We’re all about Irish-inspired food and wine this St. Patrick’s Day weekend! I’ve found a little ‘pot of gold’ in Alamo Heights … and it’s full of bagels!
Boss Wood Fired Bagels & Coffee in Alamo Heights is gaining notoriety for its bagels even New York City bagel fans will love. Their plain bagels are perfectly delicious, but you can get out of your bagel ‘comfort zone’ with 18 different varieties of bagels. We’re fans of the Slammin Salmon bagel (below) with house-cured smoked salmon on a sesame bagel with shaved red onion, capers, sliced tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs and lemon dill schmear.
We’re also loving their Country Ham Hangover Cure with slow-roasted ham on their applewood smoked bacon and red onion bagel, with loaded baked potato schmear, fried egg and cheddar cheese. Ready for lunch? The Dirty Texan features house-smoked trout on a jalapeño bagel with shaved red onions, arugula, hard-boiled egg and roasted poblano schmear.
On St. Patrick’s Day, they featured their bagel cinnamon roll in a festive green and gold bagel (below)! Fun fact: ‘Boss’ stands for ‘Bagels on Southern Soil,’ which alludes to Boss Bagels’ pride for making delicious ‘rolls with holes’ that are just plain delicious right here in Texas.
Because it’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend, I’m showing off a fabulous locally made craft beer. The Lone Pint Brewery Yellow Rose is a ‘SMaSH,’ or Single Malt and Single Hop IPA and it tastes delicious with any bagel — or anything else you might be eating this St. Patrick’s Day!
I never forget the wine! Check out my new wines finds for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day right here. You can find all of these at H-E-B.
