If you want to start your Fourth with a patriotic breakfast, head to Omaha locations of Brueggers Bagels, where they'll be baking up red, white and blue rounds to benefit American troops.
Bruegger's will sell bundles of 13 of the colorful bagels today and tomorrow.
The annual tradition started in 2001, and sales of the bundles benefit Homes for our Troops, a nonprofit organization that helps severely injured servicemen and women and their families regain independence through the building of handicapped-accessible housing.
The patriotic bagel bundles come with two tubs of cream cheese, and the colored bagels are plain flavor. They'll be available at all Omaha locations while supplies last.
Brueggers has three locations: 4015 Dodge St., 228 N. 114th St. and 12989 W. Center Rd. The Dodge Street and Center Street locations are open on July 4 until 4 p.m., and the 114th St. location is open on the 4th until 3:30 p.m.
