When you can’t be in New York, bring New York to you!
I’ve been craving bagels for ages! I think it started somewhere between Instagram feeds and Hart of Dixie re-runs!
I found the most amazing, authentic East Coast Bagel recipe and I’m happy to report that my bagel craving has finally been satisfied!
buggers bagels take a long time to prepare, but trust me when I say they are totally worth every mouth watering bite!
Serve them warm; with cream cream cheese, home made marmalade and steaming hot tea.
Check out the recipe and instructions below, and my slightly adapted ingredients list that I’ve converted to metric for us local gals.
