Hello and happy Monday! We’re coming off of a weekend that took somewhat of an unexpected turn, with our poor Lucas coming down with something on Friday.
A trip to Urgent Care on Thursday night gave us a negative strep test, but he had just started showing symptoms and had all of his usual tell-tale signs of strep (white spots, sore throat, stomachache, headache, fever) so the on-call doctor sent the test out for the three day test and proactively put him on antibiotics (we’ll find out the results of his test today, so if it comes back negative we’ll just stop the antibiotics). Poor guy had a temperature of almost 104 on Friday, and although that has subsided, he still just wasn’t quite himself.
So it was a bit of a quiet weekend spent mostly at home.
We did have a birthday party that we were invited to on Saturday, so I ended up bringing Alex with me to the party while Jay stayed home with Lucas so he could rest.
You should have seen the mess that my little buddy ended up making with that pop – whew!
Since it was such a low-key weekend, I really don’t have all that much to share, EXCEPT for these incredible, homemade bagels that I made Sunday morning.
Would you believe me if I told you that these were made with only TWO ingredients??
Some of you may be thinking, yes of course, everyone knows about these, Courtney!? But I did not know until just recently, so I had to give them a go.
So what are the ingredients?
- all purpose flour
- nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
That’s it! Well, pretty much. I did give them a little egg wash and also sprinkled them with some salt and sesame seeds. But besides that, it really is just the two ingredients, and both Jay and I were amazed at how good they actually were. Seriously, TRY THEM! (Skinnytaste has a similar easy bagel recipe, and I also found this one, too – I’m sure there are many others out there).
Here’s the quick rundown on the recipe…
2 Ingredient Bagels
Yields 4 small bagels
5 minPrep Time
30 minCook Time
35 minTotal Time
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
- 1 egg, beaten (optional)
- Optional toppings: sesame seeds, salt, everything seasoning
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Mix/knead together until your dough forms. *If sticky, add a little more flour.
- Roll into 4 equal logs then shape into circles on a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper or use a silicone baking mat).
- Bake for 25 minutes.
- Turn oven up to 500 degrees F. Bake an additional 3-5 minutes or until slightly golden. Done!
After I made the bagels, Jay took it from there and made us some seriously delicious bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches.
Gahh, so good!! Have you tried them!?
It appears that it’s a bit older, so I’m not sure how many are still available on Amazon (the link above), but if you google search it, you’ll find some different copies available on ebay, etc. It’s super cute, and it keeps the ingredients really simple, too. I’m excited to have some fun with it! I also came across this Better Homes and Gardens Junior Cookbook which has excellent reviews, too.
Chat soon, my friends!
