|A KosherEye Chat with Bechara Jaoudeh|
We are sharing excerpts from our chat with Bechara Jaoudeh, owner and creator of Bagel Spice.

What is your personal favorite recipe(s) for using each of the 3 varieties of Bagel Spice?
Potato Salad (Sea Salt Blend): I did not post this recipe to the site yet. We “demo-ed” it at the Fancy Food Show and people loved it. Boil the potatoes, dice them into half-inch cubes, and add extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and Bagel Spice. Mix and serve. I'm not a big fan of mayo and you won't miss it in this potato salad.
Eggs Over Easy (Zesty Jalapeno Blend): I love eggs over-easy for breakfast. I sprinkle Bagel Spice on the eggs right before I flip them. The heat releases and amplifies the flavors in Bagel Spice. Yummy!
We plan to suggest using it on challah and bread- does your family have a favorite family bread recipe? Please share...
What's in the Bagel Spice pipeline?
At Bagel Spice we attentively listen to our customer's feedback.* That's how the Jalapeno blend came about. Right now, we are getting a lot of requests for a sweet tasting blend. A handful of our customers suggested a blend with cinnamon and nutmeg, which we like a lot. This is still in the planning phase, but Bagel Spice will have a sweet blend by next fall.
*Do send your new sweet Bagel Spice flavor blend suggestions to KosherEye and we will forward them to Bechara at Bagel Spice.
