Opposites: Black and white bagel


Black and white bagel

One of the best things about weekly travel to Melbourne is that I can keep up a regular supply of 5 and Dime bagels for the household. Our favourite is the jalapeno cheese, with jalapenos baked into the bagel and crusty cheese outside. But we do also like to mix it up a little – case in point our latest creation, the black and white bagel.

In one corner is the dark pumpernickel bagel and in the opposite corner is the white bagel covered with generous lashings of roasted onion. Sandwiched in the middle is some corned silverside, cheddar cheese, a fried egg and some Sriracha (because why not?). Ladies and gentlemen, we give you our take on the classic Reuben.

So which side won? My favourite was the pumpernickel – the classic flavour combination of rye and cured meat just can’t be beat.

Incidentally, did you know pumpernickel is a German word that translates to farting devil? #randomtriviaoftheday

    A sandwich worthy to be eaten and have its picture taken!
