Shamrock Bagel Food Porn For St. Patrick’s Day

With St. Patrick’s Day on Friday, it’s time to reflect on the similarities between the Irish and Jews. Both like to drink, both have an inordinate dedication to family and both have nagging mothers asking when we will give them a grandchild. Something else that binds our two cultures is the St. Patrick’s Day bagel, colloquially known as a green or shamrock bagel. Its emerald hue often looks more like putrid refuse than fresh verdure — the bagels have a neon brightness that resembles the greenery in nuclear wastelands. That said, green bagels are a fun way to show your appreciation for the Irish while biting into a piece of Jewish culture. Here, for your daily dose of food porn, are a bunch of beautiful shamrock bagels.

Go classic and super Jew-tastic with some lox and shmear, sprouts, tomato, red onion and capers.

To make the shamrock bagel truly breakfast-worthy, fill it with sausage, egg and cheese for a fun, treyf take on the breakfast sandwich.

Let the green bagel shine with minimal accoutrements — a simple shmear of cream cheese is all you need.

To go full-on Lucky Charms, dip your bagel in Fruity Pebbles — yes, Fruity Pebbles — and add birthday cake cream cheese.

The Irish and Jews share a love of corn beef, so double-down on the Irish-Jewish connection and make a bagel breakfast sandwich slathered with spicy mayo, topped with corn beef, sautéed pickles and lettuce, melded together with melted cheddar cheese. (Trey!)

To make the green bagel audaciously treyf, add crispy bacon, egg and melted cheese.

From the inventor of the rainbow bagel, The Bagel Store in Brooklyn has a green-swirl version that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.
