    Amazing. I'm a New Yorker, and these definitely hold up to the NY bagel standard. Just make sure to boil them for 2 minutes on each side as suggested for a NY style bagel. Also, adding an egg wash and then shredded Monterey Jack before putting in the oven is great too!

    Outstanding. The bagels were tasty and fresh. When I formed the dough into bagel shapes I thought they looked like mini bagels. But they expanded in the boiling phase. They were standard sized when i was done. I opted for sesame bagels. The egg wash worked. Now if there were only a way to reduce the sesame casualties on the counter, in the baking sheet, in the sink. Still they are delicious!

    It was a great taste I think I need to practice my kneeding skills a little more. But for a first try at baking, this was very simple and left a lot of room for error. They still turned out fantastic!!

    Turned out great! I used more water than was called for in the recipe.

    I had never made bagels before but these turned out amazing! Super easy to make and taste delicious, just like an Einstein’s bagel. Definitely will be making again. Also recommend adding Everything Bagel Seasoning.

    Great bagel recipe! Very easy and excellent results. I wanted a slightly sweet finish, so I added 2 tablespoons of molasses to the dough and 2 tablespoons of honey in the boiling water. This was just enough to give the bagels a honey wheat flavor, which was just what I wanted while using plain bread flour.

    In my 2nd attempt I chose to let the dough prove for 18 hours in these refrigerator prior to seperating them into balls. Then I let them rest another 20 minutes before forming into bagels and another 20 minute rest before boiling, seasoning, and baking. They came out much lighter and chewier than my first try. yummy!

    Could have done the same bagel with wheat flour.. as the texture matched with wheat flour bagels..

    these are a rock solid staple for me. easy to make, easy to share, they make great house warming or party gifts, and they are delicious. they're also vegan, which checks a lot of boxes in my social circle. Two thumbs up!

    These are pretty good! If you are in the mood for some variation, I suggest extending the proof time and kneading time, adding a teaspoon of honey or brown sugar to the water and bake until dark brown; they turn out like Montreal style bagels.

    Delicious but when you are making them for the first time, it’s more like 2 and a half hours.

    Had trouble getting it to be elastic, shape was a little off but taste was really good!!!

    Tasted delicious! I had a little trouble making the dough smooth and making those perfect little dough balls. I’ll practice by making more!
