About the Uprising


I have a confession.  I didn’t eat my first bagel until I was 12, and I did it all wrong:  grocery store bagel, toasted, with peanut butter, in Denver.  But it was awesome, and I was hooked.

After leaving Denver I experienced bagel utopia for about 10 years in New York City, and then I moved to Del Ray, a neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.  The local bagels were acceptable, but they didn’t live up to the real thing.  So I set out to fill the void.  Over time and with feedback from carb-loving family and friends, I came up with a recipe that does a pretty good job.  (And, because I knew you’d ask: No.  The secret is not the water.)

I use only five ingredients: flour, yeast, salt, malt, and brown sugar.  Like traditional bagels, Bagel Uprising bagels aren’t huge: no 800-calorie monsters the size of a hubcap.  And no fancy flavors, either.  Just the classics:

Everything, Sesame, Poppy, Salt & Plain.

(And cinnamon which, while tasty, is a bit of a moral lapse.)


Bagel Uprising launched at the Four Mile Run Farmers and Artisans Market in September 2015 and opened its permanent outpost at 2307A Mt. Vernon Avenue, Alexandria in September 2019.
