Sonshine’s Bagels

Well I tried something I have been wanting to try off and on for a while now. Bagels!


We had extra cream cheese from Christmas we hadn’t used. A friend posted a recipe for me to try as the one I originally wanted to do I was missing an important ingredient, malt powder. These turned out great but I got irritated while I was mixing it.

Here is a picture I took of them after baking. I sprinkled them with a tiny bit of sea salt, some with rosemary, 2 of them with minced dry onion. About 5 of them I added a bit of cinnamon, sugar and a sprinkle of green for Joe. He likes “breakfast items” to be sweeter.

I doubled the recipe and my kitchen aid started acting up. This meant I would have to finish kneading it by hand! Arrggghhhh!!! Well Joey was home so I borrowed a pair of strong hands. lol He did a great job on the dough. 😉


Here is a picture of them snuggling in the boiling water. We made 24 and it took about 3 turns in the water to get them all done. It was fun and they turned out really good! I think there is only 7 left and I need to go hide those!

Have you ever made bagels before?

    I have. I used the recipe from Tammy’s recipe site and cheated and used my bread machine.
    We loved them and would make them again.

    Yeah I like her recipes. It is not cheating using a bread machine. Cheating is buying them at the store! lol

    Next time I will try it with one batch and hope it is easier. I do NOT like kneading by hand.
