Zac Wolf wouldn't let me make cheesy "the bomb" joke about how good these are but believe me THEY ARE GREAT. He got me the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook over the holidays and the first thing I made was my beloved Corn Cookies. After watching a video of Tosi making bagel bombs they seemed easy enough to give a try as my next recipe out of the book. Note: Everything always looks easier when a pro is doing it but for real these weren't that difficult. In the video she uses a stand mixer but I was still able to make them without one.
The premise is a ball of bagel dough stuffed with cream cheese. Every bite into a bagel bomb yields an awesome flavor explosion (sorry Z, gotta let me slip one pun in there). The bagel is coated in 'everything' seasoning and the cream cheese is flavored with bacon fat, chunks of bacon and chives. Uh what? YES please. These are best warm out of the oven as all hot bagels are.
Momofuku Milk Bar Bagel Bombs For the recipe, head over to Big Fat Baker who also gave these a go and typed up the whole recipe from the book so I don't have to! Thanks bud!
