*I doubled the recipe in the pictures.

**You can use sugar instead. Substitute the same amount but add it to the dry ingredients instead of wet.

***Or you can use 1 tbsp active dry yeast but read this article on how to switch instant for active dry.

CAN THE BAGELS BE FROZEN?

Yes! We freeze ours all the time. I would recommend keeping them in the freezer for no more than 1 month and to slice them beforehand. I heat them up in the toaster and add some cream cheese, and they taste amazing. You would never be able to tell that they were frozen.
