We all know how boring breakfast can be – day in, day out, it’s the same old thing.
But what if you took your favorite breakfast foods and made them, well, a little more colorful?
This recipe sheds a whole new light on one of my all-time favorite breakfasts – bagels and cream cheese. Even bagels can get a little blah, though. These Double Rainbow Bagels
are sure to brighten the breakfast table!
Though some of this recipe is best left to the grownups (read: boiling pot!), mixing fun rainbow colors into the dough is a great activity if you have any little hands in your household. They can help you dye the dough pieces all one color, or mix it up and watch the reds and blues turn purple, the yellows and reds turn orange, or the blues and greens turn turquoise!
Just be sure to wear gloves when working with the food dye, or you’ll have leftover rainbow all over your hands.
And for those without little hands around to help, well, who says you have to be a kid to enjoy this recipe? It’s fun for everyone to see a rainbow served up for breakfast.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Once you’ve made your own, homemade batch of bagels, it’s hard to go back to the store-bought variety.
Homemade bagels are soft, with that telltale chewy crust they develop after simmering in the hot water. When served fresh from the oven – with a smearing of rainbow-colored cream cheese, for the double rainbow effect! – they’re absolutely delicious.Stephanie (aka Girl versus Dough) joined Tablespoon to share her adventures in the kitchen.
