I love making home made bagels - I always feel such a sense of accomplishment when I am finished! And I always think, "Darn, I should have doubled the recipe." I made them as written except I made a few smaller ones for my 5 year old son. I topped half with turbinado sugar and cinnamon and the other half with an "everything" mix of sea salt, flax seeds, sesame seeds, poppy seeds and onion flakes. I honestly liked the sweet ones better!!! Next time I make this recipe, I will throw some poppy seeds and onion flakes into the dough. Can't wait for the next time. Thanks for posting!

Directions See How It's Made
- Combine water, sugar, salt, bread flower and yeast in bread machine, and run dough program.
- When the dough is ready, divide into 8 balls on a lightly floured surface. Make a 1" hole in each ball. Place bagels on a greased baking sheet, cover, and let rise for 30 minutes or until they have doubled in size.
- In a pot, bring 8 cups of water to a boil, and add 2 tbsp of sugar. Simmer a few bagels at a time for about 3 minutes, turning to make sure they cook evenly. Return the boiled bagels to the baking sheet.
- This part is optional: Beat the egg, and brush a small amount on the bagel tops, sprinkle with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or cracked wheat, etc.
- Bake at 400F for approximately 25 minutes, or until done.
