Homemade Everything Bagel

Woke up one morning craving bagels, so I made them. I was surprised to learn how easy and quick making bagels at home can be!

Ingredients:

  • 4 ¼ cups all-purpose flour **
  • 1.75 tsp rapid rising yeast (can use 2 packets of active dry yeast)
  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 3 tablespoon white sugar ( I used Monk Fruit sweetener)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Seasoning: Equal amounts– you can use anything you want to season
  • Garlic Powder
  • Basil leaves
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Taco seasoning

Directions:

  1. Combine the flour and yeast in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the water, 3 tablespoons sugar, and the salt. Combine with the flour and yeast
  3. Mix with hand for about 5 minutes or until the dough is stiff
  4. On a flat surface, knead the dough until smooth (~8-10 minutes)
  5. Cover the dough in a bowl with plastic wrap or a towel and let it rest for 15 minutes
  6. Cut the dough into 12 pieces and roll into smooth balls. Poke a hole in the center of the ball with your finger. I spun the dough on my finger to make the hole larger, but you could shape it with your hands as well
  7. Cover the 12 bagels on a plate and allow them to rise for 20 minutes
  8. In a pot, fill it with water and add the 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and mix. Allow the mixture to come to a boil
  9. Pre-heat oven to 375 F
  10. Add seasoning into a seperate bowl
  11. Prepare greased baking sheet with wax paper
  12. When the bagels are ready, place 4 bagels ( depending on your pot size) into the water and boil for about 30 seconds
  13. Drain the water when removing the bagels, season the bagel right after draining the water by placing it into the bowl with seasoning and then onto the sheet– Repeat this step for all the bagels
  14. Bake bagels for 25 to 30 minutes
  15. Enjoy bagels hot or cold, bon appetit!
