During this time spend at home, I have tried to learn something new every week. So far, a lot of that being in the kitchen!
One of the first things I made was bread, but by far the most exciting thing I learned was how to make Bagels. Guaranteed, I should have thought to make Montreal Bagels since I live in Montreal, but I ended up opting for a New York style bagel. Let me tell you…. YUM!
Here is the youtube video I followed and I will put the list of ingredients below!
Ingredients you’ll need:
500g bread flour (about 3.5 cups)
23g white sugar (about 1.5 tablespoons)
10g instant dried yeast (about 1 tablespoon)
297g warm water @90 degrees Fahrenheit (about 320 ml)
6g salt (1.5 teaspoons)
Everything Bagel Seasoning: (I only had sesame seeds so I used those)
2 tablespoons dried garlic flakes
2.5 tablespoons dried onion flakes
1.5 tablespoons white sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
1/2 tablespoon flakey salt or kosher salt (ideally flakey)
Instructions: are all in the youtube video!
The bagels turned out great and they were really tasty! Definitely would recommend if you are looking for something exciting to try during this time at home!
