Pancakes, bagels, donuts, French toast, frittatas — you have so many options when it comes to choosing what to make for breakfast. But if you really want the ultimate in breakfast fare, go for these beautiful creations: pretzel bagel donuts.
Yes, these are herby cream cheese-filled pretzel bagels, made to look like donuts. You whip up a standard dough, mix in sautéed garlic and onion, then form into donut-shaped balls. Dip each ball into a food-grade lye solution — necessary for real-deal pretzels! — and sprinkle with a mixture of salt; sesame, poppy, and flax seeds; and chives before popping them into the oven.
Pipe some cream cheese (mixed with fresh basil, rosemary, thyme, and oregano) into the center of the baked bagel donuts once they've cooled.
With this recipe, you'll never agonize over what to make for breakfast again.
