It's been requested that I share how I make bagels! Gladly! It's really easy. Go here and follow the directions. This is the recipe I use. Now, I should say that I just pop all the ingredients into my bread machine, set it to "dough" cycle and let it do all the hard work but I have done it the old fashion way and it's still pretty simple. So, take an afternoon and try it. They are WAY better than store bought. You won't be disappointed. I like to sprinkle mine with cinnamon/sugar, sesame seeds, or just leave them plain. Yum! Enjoy!
