We made three different kinds. Onion, Garlic, Rosemary ones then cheese ones then cinnamon sugar with currant ones and just yummy plain ones.
Then you get to bake them! It takes about 30 to 35 minutes.
Are they going to actually taste good though? Let's see.......
Perfect!!! The texture is just right. You simply must try them! It is much much easier than you might think.
Here's the recipe:
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3 1/2 to 4 cups white flour
4 tsp. yeast
1 1/2 cup very warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbs salt
1 Tbs sugar
Mix yeast , whole wheat flour, water, 1/4 cup sugar and salt. Mix together well 30 sec on low then 3 min on high and let sit for 15 min. Stir in white flour and knead until smooth. Let sit for 20 min.
Take large pot fill with water and add the 1 Tbs sugar, place on high and come to a boil. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Shape dough into about 12 balls then make hole in middle . Form bagel shape. Place about 6 bagels in the pot of boiling water. They will sink first then float to the top. Cook for 7 min. Make sure you turn over half way through. Take out with slotted spoon.
Then place bagels on cookie sheet and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. ENJOY! Now we added things to our dough and you can top them with things like seeds etc.. prior to baking in the oven.
One tip that we learned: If doing both savory and sweet bagels it is a good idea to have two different pots of boiling water. Our currant ones have a hint of onion flavor. LOL
Makes about 12 to 14 depending on how big you shape the dough.
