Q&A with HeirloomImprint

Lisamariet asked:
What was your formula?? I want to make these! With cheese on top... and some chilli in them... I had chili bagels once... it is nice!
HeirloomImprint answered:
Hi, LisaMarie. I got this from the French Culinary Institute's Bread book (http://www.amazon.com/Fundamental-Techniques-Classic-Bread-Baking/dp/158479934X). My mistake is U used diastatic malt (powder) instead of malt syrup and I added too much gluten powder to compensate for my lack of high-gluten flour. They were good, but I'm still tweaking on this one, so I don't have a 'great' formula to post yet.
