The best Bagels of your life!

Tuesday I saw my ex boyfriend again. I don’t know if it was a good idea, but we had a lot of fun so well, we’ll see what happens …
In short, we had a picnic. For this occasion I had made Bagels and I must say that for an improvisation, I did pretty well. Do you want the recipe ?
Well let’s go for the best Bagels of your life!

What? Me, exaggerating? never ! It’s not my type.
Well, maybe I’m not very objective, so I’ll let you judge on the spot.

For 8 soft and golden bagels (I have planned the rest for my breakfasts):

Ingredients :

  • 200 ml of hot water
  • 1 sachet of instant yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 30 ml of vegetable oil
  • 60 ml of honey
  • 600g of flour
  • 250 ml of water + 60 ml of malted barley syrup or honey
  • Sesame seeds.

Preparation :

  1. In a large bowl, combine the water with the yeast, sugar and salt until dissolved.
  2. Add the egg, egg yolk, oil and honey. Mix well.
  3. Gradually add flour to form a dough while stirring constantly. Knead for about ten minutes and add a little more flour if you see that the dough sticks.
  4. Cover for 15 minutes.
  5. Bring out the air by lightly kneading the dough by hand and divide into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ring.
  6. Cover with a clean towel and leave for a good 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 230 ° C.
  8. Boil 1 cup of water with 1/4 cup of malted barley syrup or honey.
  9. Boil each bagel for 30 seconds in the mixture. Remove excess water and cover with sesame seeds.
  10. Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.

A little idea for a simple garnish:

In a bowl, mix 8 large tablespoon of cream cheese, with 4 teaspoons of curry, 2 teaspoons of strong mustard and 4 teaspoons of honey.
Spread your bagels with your preparation;
Add slices of roast chicken or pan-fried cutlets and avocado slices!
