They may not be the cutest things you have ever seen, but my first attempt at bagel making was a success!
I followed the simple recipe by Sophisticated Gourmet. As a child I was all about the sweet bagels, like blueberry. But as an adult I like my these round carbs with a bit more kick. I really love a bagel that’s so savory you are pretty sure your breath will stink for the next month. Yep, that’s my style. Everything bagel, garlic bagel, bring it on.
I altered this recipe by adding a tablespoon of diced sun dried tomatoes (from a jar with oil) and 1/4 cup of feta cheese. It adds a simple layer without getting too crazy.
That’s what the toppings are for. I layered these bagels with super garlic-y hummus (no kisses after a bite of this), kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes and cucumber. Oh, and more feta cheese!
Seriously, homemade bagels are super easy to make. Do it. Impress your next house guests in the morning.
