Bagel Bread

Question

Is it possible to use a bagel for “lechem mishneh” on Shabbos?
On one hand this is a complete baked item, but on the hand, its shape makes it appear as if it is not complete.

  1. Yes, there is no problem using a bagel for “lechem mishneh” (the two breads to make the blessing on and to eat from on Shabbos). The reason: A bagel is considered a whole and complete loaf since it is baked on all sides.
