      I normally never complete a review without first making the recipe. I got so excited when I saw this recipe that I just had to comment. I used to find these occasionally at supermarkets in the area, but they haven't carried bialys in a long while. Not only are bialys great on their own but the make THE BEST breakfast sandwich (slice bialys in half, add egg sunny-side up or over easy, making the yolk break, top with slice of American cheese or other cheese of your choice, bake or toast until cheese melts, salt & pepper, cover w/ other bialy halve). Boy do I miss these. I'm making these very soon. Thx Dienia B. for posting a classic.

      Very yummy! I made some with the onion mixture and some with a garlic olive oil combination. Perhaps a little too much garlic. *lol* These are my very first bialys ever and I must say, they won't be my last. Thanks for sharing, Dienia!
