Gluten Free Bagels???
Today I was becoming overwelmed with packing and decided to take a break and try to make some bagels. I am allergic to gluten, but I found a recipe from www.recipezaar.com for Gluten Free Bagels (it is #255600 if you want to try it out.)
Well, mine do not resemble bagels, except for the little shinny crust. I had a very difficult time shaping them without them crumbling all apart. So, mine are just big balls of dough. I was very surprized at how good they taste. They do have a strong egg flavor and kind of a weird smell (all gluten free bread smells weird). But, I put butter and some strawberry jam on them and they were good!
I will have to practice on presentation, but if I am just going to eat them myself, I really don't care what they look like. I will probably make them a bit smaller, because one was way too much. Plus they are very high in carbs like most bread, but these are made with potato starch and corn starch - so plenty of starch... But, when you go months without eating bread, these were heavenly!
