Homemade Bagels, Take 2

John was generous enough to gift me a bagel-making class for Christmas, and it was terrific! I learned how to make bagels two ways: using pre-fermented dough, and using a poolish (a quicker type of starter). I’m going to list both recipes here; I actually have another batch of pre-fermented dough in the fridge right now, and iI’m going to try incorporating it into homemade Italian bread this week.

Chicken with Garlic and Parsley

Nice weeknight meal from Jacques Pepin. The Wondra flour is key. Try not to crowd the pan like I did.

Mushroom Soba

This wasn’t bad but tasted slightly unbalanced to me. We didn’t end up eating the leftovers. Saving for posterity on account of the challenge.

Recipe Variation: Cheesesteak Stromboli

I made several variations of stromboli for a recent party. Beyond my usual two (pepperoni and chicken), I threw in a vegetarian version and a Philly cheesesteak one. The vegetarian one didn’t turn out that great (I think I used too much ricotta) but the Philly cheesesteak was nice. Just sautee some shaved beef, green peppers, and onions and use that along with provolone cheese for your filling. Don’t go with too sharp of a provolone – I found that takes over the flavor of the stromboli too much.
