@hawkeye10,
I experimented on butter on both sides of my bread awhile back when making grilled cheese sandwiches. Not worth the effort.

If the butter is not inside the sandwich, do you put it on the outside? <truly puzzled by the question>

How do you make grilled cheese sandwiches? Dry and sans butter?

Butter goes on the outside of the bread.

If you're ordering a toasted bagel with cream cheese, you specify single or double-toasted (most people request double-toasted) and you get about 3 ounces of cream cheese spread on - I usually have to take some off because it's too much cream cheese. You would have to specify 'no butter' , or they would butter the bagel before putting the cream cheese on.



Bruegger's provides the bagels to my favourite spot

they really do look like this when you unwrap them

and on another note - I prefer open-face melted cheese sandwiches to grilled cheese - no butter for those

the new way is to spray the bread with something like Pam cooking spray so that you can get a little grill effect but cut out 90% of the calories of the traditional method. Last year I was at a restaurant and ordered a Ruben, they flat out refused to butter grill it when I complained about their cooking spray method. It sucked.

One of my waitresses is from Philly, I told her that I but both butter and cream cheese on my bagel. She accused me of bagel abuse, no butter ever she says.

yeah, I'm on the hold the butter side when it comes to bagels and cream cheese

I think it's very regional. Some places have bagels with fruit in them. Those are not bagels as far as I'm concerned. They're some kind of bread product but not bagels. I accept plain/sesame/onion/poppy seed as bagel options. That's it.

No one would consider putting it on here, just as no one would consider putting salad dressing on the salad, it must go on the side. There are way too many prissy people trying to cut another 5 calories out of their meal. I am a bit of an outlier for automatically putting mayo on a sandwich.

I think the 10z cream cheese PC pack was intended to be for one side of the bagal only, thus the entire bagel would be 2oz which sounds about right, but just try to get a second pack around here .

" I would like more cream cheese please" , " we gave you your cream cheese", "I would like more" " Shocked", " well, I suppose you could pay to get another one"

@hawkeye10,
Actually, according to SparkPeople, 1 tablespoon (and that's not a lot) of Ranch dressing is 60 calories. Of course it's possible to look up others but it's not 5 calories unless it's diet something or other. A tablespoon of butter is 102 calories.

When you eat 1800 calories/day, so your meals average to around 500 or so with a 300 calorie snack, a 100 calorie slab of butter that you can't even really taste looms very, very large.

I do know what you mean about it kind of disappearing, but I think that's because more people are asking for dry bread or toast so it's just easier to mainly make it without. I was with ehBeth for a while there, scratching my head and wondering what you meant by inner versus outer. Smile

Mustard goes with ham and cheese. Cream cheese OR butter goes with a bagel. In my opinion, of course.

The above might just be a NYC thing? Or, a hold over from NYC once having a large secular Jewish population (25% of NYC in 1950). So, even though ham was not a Jewish thing, the Jewish deli made a pastrami on club with only mustard. And, a bagel was just a Jewish NYC thing that other New Yorkers enjoyed early on. It was marketed outside the metro NYC area (or other urban areas with a Jewish population, i.e. Philly) possibly around the '70's or '80's?

Dont get me started on the subject of what gets called a bagel. We have exactly one "bagel" shop in this area of 250,000, and they dont even serve real bagels. The prefab ones in the grocery stores tend to be even worse. None of the bakeries around here even attempt a bagel to the best of my knowledge.

As a long time bagel lover this makes me sad.

I was reading that NYC places are bitching that their health department increasingly will not allow them to make bagels correctly. It is a pretty good bet that the health department here is a big part of why I cant get a bagel.



I also cant get a decent pizza, even with about 50 places doing "pizza"....another thing that pisses me off!
