MultiChef XL Recipe: From After School Snack to Restaurant Trend

It seems like these days everywhere you turn, childhood food favorites are being re-imagined by restaurateurs and chefs. Classic snacks like pizza bagels are being served up in restaurants all over and here at Motion Technology Inc., we could not be more excited to help bring this after school treat to the foodservice masses with our MultiChef XL recipe!

MultiChef XL Pizza BagelAh yes, the pizza bagel, a frozen, prepackaged delight that kids in the nineties begged their parents to purchase. The perfect combination of cheese, sauce, and bagel…OK, almost the perfect combination. If you cooked them in the oven, they almost always got too hard or crispy, and if you cooked them solely in the microwave, you were left with a mostly mushy bagel. Thankfully, we have found a way to produce the perfect pizza bagel. Our MultiChef XL recipe combines fresh ingredients, with the use of MultiChef's unique cooking process of precision microwave and impingement air, to give our clients the upgraded walk down memory lane they needed.

 With just a few simple steps the MultiChef XL serves up a picturesque pizza bagel in less than two minutes! Our high speed oven makes it easy for business owners to provide consumers (especially millennials) with school day fare that’s leading the food trend race. Pizza bagels, along with other childhood favorites are popping up in restaurants across the US. In New York alone you can find pizza bagels being served at a number of locations like Tompkins's Square Bagels or Bagel Bob's, and what’s better than a New York bagel? Oh yeah, a New York bagel topped with sauce and cheese, and toasted to perfection! 

Now, don’t just take our word for it, test out our easy MultiChef XL recipe today, and watch the millennials file in!PizzaBagel.png2
