The past weekend when everything outside was too dang cold, soggy and wet I stayed indoors for some baking. I made bagels from scratch for the first time. They turned out pretty good but holy cow what a lot of work. Mix, rise, knead, stretch, shape, rise, boil, broil, bake....
While doing this I was watching the public station and there was a show on New York bakeries. They featured a place that sold a bialy which is essentially a polish bagel, not boiled, with a filled depression in the middle instead of a hole. Went online and found a recipe. MUCH easier to make, easy to freeze for future use and very tasty! Anyone had one of these?
If you're interested, there's a recipe on the wikipedia page:
