These pretzel bagels are the best of both worlds — deeply browned, salty pretzel exterior with a chewy, dense bagel interior.
Homemade Bagel Recipes
Learning how to make bagels is where my love affair with baking and bread making began. Once you realize how easy it is, you’ll never buy store bought ones again. My standard plain water bagel recipe takes less than 3 hours to make, including at least an hour of resting time. Here you’ll find that basic recipe, plus lots of variations on it — from rosemary olive oil to pumpkin bagels.
These rosemary olive oil bagels are just as good as Breugger’s and still only take 3 hours to make.
These chewy, tender, golden yellow egg bagels are so easy to make at home.
Serve these warm, cinnamon sugar pumpkin-spiced bagels toasted with butter or a hearty maple-bacon cream cheese.
Once you know how to make your own bagels, you’ll make them over and over again because while you’ll know how secretly easy they are to make, your friends won’t — and getting to bask those impressed reactions? Priceless.
