Quick Bagels with 2-ingredient Bread Dough

Quick bagels with 2-ingredient bread dough

It’s freezing and the weather forecast predicts even more severe cold weather coming up next week. All I want to do, is hide in my house, rolled in a thick blanket and hibernate. But… I’ll have to get outside and get food. Well, I also will have to get to work and get the kids to school. But I still can dream about hibernating. And the food part really isn’t that difficult. Just stock up enough and we’d be able to survive for a while. Especially stocking up on Greek yogurt and self-raising flour. Why? To make these super quick bagels of course!

2 ingredient dough

A dough made out of two ingredients? Yep. Just google it. You’ll get uncountable hits. You can make bread, biscuits/rolls, pizza and quite a few more with just two ingredients: Greek yogurt and self-raising flour. Put these two together and let your creativity go wild. I had made 2-ingredient pizza dough before and fresh rolls on a Sunday morning. It takes just minutes to put together, bake for 20-30 minutes and you’re ready to dish up. Lifer saver, if you don’t want to go outside.

Quick Bagels

These quick bagels are a just a very simple variation on the theme. I added a seed mix on top (saw this idea on Taste.co), but you can leave them plain or add different toppings (cheese is a good one, too). In literally half an hour, we had fresh bagels on the table. So, yeah, if we would go in hiding and sit out the freezing cold, I would be able to survive on yogurt and flour.

Ingredients

275 g self-raising flour (plus extra for dusting)

250 g Greek yogurt

½ tsp salt

1 egg

Seed mix (or toppings of your choice)

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix the flour, yogurt and salt in a bowl. You can start to mix with a wooden spoon. When it gets harder to ‘stir’, get you hands dirty and kneed until a dough forms.

Lightly flour your work surface and take the dough out of the bowl.

Put dough on a lightly floured surface

If needed, kneed a couple of times, then flatten the dough and form a disc.

Cut the dough in four equal pieces.

Roll each piece into a log and shape that log into a bagel.

Beat the egg and brush the top of the bagels with the egg wash.

Brush each bagel with egg wash

Generously sprinkle with the seed mix or topping of your choice.

Sprinkle seed mix generously on top

Bake ca. 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Baked bagels

Best eaten when freshly baked or even straight from the oven when still hot, then they are at their best.

PS: this makes 4 bagels, but the recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled.

PPS: another quick bread option is this Greek Yogurt Soda Bread.
