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.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have Garlic Garlic or Onion Onion, you can use regular onion and garlic flakes although I recommend trying it!
