Einstein Bros. Adds Baked Mac and Cheese Bagels to Its Menu
You might be tempted to think that the humble bagel is already a perfect food, one that cannot be improved. It might be time to revise that assumption.
Thrillist brings our attention to Einstein Bros. Bagels, which is now combining two of our favorite carb-filled comforts: bagels and mac and cheese. The chain’s new mac and cheese bagel features Annie’s organic cheddar macaroni and cheese baked directly into the dough. It’s even more cheesy than you might imagine: the potato bagel features the Annie’s mac and cheese, six more melted cheeses, and a slice of cheddar to top it off. And that’s before you order cream cheese.
The company is also rolling out sandwiches that feature the mac and cheese bagel, including bacon-and-egg and ham-and-swiss varieties—both of which involve more cheese.
Einstein Bros. already embraces the idea of the cheesy bagel wholeheartedly. In addition to the typical Asiago cheese bagel, they sell five other cheese-layered bagels, including a cheesy hash brown bagel. Adding macaroni just seems like a natural step.
