Giant Everything Bagels Recipe

What’s better than an everything bagel? How about TWO, GIANT everything bagels???

And here you thought I was kidding! LOL


1 1/2 cups, plus 3 tablespoons warm water (110 degrees)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons dried minced onion
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon caraway seeds
cooking spray
2 teaspoons water
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
-In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water and honey. Allow to sit 5 minutes until it gets foamy.
-In the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a large bowl with a wooden spoon) mix the flour, oatmeal, salt, pepper, minced onion and poppy seeds.
-Using the dough hook (or a wooden spoon) add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture and stir vigorously until all the flour is incorporated.
-Drizzle the olive oil into the dough and continue kneading (either with the dough hook in the stand mixer, or turning it out and kneading the dough by hand) until a soft, smooth dough forms and is not sticky to the touch. *If kneading by hand, you’ll want to have a little extra flour on hand to prevent the dough from sticking to the counter.
-Kneading will take several minutes, whether you’re doing it by hand or with a mixer. Be patient and keep kneading.
-Place the dough in a well oiled bowl and cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
-Place the bowl in a warm place and allow the dough to rise until it doubles in size (approximately 1 hour).
-Once risen, punch the dough down to deflate and divide the dough into two equally sized pieces.
-Shape each piece into a round shape and using your fingers, poke them through the middle of each round and use your hands to stretch the dough to form a large, evenly shaped “O”.
-Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
-Spray a ramekin or small Pyrex type bowl with cooking spray and place the dough circle over the bowl in the center of the parchment lined baking sheet.
-Continue with the second bowl and dough circle.
-Allow the dough to rise again in a warm place until doubled in size.
-Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
-Dissolve the baking powder in the 2 teaspoons of water and brush the tops of each risen bagel lightly with baking powder mixture.
-Sprinkle the tops of the bagels evenly with the garlic powder, sesame and caraway seeds.
-Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
-Carefully lift the bagels (using pot holders) and remove the bowls from under of the bagels.
-Return the bagels to the oven and continue baking them for an additional 10 minutes (the bagels should sound hallow when tapped).
-Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
-These bagels can be served sliced, as is, or sliced and toasted with your choice to toppings (butter) YUM!
-They also freeze beautifully so you can eat one now and save one for later.
I hope this recipe got a “rise” out of you!

These are great! Almost like bagel bundts. I love the idea of just cutting off a slice for a breakfast bite.
