2 Ingredient Bagels

I will be the first to admit that I love bagels!  Give me a warm and/or toasted bagel, topped with a little cream cheese and I am in heaven.

When I stumbled across this recipe for homemade bagels that only had 2 ingredients, I was skeptical, especially when I realized what the 2 ingredients were! Ok, truthfully there are 4 ingredients, but the 3rd and 4th and minimal.Who would think that self rising flour and plain Greek yogurt can be mixed together to make bagels?  I figured I’d at least give it a try so I picked up some self-rising flour and got to work.

I tried these for the first time today.  After combining the flour and yogurt, I will admit that the dough was a lot stickier than it should have been. I was not able to “roll” it out into logs to form my bagels. It was just too sticky! I didn’t want to add too much flour but in hindsight, I probably should have added more.  I worked with what I had and cut my dough into strips and put it on the pan in a circle to form the “bagel”.   ***Edit:  I have found that the Fage 0% plain greek yogurt works the best for these bagels.  Just be sure to drain off any liquid from the top of your yogurt before using.***

After a quick egg wash and seasoning to the top, into the oven they went.  22 minutes later, I had fresh hot bagels!
