Sourdough Everything Bagels

Sourdough Everything Bagels

Bagels are never a bad idea, but EVERYTHING bagels are the move in my opinion. Growing up my Dad loved an everything bagel, cream cheese, and lox. It was always a rare but special occasion for us, so when I asked him what he wanted for the holidays I wasn’t super surprised when he asked if I could make bagels… good question Pops. Surprisingly, they are much easier than you might think – although it IS a process, it’s can also be pretty simple…
