Homemade Bagels: New York Style

Homemade Bagel

Today I’m sharing an amazing recipe for homemade bagels. This particular recipe mimics New York style bagels. The first time I had a New York bagel I bought a half dozen at a time. I didn’t try one until I was on the bus home, and immediately regretted not buying more. At that moment I understood why New York holds the crown for best bagels. The outside is crispy, while the center remains soft and chewy. Though the recipe doesn’t call for a lot of ingredients, these bagels were very flavorful. They take some time, but in the end are worth the effort!

  • I’m not a huge fan of bagels – but if I made them myself and they were fresh I bet you the be a million times better. Thanks for sharing, might give it a go.

    These look delicious! As a 1st time maker of these how long did they take you to make? And I see you had quite a few, did they store well/still taste good after a couple of days?

      They take about 20 minutes to bake. And yes, they keep for a couple days!
