Bagels

When you spread your cream cheese, do you go over the hole, or around it?

I'm a floofless skinbag b/c I only butter my bagels. Worse, I prefer to microwave them than toast them. :cool:

Once. They didn't turn out well and I haven't tried since.
I just tried them.

If you prove them for 15 minutes, boil them for 50 seconds, and then prove for another 20 minutes, they turn out alright.

Did your ones float or sink when you boiled them? I remember trying to make bagels months ago- and when I boiled them they sank.
This time they floated- so I think the difference was that they hadn't proved successfully when I did my first try.

I think they floated? I did this maybe 5 or 6 years ago, when I still didn't have a great grasp on bread making.

Today, I schlepped out to Trader Joe's for the first time in a long time. Naturally, I picked up some of their bagels. I forgot how good they are. Just the plain, Trader Joe bagel, toasted, with plain cream cheese. Yus plz.

i found a store that sells bagels without the holes and they are so damn cheap.

if you don't mind your bagels being misshapen and occassionally matching the border structure of texas and mexico then i suggest you try it.
