Bagels and Pretzels

Awhile back, I shaped bagel dough into braids, twists, pretzels and wedges.  The wedges were my favorite because they toasted great, and held a good amount of white chicken meat with mayo.

After being a VegHead for most my life, I never thought chicken and bagels would become my favorite meat and bread combination.  But I love it, and often roast a chicken and bake bagels for the same meal.

So simple.  So good.

  1. Oh my God. I am so jealous. I am not a baker. I'm a cook, but I suck at baking. My mother is a wonderful baker, so I don't know where I went wrong. But your bread looks beautiful. Is there any food more versatile, more comforting, than a beautiful loaf of bread. I am thinking, no way, Jose.
    Love your site!!

  2. Hi jdcoughlin: Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the nice words about my site. I'm headed to work soon, but will be over to check out your site, when I get back later tonight.

    Happy Eating :-)

    PS: I love breads too. Grounding wheaten breads are my favorite. So good.

  3. How about a roasted chicken-flavored bagel? The photos are making me HUNGRY.

  4. Mmmmm! Ivy they look delicious.

  7. Those photos have convinced me to try making bagels this weekend instead of my normal loaf!

  8. Those look so yummy! I wish I weren't on a diet. :)

  9. Hi there, Milo: In fact, I do make a poultry seasoned bagel and eat that with chicken and mayo. SO GOOD.

    Hi Katie: They are yummy. I love to make a double batch and freeze on batch.

    Hey Rusty: Thanks. You're food looks fantastic as well.

    Howdy Alan: I'd love to hear about your bagel adventure making. I do so enjoy making them. Hope you find it fun as well.

    Hi fakesteph: Nice to see you again. How about a wheaten bagel?

    Thanks guys, for stopping by. I'm home from the shop and about to make supper. Hope you all ate something yummy today.

  10. Big Ivy (^_^) Oh man. Just what a person needs that tours hospitals on a regular basis. :) Yum!

    He's safe and sound. *she lets out the breath she's been holding in for a week*

    I must make bread when I get home. Got a good recipe?

  11. Hi Robyn - I was just thinking about you and then you posted a comment. Glad to hear he is safe and sound.

    The recipe is not mine to publish, but, I will do a blog about the book it came from. I love this bread book and from what I understand, a revised or newer edition is available for sale.

    Sending you hugs and good wishes :-)
