The Unique Triple-Cut Technique Ina Garten Uses For Bagels
In her decades-old smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel tutorial, Ina Garten has drawn attention for the way she horizontally cuts her bread into thirds — not halves.
Garten says that cutting into thirds allows you to assemble a much smaller sandwich that feels easier to bite by turning two bagels into six sandwiches.
She keeps her recipe pretty traditional from there, using dill, smoked salmon, and a hefty amount of cream cheese for the filling.
