I haven’t posted a recipe in awhile.
So I thought I’d post my yummy Water Bagel Recipe I got from my sister Sherri. I made them the other day and they are so delicious!
1 Pkg Dry Yeast
1 Cup warm Water
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1-1/2 Teaspoons Salt
2-3/4 Cup Flour
2 Quarts Water
For flavor you can add other ingredients.
I added 1/3 cup chopped onion and 1 teaspoon powdered garlic.
Here are directions and I’ll add some photos.
Dissolve yeast in 1 Cup warm water.
Stir in sugar, salt and 1-1/4 cups flour.
Beat until smooth. Stir in remaining flour.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and kneed until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes).
Place in greased bowl; turn dough greased side up. Cover and let rise in warm place until double (from 15-45 min depending on how warm of a spot you put it).
Dough is ready if an indentation remains when touched.
Punch down dough; divide into 8 equal parts.
Roll each into a rope at least 6-8 inches long; moisten the ends and form a ring.
Put all 8 formed bagels on a cookie sheet.
Make sure the ends that you joined are tight. As you will see some of mine were not and they started to unravel.
Let rise 20 minutes. I put mine covered with a towel back in the sun.
You can tell they are ready because they will puff up like the below bagel.
Heat 2 quarts of water to boiling in large kettle. Reduce heat; add 4 bagels at a time.
You can see where the bagel is starting to unravel because the ends were not closed tight.
I kind of like the swirl effect though.
The bagels will start to expand. Simmer 7 minutes, turning once.
Drain on a kitchen towel.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
They will smell so good!
And taste so delicious!
Enjoy them with cream cheese or toasted in the morning with a scrambled egg to make a breakfast sandwich. Yum!
