  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and lightly spray with olive oil spray. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the yoghurt and stir with a round–bladed knife until a soft, crumbly dough forms. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 1–2 mins or until smooth.

  2. Step 2

    Divide dough into 8 even portions. Roll each portion into a 20cm-long log. Join and pinch the ends of the log to form a doughnut shape. Repeat with remaining logs to make 8 bagels. Place on the lined tray. Lightly brush with egg and sprinkle with bagel seasoning.

  3. Step 3

    Bake for 15-20 mins or until golden and the bagels sound hollow when gently tapped.

  4. Step 4

    Set aside to cool slightly. Serve warm with cream cheese.

Recipe tip

FIND ME... Featuring garlic, onion, and sesame, find bagel seasoning in the spice section. 

Buy it right
Did you know that all Coles Brand shell eggs are cage-free? Make sure to grab a carton of Coles Australian Free Range Eggs.  

Store it right
To maximise freshness, keep the remaining eggs in their carton and store on a shelf in the fridge rather than in the fridge door – where the changes in temperature can make them go off faster.

Cook it right
Making scrambled eggs? For a fluffy result, cook gently over low heat. 

Sweet swap
For sweet bagels, add 1 tsp sugar to the dough mixture, and swap the bagel seasoning for a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.
