I bet they are chewy and taste great with melted butter?

oh yes they are good plain or toasted and with or without butter

I think it's really cool you made bagels. I understand that it's hard to make. Yours look perfect!

I LOVE bagels....just try not to eat them very often. I had been craving them and there is no bagel shop around here and the ones at Krogers do NOT taste like the bagel shops or homemade...so I decided to make some. I really wanted PLAIN ones but did not have enough flour so I had to add milled flaxseed and dried onion to help stiffen the dough up!

they were sooooo good!

and bagels are actually easy to make...just a lengthier process than most. You have to make the dough..let it rise.....then make the balls......let that rest for 30 more min....then boil that water.......make the bagel shapes.....let sit for 10 minutes while water comes to boil....then boil each for 2 minutes one side and 1 minute other side......then back for 20-25 minutes!

sorry! if you were closer you would be more than welcome to have some! I doubt they would last if I shipped them! NO preservatives in my goods!
