These are made from scratch and taste much better than the ones you buy halfready or from the store. You can decorate them with your favorite seeds. I like my bagels with cream cheese, or fresh salad and salmon. Please tell me your toppings if you comment!

These were good, but I think they were missing something because mine didn't turn out shiny and were a little heavy on the inside. They still had a good flavor though. I used sesame seeds and cinnamon sugar for the toppings. Thank you for posting! Made for PAC, Fall '09.

- 2 teaspoons yeast
