If you love Flamin Hot Cheetos, enjoy eating bagels and live in the Buffalo area of New York, you have a ten year old to thank. A young girl standing outside the BreadHive Co-Operative Bakery suggested putting the snack on top of a bagel to the bakery's owners. Allison Ewing took her up on her suggestion, creating the first Flamin Hot Bagels.
The spicy bread is made by crushing up a bag of the raucously red Flamin Hot Cheetos and dipping ready-to-bake bagels in them. This replaces BreadHive's standard toppings like organic garlic. The cheesy crumbs will stay crispy for a while, and if the texture needs to be adjusted they can become crisp again by reheating.
