I'm so proud and willing to tell everyone…
I would never have even thought about making them, who does? But I came across an article with a recipe for making your own bagels. It sounded fun to try so I whipped up a batch; and they were so amazing I made a second batch the next day.
I just discovered that pretty much nothing beats a fresh bagel still warm from the oven and proceeded to eat three from that first batch. My second batch was even just about as lovely as the picture below.
I'm posting a link to the recipe so you too can make your very own homemade bagels.
