels with water and wrap in foil or a dampened paper bag. Then place in the oven preheated to 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Dip bagels in water, shake off, then heat uncovered for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Heat bagels straight from the refrigerator or freezer in their plastic bag in the microwave oven. Set the oven on medium and warm for 30 seconds, longer if frozen. Bear in mind that the longer you heat it the "softer" it will get. If you heat it too long it will lose its outer shell.
