Do you prefer a cold photo?
Or a warm photo?
Bagels, yup I woke up this morning aching to make bagels. What does that feel like you wonder, well it is a pain like no other and its a pain that started around 6:00 AM. It would be so easy for me to go to any number of premiere bagel shops scattered all over this City and pick up some of the best bagels in the nation but nooooo, I have to make my own. The part I like about making my own anything is my 'everything' bagel will have the 'everything' that I want on it, sechezuan peppercorns, sea salt and parmesean. Recipe? what recipe. I read so many recipes so often that I am a cookbook. I altered a pizza dough recipe and a bread recipe and incorporated it with some bagel know how to come up with these bad boys. The secret is in the boiling water and if I told you what it was it wouldnt be a secret anymore.
Rising in the morning sun.
Boiling in the magic cauldron.
Fresh and hot from the oven. Ready for some cream cheese or butter or both.
