Once upon a time I had a little Cottage Bakery. A friend and I decided we loved making bagels so much that we wanted to share them with others. I got a license and away we started making bagels. I come from a small town and there were no fresh bagels shops back then, so we thought it would be perfect to have a little side business that others can benefit from. Well, I’m a full time RN and making bagels initially didn’t take much time, I could work and come home and bake away. However, word got around that there were 2 ladies making great bagels. When we got up to making 300 bagels a day, we unfortunately decided that it was not doable to sustain our little hobby with me working full time as a nurse. Sadly to say, we stopped making them but I did keep my license, maybe one day…
Why the story your ask lol well, I’ve made lots of bagels in my days, using commercial yeast and sourdough but never like this recipe. I must say though, these are fun and very simple to make. This recipe requires a few simple ingredients, including non-fat Greek yogurt but absolutely no yeast or sourdough starter.
NO YEAST BAGELS 🥯This recipe is for all of you who want to make bagels, have been intimidated to, don’t want to use yeast or don’t have a sourdough starter. This has to be the easiest method for making bagels & I guess you can say they’re protein rich because of the yogurt 🤷🏻♀️I’ve read several recipes using only yogurt & decided I’d try to make my own version. Guess what, it worked! Not a typical bagel dough but, they’re easy to make, requires no proofing, no boiling in water, have a soft & chewy crumb & a crispy crust. They truly are delicious. I topped them with Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning but you can use anything you like or make them naked, that’s what we called out plain bagels.
This is a small batch, it makes only 4 bagels but you can double the recipe. I hope those of you who have been intimated to make bagels, give this one a try. You will enjoy them.
Thank you for stopping by.
