This is my main bread recipe, I just love to eat these gui crispy bread with a mildly sweet feeling on the tip of tongue - actually I am eating one nearly every day.
Yes, I also 'sometimes' make myself a bagel sandwhich - they are so tasty it is hard to believe.
While this post is about making bagels, I put the recipe for the bagel sandwhich in the bottom - don't cheat yourself, try the sandwhich.
