Rusk with Bagel Garlic Butter & Orange Peel

I like to bake bread, so I bake it myself exclusively, but when I found half-priced bagels at the supermarket, I couldn’t resist buying them.

I wanted to enjoy the bagels in various ways, so I made rusks out of them. French bread rusks are common, but bagel rusks gave a different texture than French bread rusks.

One of the nice things about homemade rusks is that you can enjoy a variety of flavors. The classic sugar butter is great, but this time I’ll introduce a garlic butter flavor that is perfect for snacking, and an orange peel flavor with a delicious sweet and bitter taste.

You can’t go wrong with garlic butter. If you like, you can sprinkle black pepper or parsley on it.

For the orange peel, I used the same method I used for voisilmäpulla. The strategy was to mix sugar and orange peel and heat it up, which would become like marmalade. It worked beautifully again this time.

Voisilmäpulla, butter eye bun, is popular in Finland. I added lemon, orange, and lime to give this butter and sugar rich bun a fresh twist.

If the garlic butter is not cooked long enough, the garlic will remain pungent. It is ready to eat when it starts to turn slightly brown.
The orange peel will burn if it is cooked too long. Remove the peel when the sugar has melted and small bubbles start to appear.
