Pre-sliced bagels: don't believe 'em.
It's really a factory "starter cut" for one - where steaknife serration
is mandatory intervention to the hole. And then it's always ¾ + ¼ never
½ + ½ anyway.
Always jamming Laurel & Hearty into the
toaster next to each other side by side and fattie won't popup on his
own when done until you force him. Mmmmm. Just what I wanted - the
thickest bread in the house half toasted with a well done crisp cracker
slathered in cream cheese. Yum.
