This was my first attempt at making bagels and they were delicious! I was a little worried about if they had risen enough, but after I broiled for five minutes before boiling, they rose a LOT. With that, (on my first time with this recipe) the shape expanded so much that I lost the whole in the middle. In the end , they still tasted good but the appearance was a bit off. The second time though, I was prepared for this and made the whole way bigger and the whole thing shorter. They look perfect! The only other issue I had was getting them off the pan. I did grease it, but it was still a little difficult. In the end, most of them came off successfully. You can really add anything to these, as I've experimented with. I've done sesame seeds on top before baking, cheese on top, dried cherrie with little cashews and cinammon sugar, cinammon raisin, etc. So don't be afraid to play around with it! I've never had a bad batch :)
