Looking for a TnT Bagel Recipe

I'm tired of running around from store to store looking for the perfect bagel. I've tried them from the supermarket shelf, freezer chest, and bakery. I've been to bakeries, donut shops and bagel stores with inconsistent results.

Does anyone have a tried and true bagel recipe they are willing to share? I've done the web search thing and have downloaded several but would prefer a recommended recipe.

My preference is for onion bagels, but I'll take a basic recipe. I use cream cheese and lox on them for a breakfast treat.

Thanks,

Oh I do hope you get some takers on this one. I have a recipe which I have tried, but failed miserably, they were wet and horrible and didn't rise. I did something terribly wrong, but no idea what!!!!!

I love bagels!!!

Andy, I don't eat bagels often. The only recipe I know of is in the Baking With Julia cookbook I have. You could check that one out.

Andy, I've never tried making them at home, just because of the numerous steps and the amount of space it seems to require (boiling, drying, baking etc). I've found some recipes through google but nothing TNT. Sorry! We have a good little group of bread bakers here--some who check in more frequently than others, so don't give up yet!

as far as I am concerned, you cannot make a good bagel unless you are in NY. Sorry Andy, I know this does not help you.

It's not practical for me to travel to NYC enery time I want a bagel.

Besides, I don't have to make the best bagel ever, I just have to make one I like better than what I've had so far.

As a died-in-the-wool Red Sox fan, I don't accept the concept that ANYthing is better in New York.

I've never attempted them either, which leads me to believe this is why we have so many shops devoted to nothing but bagels and spreads! I eat one almost every day, and love the fact that there's usually around 11-13 gm protein per bagel.
Hopefully there's SOMEONE out there with a recipe.....

I copied a couple of recipes from different sites but have no idea how good they are.

I'll be doing the weekly shopping later today and will pick up the ingredients I need. I'm going to try a batch this coming week.

Then I can move on to making my own lox!
