Homemade Bagels

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)
