TWD – Tuesdays with Dorie
Overall I was pretty pleased with this recipe. It was simple and straightforward to follow. I did mince and sauté all the onions at one time, dividing them up later. I also used olive oil to sauté the onions, as opposed to vegetable shortening.
When mixing the sponge, I also just mixed it with a wooden spoon, rather than using a stand mixer. The sponge still worked beautifully, puffing and bubbling up quickly.
When shaping the bialys I did not need to use a cornmeal coated towel. Shaping went smoothly and quickly, plus I only made half the recipe.
My bialys did puff a lot in the center, regardless of constantly poking the centers with a fork. Since they puffed so much, the onion-poppy seed mixture tumbles off a bit when eating.
I loved the sautéed onion-poppy seed mixture, which brought a great flavor to the soft, tender bialys.
