Bagels are not something you just buy at the bakery, you can actually make them at home. An intersting fact about bagels is that they are boiled before they are baked. This helps them develop and keep their shape in the oven. My favorite way to eat bagels is with cream cheese, cucumbers, and smoked salmon but you can can top them with whatever you like.
