The freshest bagels you’ve ever tasted! With Rhodes dough, it couldn’t be easier.


16 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, Dough thawed to room temperature
1/4 cup honey
grated cheese, seeds or spices


In a large saucepan, bring 6 inches of water with honey to a boil. While water comes to a boil, combine 2 rolls together into a nice round ball. Put both pointer fingers through center of the ball and stretch to form a large hole. Repeat with remaining rolls.

Place bagels on a large sprayed baking sheet. Do not let rise.

Slip bagels, one or two at a time into gently boiling water. Boil for 30 seconds on each side. Remove with slotted spoon; drain on cooling rack for a few seconds.

Return to sprayed baking sheet and sprinkle with cheese or seeds if desired. Bake at 375 degrees F 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

    The INSTRUCTIONS say do not let rise. The video says to let rise for 30-40 min… please clarify

      Sorry about that! Thanks for catching that. The video is an older one and we retested our instructions and felt it was better not to let them rise. We are removing that video. Thanks again!
