As mentioned in my last post, I found the recipes for the Quick Bagel and the Classic Bagel on The Chew’s site. I love their recipes and find things to make that I always found a bit intimidating. I made the Quick Bagel earlier this week so that I could compare the two. I have to say I enjoyed it, it was better than store bought but I do think these are worth the extra time in the fridge! But if you are looking for a quick treat, here is my post on the Quick Bagel. Really the only difference is the time it requires to sit in the fridge but it does make a difference.
In a stand mixer bowl, combine flour, salt, yeast and sugar. Attach the dough hook and add warm water and place on low for about 1-2 minutes. Increase speed to medium and let it go for 3-4 minutes. Place in vegetable oil-greased bowl and cover with a damp towel, allow to rest for 60 minutes, then cover with plastic and refrigerate for 48 hours.
Remove from fridge, divide into 6 pieces and roll into balls. Poke hole into center and stretch until hole is an inch and a half wide. Allow to sit on a cookie sheet lined with a flour dusted parchment paper for 15 minutes. In the meantime combine poppy and sesame seeds, sea salt, Onion Onion, and Garlic Garlic to make Everything seasoning. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and start a large pot of water boiling. Drop bagels in boiling water, 3 at a time for 45 seconds on each side. Place them on a cookie sheet lined with a greased piece of parchment paper. Liberally sprinkle Everything seasoning on each bagel and bake for 18-20 minutes.
Classic Everything Bagels
- 3 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 tsp Instant Dry Yeast
- 2 tsp Sugar
- 2 tsp Salt
- 1 1/4 Cup Warm Water
- 1 tsp Vegetable Oil
- 2 Tbsp Poppy Seeds
- 2 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
- 3 Tbsp Onion Onion by Tastefully Simple
- 3 Tbsp Garlic Garlic by Tastefully Simple

Combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt to a stand mixer bowl. Attach dough hook, add water and set on low for 1-2 minutes. Set to medium for another 3-4 minutes.
Place dough in a greased bowl, cover with damp towel and allow to rest for 60 minutes. After resting, cover with plastic and refrigerate for 48 hours.
Divide dough into 6 pieces and make into balls. Poke holes into the centers and stretch until hole is about and inch and a half. Place on cookie sheet lined with floured parchment paper and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
While that is resting make Everything seasoning by combining all the ingredients. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and have a large pot of water come to a boil.
Place bagels into water, 3 at a time, flipping after 45 seconds. Place bagels on cookie sheet lined with greased parchment paper. Liberally season with Everything seasoning and bake for 18-20 minutes.
If you don't have Garlic Garlic or Onion Onion, you can use regular onion and garlic flakes although I recommend trying it!
