Jalapeno Cheddar Beer Bagels
You know, for being married to someone who's allergic to gluten, my husband still manages to be utterly spoiled in the breads department.
The other day, I decided to treat him to a batch of my homemade bagels. It's been a while, I definitely haven't made them since the tornado, so it's probably been over two years. Wow!
From the smell of these, right from the raw dough making through to the finished product... I would think that they were very much worth the wait. Hell, I seriously debated whether I should just snarf one and accept the week or two of serious fibromyalgia that THAT would mean, to me. I didn't... but OH so close! So close. Also, there are three of them left in the kitchen right now, and my husband is away at work... oh, willpower!
Bagel making is a little bit of effort, but *nothing* beats fresh, homemade bagels. These are traditional bagels - chewy, dense, and wonderful. As we're big fans of the cheddar / jalapeno / beer, I created this recipe to encompass those flavors. Sigh. I miss bagels...
Says my husband:
"These Jalapeno Cheddar Beer Bagels are SO good; no bagel from a store can compete with an oven fresh bagel bursting with flavor and that amazing texture."
Anyway, I'm gonna go ahead and post this recipe, so I can move on to something else... maybe distract myself from the thought of those golden rounds of heaven on the kitchen counter.
