Homemade Bagels

Gaelyne's BagelsAfter I’d been in Australia for awhile, I realised that bagels were hard to find. They’re a little more common now, but finding this recipe a few years ago was a real pleasure. These turn out a little smaller than ‘normal’ bagels, but they are absolutely delicious and disappear quickly!

Very yummy home made bagels.
Ingredients
  • 1 C Water warm - 110f
  • 1½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar (haven't tried w/ Splenda)
  • 3 C Plain Flour
  • 2¼ teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 3 quarts Water boiling
  • 3 tablespoons Sugar
Instructions
  1. Place warm water, salt, sugar, flour and yeast in the bread machine pan according to the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough setting.
  2. (Note – I really like Onion Bagels so I usually add ¼ Cup dried Onion to the breadmaker mix).
  3. When dough cycle is complete, let dough rest on a lightly floured surface.
  4. Meanwhile, bring 3 quarts water to boil in a large pot. Stir in 3 tablespoons of sugar.
  5. Cut dough into 9 equal pieces and roll each piece into a small ball. Flatten balls, poke a hole in the middle of each with your thumb. Twirl the dough on your finger or thumb to enlarge the hole and even out the dough around the hole. Cover bagels with a clean cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Carefully transfer bagels to boiling water. Boil for 1 minute, turning over half way through. Drain briefly on a clean paper towel. Move boiled bagels to a baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal.
  7. Glaze tops with egg white and sprinkle with your favourite choice of topping (poppy seeds, sesame seeds, etc).
  8. Bake in a preheated 375f (190c) oven for 20-25 minutes until well browned.

09Nov20  Another munchy lunch with cucumber, cos lettuce and cherry tomatoes.  I had a stack of the lettuce leaves with a thin slice of ham in each as well.  It wasn’t quite a wrap, but it was tasty.  #2020pad #cookingforone #muchlatergram #cooking #lunchmunchies #healthylunch
08Nov20  This is turning into a regular item here on Sundays .  Macaroni and Cheese with Prawns and Old Bay Seasoning. The combo is just so… excellent.  I had plenty of of the macaroni cheese leftover for the next day’s lunch but those prawns … they were all mine!  #2020pad #sundayprawns  #cookingforone #muchlatergram #cooking
21Sep20  Quick and easy pasta and veg made with @vettapasta’s new Ready Pasta Fibre Penne.  I wanted to have some pasta for dinner but was having leftovers so didn’t feel like cooking. I had a packet of the Ready Pasta so made that, microwaved my green beans and then added parmesan and garlic butter to give it some WOW.  Perfect dish for one person and all done in under 5 minutes.  It went well with my leftovers and I had my veggies too.  The pasta is a winner. It tastes exactly like I’d made it myself, and saved me a heap of time too.  #2020pad  #cookingforone #cooking #easypastaandveg
01Oct20 Breakfast for dinner!  Two (very thin) buckwheat waffles, two eggs and bacon.  People who make meals like this on a regular basis amaze me - it’s a lot of juggling things and time.  But worth it!  Delicious.  #2020pad  #cookingforone #cooking #latergram #brekkiefordinner #breakfastfordinner #eggsbaconwaffles
