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.

And it was sooo good.  2 slices of bacon, lots of mushrooms, toast with vegemite, some scrambled eggs with cheese and green onion and one over easy egg with the yolk broken so it oozed onto the toast (the way I like it). I couldn’t decide on which way to have the eggs so did both just to see if I could.  #2019pad #cooking #breakfastfordinner #eggs #scrambledeggs #eggsovereasy #mushrooms #toastwithvegemite

This week I made a Thai curry with asian veggies and skipped the pasta in favour of trying a wild rice mix I found - the first I’ve seen in Australia.  It was brown rice, wild rice and a red rice I’ve never heard of before.  Very nice!  #cookingforone #cooking #2019pad #prawns #thaicurry #wildrice

This was an avocado prawn ‘salad’ that I made to go inside a couple of nice rolls that I had.  It turned out fantastic.  #2019pad #cooking  #cookingforone #sundaytea #prawns #avocado

I added the last potatoes in the house, a few of my frozen carrot sticks and a cut up sausage to augment the meat side of things.  As the potatoes were low carb (Charisma), I knew I had to have something with some carbs so I opted for plain buttered noodles. YUM.  Today I turned what was left of the soup into a stew for my lunch.  #cookingforone #2019pad #cooking

Although, even by my standards this was probably a bit more crunchy than I’d intended. Delicious though.  The carrots were some of the ones that I snap froze earlier.  #whatsfordinner #tunanoodlecasserole #2019pad #cooking  #cookingforone #comfortfood
