Homemade Bagels

This is my first try at making bagels. We have lox, cream cheese, capers and heirloom tomatoes in the kitchen and dill in the garden so I really really wanted one. I considered ordering some from NYC then remembered I had bookmarked this recipe from Food & Wine a while back.


I had to plan a day in advance because one of the ingredients needs to sit in the fridge overnight. I’ve run out of bread flour so used all purpose. They took 3 hours start to finish but most of that time was spent on the dough rising.

Good on you! I made bagels once, it’s a lot of work!

You can order gluten online, add it to all purpose flour to get bread flour. It’s the extra protein from the gluten that makes bread flour strong.

Great idea, thanks!

Amazing. These look like the real deal. How did they compare?

I had no idea you could order bagels from NYC!

Thanks! They aren’t as good as what I remember from NYC but they are delicious and didn’t cost a fortune. You can order the real thing from Goldbelly and probably lots of other places.

Excellent. I’ll be over later for bagels and lox. You can just throw one into my car window to maintain social distancing. :laughing: :bagel: :heart:

I’ve read that the water in NYC has something to do with the uniquely amazing bagels there. :wink:

I bet yours were fantastic, especially with all those fixins!
