No shmear. Untoasted. Not even butter. No lox or cream cheese. And it is still a perfect breakfast. Why? How did we get there?
Tradition! Funny stuff we accept and get used to. Boiled bread, for crying out loud. Somehow this is good? To a few million New Yorkers, yes. Taste buds are herd animals, lol.
Nah, toasted with cream cheese and sesame seed top.
