I decided to try my hand at making homemade bagels. I love bagels and only store bought is to be had in these parts. Store bought is rarely worth eating. So I attempted it myself. I used the bread maker to make the dough. Very simple process. I then shaped and rose one more time for 10 minutes. The cute little bagels then went into a pan of boiling sugar water for three minutes, turning half way through.
They I egg washed them and into the oven they went. Twenty five minutes later we had homemade bagels. For my butt to grow. That's what bagels do for me.
I didn't have the appropriate toppings for bagel masterpieces but plain is usually just as good. I will seriously have to figure out how on earth the bagel making pros make such perfectly round bagels. Mine were not but they eat just the same. I admit, this is a very simple way to make bagels but my whole family, mom included, loved them. I will rate them a hit and plan to make more. The yogurt wheat bread attempt that followed did not go nearly as well and needless to say, Doyle made sandwiches for work on bagels this morning. Dual purpose too, you see?
