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.

11Aug20  I had chicken burgers. I did not have burger buns, but I had hot dog buns. So I used one, cut it in half and job done.  These were good. I was hoping that by limiting to one hot dog bun it’d keep my glucose levels down but no, that wasn’t the case. I blame the breading on the burgers. Yeah, that was it.  #cooking  #cookingforone #muchlatergram #rowing #darkhorserowing  #homegymlife #keepmoving #2020pad #chickenburgers #hotdogbuns
10Aug20  This lasagna looked great until I let it cook a bit too long and the edges took on a burnt look. It was fine and even the burnt parts tasted fine. I was really disappointed when I first saw it finished - until I had some and realised it was all ok after all.  #cookingforone #cooking #2020pad #lasagna #lookscanbedeceiving
27July20  I made myself the cutest little ham.  I took a photo of it to show how small it was (barely 1kg) and used a coffee cup (yes, my extra special Rowing mug) for size comparison.  I still ended up with about 5 meals from this small ham.  One the night I made it, some leftovers with baked beans the next day and a few packets of sliced ham steaks in the freezer for future meals.  #rowing #darkhorserowing #cooking #cookingforone #ham #catch #drive #release #recover
18Aug20  I made barbacoa beef in the slow cooker and made soft tacos with some of it for for my dinner. YUM!  #2020pad  #cookingforone #cooking #muchlatergram #barbacoa #softtacos #tacos
25July20  The start of a very nice meal.  Some white wine, a packet of smoked salmon, crumbly blue cheese, onions and garlic…  With pasta and some veg.  It all started because the cheese was supposed to be creamy and for using on crispbread. Instead I had to figure out something to cook with it.  If it were summer, a salad would have been the answer.  #cookingforone #cooking #crumblycheese #bluecheese #whitewine #smokedsalmon #garlic #onion
02Aug20  Sunday dinner - a nice warm bowl of ramen soup with prawns. The soup base and noodles were from a kit this time. I just added prawns instead of chicken, because it’s Sunday and that’s prawn day in my house.  #2020pad #sundayprawns  #cookingforone #cooking #muchlatergram
