Ever since our local bagel place stopped selling these, I knew I had to develop a Cranberry Orange Bagels Recipe, so I could have them whenever I wanted. Which happens to be a lot. They are my favorite breakfast bagel. I love dried cranberries are a favorite at breakfast time and if you ask my family, orange zest is something I add to most things sweet.

These Cranberry Orange Bagels are so easy to whip up in the bread machine on dough mode, and you can even freeze the dough and make them as you need. I am working on filling up my freezer with goodies so my days aren’t so crazy with dishes, baking and cooking.
