Flour | The most important thing about the flour is that you need to use self-rising flour. Nothing else will work and won’t give the bagels the right texture.
Yogurt | It’s as equally as important to use Greek yogurt. If you don’t have Greek, you could swap it for plain regular yogurt, but the texture will be a little bit off.
Egg White | You don’t need the entire egg, just the egg white. It’s just an egg wash and gives the seasoning something to hold on to.
Seasonings are optional!
👩🍳 How To Make
Step 1: Heat the oven and grab your stand mixer. Combine the flour and yogurt together. Knead the bagel dough for 6 minutes.
Note: Add more flour if needed. You can knead it by hand if you don’t have a mixer. This Greek yogurt bagel recipe does take time to knead together so be patient.
Step 2: Once mixed form 6 dough balls and form the bagels. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and add the bagels.
Step 3: Brush each bagel with egg white then add the bagel seasoning. Bake for 10-14 minutes. Or until the bagels are done.
Step 4: Serve these three ingredient bagels warm from the oven, or allow them to cool a bit.
