  • Stale Bagel/Bread
  • warm water


  • Preheat oven to300°F.
  • Sprinkle enough water using your hand on the bagel but don’t over soak or drench it. For French bread or any loaf that is stale, run it under water quickly.
  • Please the bagel or the loaf if bread in aluminum foil and wrap. 
  • Please sit in the oven for about 10 minutes. 
  • Remove the foil and place the bread back in the oven to crisp the outer layer of the bread



Tips For Perfect Results
  1. Try to thaw your frozen bagels at room temperature overnight if you are looking for a grab-and-go breakfast the next day.
  2. Don't drench your bagel in water! A few drops will do the trick and get your bagel ready for the oven.
  3. If your bagel is green or fuzzy, it is time to throw it away. Mold can develop on the surface or beyond the surface of the bagel, so it is best to keep an eye out for those green monsters!
