Hubby's Homemade Bagels

A little dough making...


A little boiling...


A little baking...



Mmmm, homemade bagels! I think next time we'll try them with whole wheat flour, and maybe some blueberries... I don't think we'll ever go back to store bought!



Who says cooking can't be fun? :)

Oooh, I just love homemade bagels! My dad used to make them often for us when he wasn't quite as busy.

Homemade bagels are definitely in a class of their own! They're delicious with whole wheat flour, too, of course!

Cooking is VERY fun! Did Colin make these, or was it a joint effort?
They look yummy... you'll have to share the recipe with us!

I'll third the recipe request! This is something I've really been wanting to try lately, and it would be great to have a pre-tested recipe! :)

1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 1/4 cups warm milk (110 to 115 degrees F)
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg yolk
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the butter, sugar, salt and egg yolk; mix well. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Shape into 12 balls. Push thumb through centers to form a 1-in. hole. Place on a floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes; flatten. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Drop bagels, one at a time, into boiling water. When bagels float to the surface, remove with a slotted spoon and place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

Those look yummy! And I never knew that bagels were boiled before they were baked.
