I’ve been keeping sort of a LCHF diet for the past 18 months or so. No bread, rice, pasta, potatoes etc. I haven’t missed any of it. Except for the bread. I love bread and most of all I love bagels.
So after a year and a half I got a bad craving for bread and bagels in particular and since bagels aren’t common in grocery stores over here I decided to try baking my own.
I used a recipe in Swedish that I found online and it wasn’t tricky at all. A bit time consuming since you have to boil them besides baking them in the oven but tricky, no.
So I vowed that if they turned out ok I’d invest I something better than the old 80’s hand mixer (which almost turned red hot) I used to knead the somewhat dense dough.
They turned out way better than just ok so meet my new bagel buddy! I found Arty via Blocket (our Craigs List). He is very gently used by the previous owner and I have a serious crush on him. Next up baguettes! And yes, thus my bread eating days are back.
