Post Xmas morning/Sunday morning breakfast

Sunday mornings are usually special mornings in our house, only because we take our time with the kids and with breakfast (really, what's the hurry?).  Usually I make French toast to use up leftover challah, or sometimes we have pancakes or waffles.  Given the kids' early-birdness, by the time we're done with our morning routine, most people are just waking up.  However, it's almost 11 am, and we JUST now finished breakfast.

It's Sunday, it's the morning after Xmas (not that that means anything to us), so what better way to start off the day than with homemade bagels?

Yes, you read that right.

We can't take all the credit.  Our bread machine did all of the hard work.  Once the dough was done, it was easy to make the bagels.  In fact, the kids helped shape them so it was a nice morning activity.
Now, don't be jealous.  Really, this was super easy.  We used this recipe.

Here is a shot with homemade cream cheese and homemade grape jelly.

Here is my first artistic shot.  Enjoy the textures, if you see any.


  1. I made these for my family this afternoon, and they were scarfed up! It's such an easy bagel recipe, and with no kosher bagel place in town (save for Dunkin Donuts, which doesn't count) and food intolerance to one of the ingredients in the kosher bagels from where my uncle lives, this is a wonderful thing to no about. Thanks for posting this!

  2. d'oh - that should say "know" not "no." That's what I get for not proofreading!
