Homemade Bagel Recipe: these bagels are boiled and then baked to create that perfect, chewy bagel texture that everyone knows and loves.
This homemade bagel recipe is a keeper. So delicious, chewy and fresh.
I have a wonderful friend, who I’ve known since high school. She lives about 3 hours away, so our relationship takes place over the phone for the most part now. One day when I was talking to her, she was making bagels. I know…making bagels.
I was very excited when I asked her if she’d make them for my annual visit and she agreed. We visited her a few weeks ago, and let me tell you the homemade bagels did not disappoint, they were amazing. So, while she made them, I took some shots and here is the recipe so that both you and I can have a go at recreating Leanne’s amazing homemade bagels.
Perfect Rainy Day Recipe
Great rainy day activity, although the day we made them it was sunny and warm and we waited for them to rise while swimming, and drinking wine spritzers in the sun, and that was pretty wonderful.

Adding the flour.
Time to knead the dough.
What could be more pleasant than drinking tea with one of your best friends you only see once a year while she kneads dough to make you fresh bagels. Nothing.
Next the dough was left to rise.
After it rises, you punch it down.
And then you form your 8 balls of goodness.
Time to form them into their bagel shape.
Next they get a quick boil to form that signature bagel chewy texture.
Now they get their glam.
And finally it’s time to bake them. That fresh bagel baking smell is pretty amazing.
The Perfect Lunch -Or Anytime
They were awesome, crusty on the outside, soft on the inside, with the perfect great bagel chewiness. Lee, you out did yourself! We had them for lunch, still warm with a little butter, and a delicious homemade soup.
With a homemade bagel recipe and having them made from scratch just for you, life really is a party! Enjoy!
