Just wanted to the thank the 'hounds who posted their favorite homemade bagel recipe. I made a big batch this weekend (onion, salt, and sesame) and they were instantly devoured. The recipe was easy and fun--I think I maybe boiled them a little too long, as they turned out slightly gummy/moist inside, but otherwise, they really had that bagel taste/texture, esp. when toasted. Thanks again to all.
