Sometimes I impress myself. It’s hard to do, because generally, I’m incredibly hard on myself, but every once in a great blue moon it will happen. And when it does…
I have to admit that I have never really had anything ‘everything’. I know. I’m ridiculous, but it’s true. Truth be told, I don’t like barely anything….so the thought of having everything was a little daunting. When Dustin and I started dating, everything was all he would eat. And even his kids, who are insanely picky were requesting everything bagels. Clearly I was missing something. So I tried it.
And they are magical. So naturally that led me to buying everything seasoning (The best place to buy it is Trader Joe’s! In case there isn’t a TJ near you, Amazon to the rescue!) and putting it on everything. (Get it, everything seasoning….on everything?) Which then led me to making my own everything seasoning (try it, you will thank me) and now literally everything is seasoned with everything.
But back to the bagels.
If you would have told me that I would be that kind of woman who would be making homemade bagels, I would have laughed at you. A business, three dogs, seven kids and I would have life together enough to be making homemade bagels!?!
But I did. I totally did it. And they are so.freaking.amazing. Not only are they amazing, but since I photographed these bagels for this post, we’ve made them twice more. I can’t even eat the bagels from our local bagel shop anymore. And bagels from the store? Forget it. This is all I want.
I’ve learned not only about how fantastic everything seasoning is, but how much it is worth it to make homemade bagels. Combined, they are nothing short of amazing. But if for some reason you are weird and don’t like everything seasoning (for real, have you ever really tried it?) you can make this recipe with a hundred other combinations: plain, chocolate chip, cinnamon raisin, mmmm….. This is the only bagel reason you will ever need!
