A couple of weeks ago I got to help coordinate and attend another awesome Portland Bloggers’ Meet-Up. We always to try mix times, themes, styles of meet-up each time that we meet. This time we went for a speed networking style meet-up in the morning/early afternoon… due to the time of day we knew that we wanted to serve up some brunch items.

Brunch is one of my favorite meals and serving it up at a party is always a great choice because you can mix all types of favorite breakfast and lunch items, sweet and savory. We were thrilled with Bowery Bagels offered to bring in some of their delicious NY style bagels and schmears. Of course, planning the event, all I could think about was where we were going to place the table and how we were going to set it up to accommodate the needs of knives, spreads, toasters and all the fixings for a really great bagel spread.

Thankfully, Bowery Bagels did something that I would have never in a million years thought of (though, I sort of can’t believe I never did because it is so simple and smart) that made the entire brunch spread easy and beautiful. I mean really, there is no way to really make a bunch of plugged in toasters look super pretty unless you go out and get a bunch of coordinating toasters.

The simple fix that Bowery did to serve up the bagels? They pre-toasted and schmeared the bagels and cut them up into little perfect bites.

I would have been worried about soggy bagels, but their New York style bagel was perfect like this and the bagels lasted throughout the whole event and the leftovers even lasted in the fridge for a few days more of bagel goodness. In addition to creating the bagel bites with the cream cheese schmear, Bowery thought of the vegans or dairy-free attendees by also making a platter of bagel bites with a vegan non-soy cashew spread.

 

A big thank you goes out to Bowery Bagels for introducing the Portland Bloggers to their bagels and introducing this simple, but GREAT party tip into my life. This post is not sponsored, however, I am the owner of Portland Bloggers to which the bagels were donated for an event. All opinions are my own!

    I’ll be honest, I love bagels; especially when they are fresh from the bakery. I can’t believe I haven’t ever thought of using them for brunch! This is such a tasty and easy way to keep guests fed and still allow room for conversation. Don’t be offended, but I will definitely be stealing this idea from you, but my girlfriends will be very appreciative! Thank you for the interesting article!
