    JQuinn,[p] You do know that Bagels are boiled first... Then they are baked to get the outside brown and crispy..

    Celtic Wolf,
    ...and that the only diff between pretzels and bagels (besides shape) is that pretzels get a lye bath first? without the lye bath, pretzels are funny-shaped bagels, essentially.[p]

    JQuinn,[p]Yes, if you can bake bagels in a regular oven, you can bake them on an egg. I use my XL BGE most of the time for baking breads, including bagels.[p]Good luck,[p]

    JQuinn,[p]I follow the Izzy Cohen bagel recipe verbatim. This recipe can be found in "Breads from the La Brea Bakery", Nancy Silverton, pp.220-224.[p]The book is one of the best on the market.[p]Puj
