I've been making these bagels since February and they are going down well in my family. I decided to change it a little bit since my last posting. Now because I have to cook several at once, I am using the grill instead of the toaster, I am only cooking the inside of the bagel, not the outer side. This feels nice when holding the bagel, I think its the softness of the warm bread. I have also added German smoked ham to my recipe, this gives it a nice smoky bacon flavour. I also cook an omelette and cut it into 4 quarters so that I can put a quarter of omelette on the bagel. The photos below are of my bagels. Sorry for the slight blurriness. These go great with a mug of hot tea!
