So the second batch of bombs is in the oven right now. I was able to do the whole process, egg wash, sprinkling with bagel mix, etc. (little G is asleep with Daddy)
Here are a few pictures that I didn’t have last time:
Cream cheese plug in a dough round:
Bring each corner up, seal around the plug then roll the ball around in your palms to smooth into a dinner-roll shape:
Egg wash time!:
My everything bagel mix was just enough for two batches of bombs, or 16. (C and I ate 2 each already even though neither one of us was particularly hungry!)
I am already obsessed with ways to customize these. Clearly I need a fresh batch of mother dough (once I wash my mixer bowl) then I can try these guys with strawberry/cream cheese plugs and a dusting of confectioners’ sugar. Yummmmm….
Ok, the second batch just came out of the oven and they are perfect! They stayed much more round than the first batch and there was NO oiliness. They were completely dry the whole time and browned really nice and evenly. I can’t wait to have some with my littles in the morning over coffee and chocolate milk!!
