Give your bread a name and tell us about your recipe.
Cranberry Orange Bagels & Bacon Cheddar Bagels
Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?
I like to start with a solid, established recipe and build from there with twists & improvisation.
Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your bread creation.
The Cranberry Orange Bagels contain dried Wisconsin cranberries. The Bacon Cheddar Bagels were inspired by Culver’s – a Wisconsin institution. I used Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bacon from Wittenberg & Bletsoe’s Sharp Cheddar Cheese from Marathon.
How did you do?
It’s not pretty, but it’s edible.
