Oh my GOSH!!! These were delicious. I love to make breads and had never tried bagels before so I gave this one a try. They turned out great. A couple of changes though. I only need 4 1/4 cups of flour, and to make it healthier I substituted 1/2 cup of WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR for an equal emount of all-purpose. Next time I think I'll substitute more. And I also used brown sugar for the bagels. And I also extended the baking time because 25 minutes was not entirely long enough; they were still too moist in the middle. Read More

as a 16 year old with free time during summer, i love cooking and these bagels are wonderful. they don't take too much time to make, aside from waiting for the dough to rise, but forming the bagels into a nice shape is tricky (i haven't been able to make them look like decent ones yet) but they taste delicious, wonderfully chewy and yet not the least bit rubbery.

Ifound that the bagles were a little salty, but I think that if you cut the salt in half that went into the water it would solve that problem, The steps were very easy to fallow, but bagles take work. My son loved them but said they tasted diferent than the Bakery. I added Chocochips to mine and they were great but a little salty. Read More

this is the first time i made bagels and i think they turned out pretty good. they tasted great. they looked like bagels but not perfect circles (look at the photo on this site). i think that will take some practice. i followed the step by step photo tutorial on this site "Forming and Baking Bagels".

I ve been very pleased with the taste but the look wasn t very impressive. Maybe I did something wrong because they weren t very smooth on the top. Or is it because I made them with 3 cups WW Flour and 1.5 cups white flour? I have no idea! But anyway the taste was delicious. And that s all that matters right? Read More

These bagels taste awesome...I followed the recipe exactly let my bread machine do the hard work...The only suggestion I have is once you have shaped the bagels before boiling let them rise for a further hour so they are not so heavy. That was the only comment that the kids made and I have made them hundreds of times now since finding this recipe.....Thank you Read More

I have a bagel maker which makes the boiling part much easier. I hadn't thought of boiling them in a skillet. Read More
