Yeah I know that is a picture of a single bagel! Well technically it is a “breakfast bagel” from the Old School Bagel Cafe in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The breakfast bagel is exactly what it sounds like, it is a bagel with either sausage or bacon, eggs, and American cheese. This one was made using an everything bagel, but you can have it in any bagel you want. Today I got it with a jalapeño bagel and last Sunday I got it on a chili bagel. I love these things. Matter of fact, I devoured one this morning (the one in the photo was consumed about a month ago), and I mean it didn’t stand a chance.
So, bagels! What makes those little doughy masterpieces so amazing! It must be the hole in the middle (that’s what she…)! Now I know that there is a rumor going around that New York bagels are the best. Well, they are pretty dang good! When I was in New York City I made a stop at a little place called Ess-A-Bagel! Yes, that bagel was great! I can’t recall exactly what I got but it seems like it was simply a bagel with cream cheese. Yeah, it pretty much proved that the New York bagel is the best.
Yet, let us not get too far ahead of ourselves in drawing these conclusions! The Old School Bagel Cafe has bagels that are just as good or at least come pretty dang close. Yes, yes, the breakfast bagel is a favorite of mine, but the bagels with cream cheese are simply TO DIE FOR!! I got the blueberry bagel with honey almond cream cheese and I ate that thing as hard as I eat things. Yeah that made a lot of sense. I know I just ate a bagel this morning but I’m already craving another.
Oh no!!! It’s 9:03 p.m. and I haven’t written my blog yet!! Omg!! So many people probably checked in to read this wonderful blog and didn’t see a new post! Just kidding, just kidding. Nobody has looked at my blog today. Well, at least that’s what the stats say. So, what’s getting the foodtrash verbiage this lovely Friday??
Street vendors! Yeah, that’s right. The great ol’ American street vendor. They’re great! Who doesn’t love street vendors?? I for one do! Nothing better than getting a wet sloppy hot dog from a greasy fellow at a food cart (disclaimer: not all food cart vendors are greasy, and not all are men).
Now I’m sure all of my wonderful readers are thinking “why this topic”. Well, I will tell you why! Last night I made a stop at a hot dog cart and got me a wet, meaty, wiener! Yeah, this one was the bomb! It goes by the name “The Dirty Curty”! Let me tell you, it makes you feel dirty! Well only if you spill all of the chili and cheese on you, which I did not do for once! So I guess I didn’t feel too dirty. Now that I mentioned the Chili and cheese I should probably inform you of what this dog was topped with – cream cheese, chili cheese, and shredded cheddar! So freaking good! If your mind isn’t telling you that then you need to get a refund on that junk you’ve been using for a brain! Anyways, it’s good.
Yeah, I love food vendors. I’ve eaten at taco trucks on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere Arkansas, and I’ve eaten an Italian sausage off the side of the street in New York. Both were amazing. No doubt about it. If you are thinking that food vendors serve trash for food, well you may be right. But this is foodtrash, so that works for me. Here is my weekly brain spill for you – if you see a food vendor and are feeling a little empty in the gut, then fill that gut with some street food goodness. No second thoughts. Eat up!
