Lunch : Bagel Dogs!
So, something that I used to eat as a kid, and when I say kid, I mean 14 year old. Were Bagel Dogs. My mom got them from the Schwan's Man, when he dropped off our milk. Yeah, we had a milk man. My mom was busy doing whatever work she was doing, and it was easier to make sure that we had milk in the house if we had someone drop it off. I guess.
Either way. Bagel Dogs. I came across a pin on the Pintrest, which brought me to Circle B Kitchen's blog post.
I made them and can cross them off the list of wish to re-create at home. But I will never do it again. I am sure the original recipe is fine, and it was probably more of user error or something. But they were way too much work, and took way too long to make. And I burned my little fingers.
So, for a true bagel, you need to boil it before you bake it. All of my hot dogs fell out of their wrappers. So once I thought they were boiled sufficiently, I took them out, and burned my fingers trying to put them back in their jackets, and getting them to seal up as they dried a little.
They don't look terrible, other than the not being too brown, they were chewy, the salt and seeds were delicious. I didn't know what else to serve it with, all I could think about was Kraft Cheese and Macaroni. And then I decided to bust open a can of fruit cocktail for good measure. We also dipped the Bagel Dogs in traditional hot dog condiments.
I am putting this in the Fail column.
Have you made them and had better results?
