There are few things more satisfying than a fresh toasted bagel with cream cheese, or, as I’ve heard it is called in other regions, “bagel with shmear”.  Chewy and golden, they are loaded with flavor and are perfect any time of day (not just for breakfast).  There are no preservatives in these clean eating bagels, so use within one day or freeze.  See our suggestions for leftover bagels (if you have any) below.

Ingredients

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place warm water, 2 eggs, butter, and honey into the bowl of a stand mixer. (This recipe not recommended for hand mixing.) Add flour. Add salt to the side of the bowl and add yeast to the center of the flour.
  2. Fit mixer with dough hook. Turn mixer to 1 and let knead 5 minutes or until dough ball forms and cleans sides of bowl.
  3. Working on a lightly floured work surface, divide dough into fourths, then into fourths again (16 pieces). Form each piece into a ball. Using your finger, poke a hole through the center of a ball. Spin the dough ball around your finger to stretch the hole to the size you want it (note that the hole will shrink as soon as you stop). Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. Let rest 15 minutes.
  4. While dough is resting, bring 3-4 quarts of water and 2 tablespoons baking soda to a boil. Preheat oven to 375. Using a slotted spoon or spatula, slowly add each bagel to the boiling water (work in batches so as not to over crowd the pot). Bagels will sink, then float. Once floating, turn over and let boil 3 more minutes. Place bagels back onto prepared baking sheet.
  5. Make an egg glaze by beating the yolk from the remaining egg (discard white or save for another use) with 3 tablespoons water. Brush glaze onto each bagel and top as desired.
  6. Bake at 375 30-35 minutes.
Recipe Notes

Leftover bagels can be made into bagel pizzas: simply cut each one in half, spread with a no-sugar-added pasta sauce, top with grated mozzarella cheese and any other toppings you desire.  From here, freeze until ready to use, OR bake at 400 for 10 minutes.  (15 min if frozen)

Leftover bagels can also be made into bagel chips: cut each bagel into chips by slicing crosswise into thin rounds.  Toss the rounds in olive oil (enough to coat) and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Optionally sprinkle with garlic powder or onion powder.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until golden and toasted.

  1. I made these bagels this morning and they were pretty easy and very tasty. I ate one and froze the rest for easy breakfast/snack options for the upcoming weeks.
