{July 18, 2010}   Homemade Asiago and Chive Bagels

This weekend, I decided it would be nice to bake something special since I am going away to camp for 5 days tomorrow ! I will be gone for a week but I pinky promise to make something amazingly awesome when I get back! Also, guess what? When I get back I plan on submitting a video to the Wendy Williams Show so I could be on cooking for Wendy! 🙂 Anyway, on to the bagels. They were amazing fresh out of the oven with a little bit of butter. Let’s just say, I will be making them again! This is my own recipe, so if you do use this recipe on your blog or somewhere, please credit me! 🙂

Homemade Asiago and Chive Bagels

Yields 5 large bagels or 10 mini bagels (I did some large and same mini)

You Will Need:
– 3 1/2 cups bread flour, plus extra for dusting your surface

– 1 1/2 cups water for dough

– 3/4 cup warm (not boiling, or this will kill the yeast) water for yeast mixture

– 1/2 cup asiago cheese, shredded

– 1/4 cup finely chopped chives

– 1 tsp garlic salt

– 1 tsp sugar

– egg wash (1 egg + 1 tsp water)

Directions:

1. Combine the 1/4 cup warm water with yeast and sugar, mix and let sit for 5 minutes.

2. In a large bowl combine bread flour,  1 1/2 cups water, yeast mixture, Asiago cheese, and chives, making sure to blend everything in.

3. Divide dough into 5 pieces. Let rise, covered, for 10 minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

5. For mini bagels: Divide ball in half. Once each piece is in a nice ball, poke your finger through the circle and stretch it out a little. In the pic below, its not really close up so you can’t really see the holes.

6. Boil some water (enough to hold at least 3 mini bagels or 2 full size-ones) and add in bagels. Boil for 1 minute.

7. Put on a greased pan, brush with egg wash, and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown!
