I'm going to try this without a bread machine, the same way I make any bread. Bloom the yeast in the warm water. Mix all dry ingredients add all wet & need until stretchy.
Converting a recipe such as this is relatively simple. Mix the yeast, honey and water, let it set about 5 minutes. Mix all dry ingredients, add the remainder (eggs, oil, etc.), retaining the cheese, egg white and water for topping the bagels as called for in the recipe. Mix well, knead until smooth, 8-10 minutes, or mix in a stand mixer for 8 minutes. Boil and bake as required in the recipe. Just find a bagel recipe that doesn't require a bread machine, follow those instructions using the given ingredients. I find that most recipes are easily interchangeable. I tried this one because my granddaughter loves the asiago cheese bagels at Panera, which are both huge and expensive. I can make them in a more manageable size at far less expense and they are pretty close.
How do you make this without a bread machine?
Very Good. Great texture. !
I'm with you. Sounds Yummy! Could someone TOH come out with information on how to convert Bread Machine recipes to making them by the old fashion way? Maybe rules of thumb would help in converting some recipes over for use into bread machine recipes.
Sounds wonderful but I don't have a bread machine. How can I convert this recipe that I don't use a bread machine?
I came up with the variation after reading in the Oct/Nov 2010 TOH magazine the recipes for the pumpkin and cranberry bagels. How easy this was using the bread machine to mix up and rise the dough. This is bagels made easy and oh so yummy. I made these for an appetizer for our church's progressive supper and cut them into bite sized pieces and then served them with an 8 oz. block of cream cheese softened and blended with an 8 oz. jar of green pepper jelly. They were a big hit, and the sweet/spicy cream cheese spread was a great addition to the rustic cheesiness of the bagels.
