Bagel Toast

Bagel toast is absolutely one of my favorite childhood foods. Not many of you know it about me, but for years I was a super picky eater. Eating only very basic stuff, not diverse at all. And the toast was the dish I felt most comfortable with. A spread, cheese, and toppings. Very simple and straightforward. For this toast, I made the bagel from scratch which makes it the coolest bagel toast I ever had. Usually, bagels are high and thick, containing a lot of dough that is not necessary for the toast at all (Zikki taught me to ask to scoop my NY bagel- brilliant). My method is to flatten the bagels after we shape them. It results in a wide-flat bagel, perfect for your toast. 2.5 hours from start to bite.

Knead the dough for about 8-10 min, until it's smooth and sexy.

Round the dough into a tight ball and it rests in a clean bowl, covered with a towel until almost double in size.

After the dough has raised in size, punch it to take out all the air.

Step 7

Divide the dough into 200 gr pieces. Each one of them, shape into a tight ball and cover with a towel to rest for about 20 min.

Step 8

Then make a hole in the center of the dough ball and start stretching it evenly to create a bagel shape.

Step 9

Dip the bagel in water, then coat it completely with sesame seeds.

Eat immediately. And make one for each person you host. I'm not sure you will share it :)
