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!
