The Milk Bar Monday series is back! It’s been a little over a month since the bagel bombs, but a lot has happened in that month. Hopefully sometime in the next few weeks I can share with you all what I’ve been up to… but that probably won’t be until after graduation (scary!!!!!!)

This week our post is sticking to the savory side of things. We decided to do another Mother Dough recipe, one I have been eyeing for a long time, the volcanoes.

When Christina first describes the volcanoes in her book, she describes them in such a way that you feel like you have to make whatever these bread things are. Any bread item described has having cheese and gravy is on my priority list.

So the basic components of this delicious bread is the mother dough, deeply caramelized onions, scalloped potatoes and cheese. What you do is make a little pizza with a portion of the mother dough, spread some caramelized onions over the dough, top with a square of scalloped potatoes then cover it all completely with the dough. After that cut a little X in the top, stuff some cheese inside and bake.

No big deal, right? Trust me… Not as bad of a recipe as it sounds, but it does take a little time so don’t try and pack it all into one day.

So go ahead, try these for yourself!

This week we are bringing back one of my favorite milk bar recipes, the mother dough.

We first introduced the mother dough when we made the cinnamon bun pie. It got mixed reviews from our crew, but I loved it.

I have been dying to make more of Tosi creations with the mother dough, and we finally got back around to it!

Today we are making Momofuku’s Everything Bagel Bombs with the Bacon, Scallion Cream Cheese Plugs.

…Yes, I know plugs isn’t the most attractive name for a food but just go with it for now.

Before I made my bagel bombs I looked up what The Amateur Gourmet said about his experience making them.
He raved. This raised my hopes for the bagel bombs even higher! These things needed to be … the bomb.

The consensus among the Milk Bar Monday group – utterly delicious. A few of us even chose to eat instead of photograph the majority of them.

Not a fan of bagels? Or cream cheese? Don’t run away so fast. Even my cream cheese hating boyfriend scarfed one down straight out of the oven. That’s saying something.
Don’t forget to check out everyone else bagel bombs!
