Health, Home, and Happiness: Homemade Onion Bagels, in pictures

Homemade Onion Bagels, in pictures

Hubby slyly suggested I blog about making blueberry bagels.  I believe he was more concerned about his belly than my readers, but we'll go with it.  I told him we didn't have blueberries, to which the response was, well, we do have onions. Onion bagels it is.

Homemade bagels are amazing warm and fresh from the oven. I just made a basic white bread yeast dough, then added two onions that I had shredded (with the grater blade) in the food processor. I've done them with soaked wheat as well, they just take a little longer to rise.

Mixed in the KitchenAid. I love my mixer, I've heard that Bosch makes a nice one too, but this one works well for me.  I don't think I'd make nearly as much fresh bread as I do without it. Dump ingredients in and go is good for a lazy foodie like me ~smile~

Dough is slightly sticky, I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not, I'm not particular about it. I added a bunch of farm fresh golden egg yolks leftover from making macaroons the day before.

To form the bagels I roll a ball, slightly flatten, then stick my thumb through to make the whole.  I think they're lumpy because of the onions, or maybe the butter in the dough left lumps.

Allow to rise on a greased pan or dish while the water starts to boil.  It takes my stove forever to boil a big pot of water like this.

Put risen bagles into boiling water, I have them stay there until they float to the surface then remove with a slotted spoon, placing on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 400 until cooked through, about 25 minutes.  These are darker because of the egg yolk. A little lumpy, but yummy.

I'm trying to learn how to use kamut flour and/or coconut flour.

Can you give me any tips on how to use these flours instead of white?

Those look sooo good! :)

Thanks for posting!

Those look good. I made bagels once about 16 years ago. They made good teething biscuits for my oldest! Never tried again.

You make this look so easy, but very tempting to try. I like how creative you are with adapting whatever ingredients you have on hand to what you want to make!

Thanks! They are fun to use.

I'm pretty sure that coconut flour wouldn't work for these, it would be too crumbly. Kamut- I'll have to look more into that one!

I made bagels yesterday too, they really aren't as hard as people like to think.

Oh, I gave you an award at my homesteading blog. Check it out.

Yuuumm.. I have never tried to make bagels before. You make it look very easy. How long does it take them to cook in the water and rise to the top? I will have to give them a try :-)

Rising to the top of the water- maybe 1-2 minutes? It doesn't take long.

Thanks for stopping by!
