Flagel (Flat Bagel, or Flat)
The "flagel" (FLAY-gel) or "flat bagel" or "flat" appears to have been invented in New York City. You don't see them around much, but a few stores do have them.



http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0313/sietsema.php
In the beginning there was Tasty Bagel, founded in 1983 by two brothers from Bensonhurst. The next year they invented the big wheel bagel, a behemoth dough ring piled high with Italian cold cuts and butchered into 26 sandwiches. A decade later on the same spot the flagel was born—a flattened bagel liberally sprinkled with sesame seeds or other toppings. A recent road test confirms the appeal of the shape and taste, although it's the dickens to cut and goes stale at an accelerated rate.
