Wishing those who celebrate a very Happy Easter and Happy Passover.
I was so happy to have an extra day off for a three day weekend so I knew I had to plan to make something that I had on my to-do list. One of my favorite online video chefs is Laura Vitale of Laura in the Kitchen. Earlier in the week, I had watched her making bagels. Over the years I’ve learned to make bread and rolls but I avoided making bagels thinking they would be out of my level of cooking skills. I watched her video and I was really amazed at how simple they could be. I’m a bit of a visual learner so her instructions were just what I needed. So on Friday I dug in my heals and gave it a try. All I can say is WOW! My bagels may not look perfect but I was so pleased with how they turned out and so was my husband.
While I do not have my own recipe to share, here are the results of my first time making bagels and the link to the video. I hope you will give these a try as they really are easy to make at home and are very delicious.
Just as an added note the bagels are just a little darker because I had used a whole egg for the egg wash. I needed to use a whole egg wash earlier for something else I baked didn’t want to waste it so these baked up a darker color. Next time I will use the egg white wash as in the recipe.
Thank you to Laura Vitale for your wonderful videos and delicious recipes!
I hope you will give it a try, here is the link to the video.
