Here I am, finally I can make it! I am participating in the World Bread Day!!
Thanks so much to Zorra for arranging everything for this event!!!!!
As I’ve been recently to New York (you can see / read the whole set of entries here), I couldn’t wait to eat bagels again. Therefore, my choice for this day was very easy to make. Moreover, I love that NY bagels use to have a lot of different flavors to choose, so I decided to pick my two faves: blueberry and chili & cheese.
Blueberry bagel was paired with blueberry spread (so easy to make!). Also other day I paired it with cream cheese and turkey slices.
Chili & cheese bagels was paired with ham & cheddar cheese (and also once with omelete!)
The following pics depict how I ate them:
I used Peter Reinhart’s recipe for bagels. I find this recipe quite reliable. It is a bit long but worthy! You can find it in english here, in 2 of my favorite blogs: this one and this one. I just added blueberries and chili & cheese right before making the rolls, add these extra flavors in separate bowls and knead a little bit longer to have everything well distributed.
By the way, blueberry bagels get a weird color if the tint of the fruit does not distribute completely in the dough, but it tastes very nice anyway!
About the blueberry spread. The “recipe” is the following:
– Mix 300 gr of cream cheese with 125gr of blueberry jam until getting an spreadable consistency.
It such a nice and soft flavor… you’ll love it!
Happy World Bread Day 2010 to everybody!!!!!!!!!!
