In middle school, pastry chef Claire Saffitz basically subsisted on an all-Bagel Bite diet. But will she like them as an adult or is the magic gone? As Alex Delany puts it, they're not good, but you still want more. Join Claire in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of her childhood go-to, Bagel Bites.

  • Don't ever "drain" your can of whole peeled tomatoes. The puree is in there for a reason. It's used to balance the brix and provide a consistent product can-to-can as the tomatoes themselves have whatever natural variation due to season, farm, etc. If you need to cook down the moisture content for longer, that's actually a good thing as the flavors will develop more. Don't discard the puree!

  • I once chipped my tooth on a bagel bite so badly that it led to borderline irreparable damage. I didn’t get it dealt with for over a year and a horrible cavity developed. There’s a filling in my front tooth now, and I can’t eat an apple ever again without cutting it or the filling will come out. I don’t like bagel bites anymore.

  • Bagel Bites huh...? My favorite part of this video is how few minorities there are. I always notice the black girl that washes dishes. Are there any black editors? Does Adam Rapo still like dressing up in brown face? :) Please pay your minority staff fair wages. Do it. DO IT!
