We love bagels at our house, my kids would eat them all day if they could. When I realized how easy, healthy and inexpensive making homemade bagels was, I was sold! When I mentioned a few weeks back that I was making bagels every week I received many questions on how to make bagels. Hopefully, this post will answer those questions. I figured the cost of making my own bagels and I came up with about $1.50 for thirteen. Compare that with the supermarket prices or Panera, and you can see that making your own is a great deal. Ingredients (this is a modified version of the recipe from the Bread Becker’s Recipe Collection)more
cup warm water
cups flower (you can use all white, half white/half wheat, or all whole wheat)
tsp. instant yeast
Combine water, honey, and salt. Add part of the flour, yeast and gluten, mix well. Continue to add flour until you have a slightly sticky dough, kneed for about 10 minutes.
