What’s A Bialy?

Named after Bialystok Poland, the bialy is the perfect combination between a bagel and an English muffin. This round, flat baked good has a complex texture. The top has a crunchy crust, and the bottom is heavier with a nice chew. In the center, freshly ground sweet Spanish onions marry the textures into a layered experience. Bell’s Brooklyn Bagels carries on the tradition of hand pulling the bialys into shape and schmearing the onions into the center. Creating a quality bialy takes skill to maintain our family’s standards. Our bialys keep the legacies of Bialystok and Marty Bell alive today.
You can enjoy our Bell’s Brooklyn Bagels’ bialys with butter, cream cheese, eggs, or anything that makes your perfect sandwich. You can eat our bialys whole or sliced, separate or together, and anyway you like your bagels too. Our bialys are versatile and a lower calorie, low fat option for any time of day.
Bell’s Brooklyn Bagels now has put our original twist on the traditional bialy. We created the bialy roll which is our traditional bialy dough puffed up instead of pulled. The effect creates a pocket perfect for sandwiches or your favorite filling. The bialy roll can be made with a variety of toppings. Currently, our most popular is the Everything Bialy Roll. We also crafted the jalapeño bialy marrying our savory bialys with a spicy flair. The jalapeño bialy is the perfect item for people who love traditional bialys and want a kick of spice. This is how we are bringing our bialy into the modern world. The bialy roll and the jalapeño bialy expand the versatility and flavor profile of our product for today’s consumers.
