Meat Bagels

Meat Bagels

I’m crazy.  I invented meat bagels!  What is a meat bagel?  This is my definition of a meat bagel: A meat bagel is meat formed into a bagel shape and consumed like a bagel.  It’s the perfect paleo bagel! I modeled the flavour for meat bagels after cabbage rolls.  Cabbage rolls are delicious and contain…
