"Panera" type bagels at home?
I'm looking for a bagel recipe that yields bagels like you would get from Panera Bread or somewhere like that - I have made several different recipes and none of them have turned out. I made some sourdough ones yesterday and even retarded them overnight hoping for the blistery surface, etc. and they are smooth surfaced and although they are chewy and taste ok, they are more like a supermarket bagel. The recipe I used called for a lot of starter (as opposed to the 2T. used in most of my recipes)... I don't know where to start for a recipe. Any suggestions would be welcome. TIA.
