Jimmy and I are getting married in less than two weeks. You would think I’m up to my eyeballs in wedding-related errands. I am. I somehow found myself with a few hours to myself yesterday. What did I do?
Did I make a honeymoon packing list? Did I send song requests to the DJ? Did I get the bridesmaid’s gifts together? Did I… you get the point. The answer is no, I didn’t do anything wedding-related. Instead, I made everything bagels. So logical, right?
Sometimes you just have to do something that doesn’t even slightly have anything to do with what you should be doing. Whatsoever. At all. You know what? It feels pretty good! Plus, I was able to cross bagels off of my baking bucket list. Woot woot!
I used this recipe, and it was pretty simple. I read some reviews and didn’t keep the bagels in the oven for the full 20 minutes. I also opted to boil the bagels in honey water because I read that it gave them a crisp crust.
I probably don’t have to tell you that these made my kitchen smell so good. Seriously, though… it smelled like a yeasty-sweet bagel factory. That’s totally a thing 😉
Of course bagels pair wonderfully with cream cheese, but Hannah wanted me to share her favorite bagel sandwich recipe: everything bagel + cream cheese + bacon. Let me know if you give it a try–my whole family is addicted!
