Bagels

I am on a quest for the perfect homemade bagel.
For my first try I used my favorite white bread recipe and followed cooking directions I found on line.

The bagels looked pretty but came out too thin and didn't taste like a bagel.

For my second try I used a recipe on you tube. They came out big and pretty but the texture was wrong. It was a little too light and fluffy inside instead of thick and heavy like store bagels.

I plan to keep on trying. The kids and I love eating toasted bagels.

Don't forget to try them with the basic artisian dough

We also love bagels. I do hope you find a good recipe and post it. I have a friend who makes them but her recipe is pretty involved so I've never tried them. I'm afraid if I do the kids will love them and I'll feel obligated to make them often!

YUM! They look good regardless!

Your header picture is so pretty! The bagels look good. As soon as I can get the scanner to work, I'll send you the bagel recipe we have used for years.
