How do you warm up frozen bagels?
First time poster on this forum, although I do read many of the forums and occasionally post on a few.
I've come to the conclusion that NY-style bagels simply do not exist more than one state away from NY. However, the bagels from Costco are reasonably okay, but we can't eat them all in a few days so we end up freezing them for later.
I have yet to figure out a way to warm up the frozen bagels so that they at least taste something close to their pre-frozen condition. I have tried all combinations of times with a microwave and/or toaster oven, but haven't hit a good solution yet. We prefer them not-overly-chewy, as they are prior to freezing. However, my attempts at warming up the frozen ones all end up as very-very-chewy, too much so for our preferences.
Any recommendations/suggestions? TIA!
