1963: Horatio Magellan Crunch is promoted to the rank of Cap’n.
1967: the first frosted Pop-Tart is born.
And now, in the 2,013th year of our breakfast lord, pasta just possibly found a way to the morning table. By way of everything bagels.
Meet Everything Bagel Fusilli, essentially the compositional makeup of a Brooklyn-style everything bagel in fusilli pasta form, available online now.
Okay, we get that this is a pretty confusing food concept, so we’ll take it slow. First, this stuff hails from Brooklyn. There, a pasta shop decided to take organic semolina flour and all the makings of a New York everything bagel (poppy and sesame seeds, onion, garlic, salt) and fuse the two. The result: everything bagel fusilli.
So if you’re intrigued, you’ll buy a bag or two. Next, you’ll boil it up. Put a little marinara on it. Have it for dinner.
Then again, you may just want to embrace the bagel properties of this pasta. You know: cook up a steaming bowl of the stuff in the AM and get all the joys associated with carbo-loading and morning bageling. Add a side of sliced red onion, capers, maybe even some lox.
This may open the door for gnocchi cereal down the road.
