Egg White and Cheese Bagel Sandwich from Times Square Hot Bagels

Egg White and Cheese Bagel Sandwich from Times Square Bagels
After the toasting debacle at Lenny's I've been on the lookout for other bagel breakfast options in midtown. Thanks to some suggestions from the Midtown Lunch crew, I decided to try out Times Square Hot Bagels. This time not for a bagel and cream cheese, but for an egg and cheese on a bagel...

For $3.50 you can get either an two eggs and cheese on a bagel or as I overheard another customer order, egg whites and cheddar on a bagel. Not bad. Most places charge you extra when you want egg whites. I've tried the egg whites with both "cheese"--of the orange deli sliced variety--and cheddar and while I generally prefer cheddar I must admit that the deli cheese gets meltier and makes for a really good gooey cheesy breakfast sandwich.

The whole wheat bagels are chewy and toothsome. I haven't been there yet when they've been fresh out. Perhaps if I got there earlier in the morning...

In any event, for $3.50, it's a sizeable hot breakfast that will keep you going and no toasting surcharge.

Maybe you should try Daniel's Bagels, I posted about this bagel bakery
But I'm a frenchy foodista in NY, so I'm not a specialist...

Brooklyn Bagel (despite the name, located on 25th & 8th) has the best bagels I've ever tasted, with a zillion cream cheese options.

ps what sort of camera do you use? your pics are great

@the savvy soybean: Thanks for the rec. I'll have to check them out sometime.

I use a now oldish Sony Cybershot DSC-H5. It's not a digital SLR but it likes to think that it is. :)
