Top Review by Chef Buggsy Mate

I made these tonight with my youngest daughter. She did 99% of the recipe all by herself, I was just there to guide her. We had so much fun together in the kitchen! Her favorite part was boiling the bagels...she found it hard to believe that you had to boil them first. We chose to leave them plain so that we could spread them with our natural peanut butter, fruit spreads or flavored cream cheeses. This recipe was so simple we will be making our own bagels from now on. Thanks for posting your recipe. Made and reviewed for Spring PAC 2011.
