Ken is the bread baker in this house and loves to create wonderfully aromatic bread from scratch. Yup, I am a lucky girl. I had asked him to make bagels for me when we were making Homemade Truffle Salt Bagels for #Breadbakers, a group that I have joined to bake bread together on a monthly basis.
Ken bulked at the idea thinking that they were way too difficult. I showed him a recipe from Epicurious and encouraged him to try, he usually just needs a nudge and he is off and running. He thought he would give them a go and found out they were very easy indeed to make.
He has blessed us with round two of bagel making, this time with Sundried Tomato Asiago Bagels. These were inspired by seeing them at Tim Horton’s.
Homemade bread is something that is magnificent!! No preservatives so that your bread will never mold or get stale, um, it is supposed to if not eaten right away.
Homemade gives you fresh, out of the oven goodness!! A real treat and I am so glad Ken has mastered bagel making!
The combination of the sundried tomatoes that burst with flavor and the asiago, which is one of my favorite cheeses, marry together perfectly in this gorgeous bagel.
I will give you all the ingredients here but the instructions I have still left to Epicurious. They have really mastered this recipe for bagels. There is no reason for me to adapt it other than the ingredients with a few additions. Let your mind wander to your favorite additives. The sky is the limit and your taste buds the winners!!

I love bagels. They aren’t hugely popular in Australia like they are in the states. I’m going to try making these.
