Hot Dish

I'll bet you've heard enough about bagels, already. Coming in on the coattails of the craze for coffee and bread, bagels are especially popular because each one only has about a hundred calories. That's without cream cheese of course, and without cream cheese, a bagel is just another hockey puck. Chesapeake Bagel Bakery offers bagels every day of the week, every which way--bagel breakfasts, bagel sandwiches, hot and cold, frosted bagels, sweet bagels, seasoned bagels. But the winner (weiner) on the menu--available for take-away, too--is the bagel dog, a hot dog wrapped in bagel dough.

Chesapeake Bagel Bakery, 5360 West Lovers Lane (in Inwood Village), 352-2945.
