This is a great recipe, that I had issues with the first time I made it. I didn't realize how stiff the dough needed to be, so they fell. They tasted delicious but didn't look so hot. I've now made this recipe 5 times and i'm really getting the hang of it. One addition that I make that has a good flavor is that I use 1 tablespoon less sugar but add 2 Tbsp. barly malt powder; it gives it that slight yeasty flavor that I enjoy in freshly made bagel shop bagels.

We loved these bagels. I had tried making a different recipe prior to this one. This was superior to those and very easy to make. Thanks

These tasted great! This was my first time making bagels, and they turned out perfect. They do look a little deformed, but that is my fault, I should have shaped them better. The directions were very easy to follow and they come out with the perfect texture! Thank you for the recipe!

These were both quick and delicious. I made a few different batches. One batch I added 1/4 cup minced onion and a tsp of garlic powder. Another was oat bran/flax. I subbed one cup of the flour with one cup of oat bran and about 3 tbsp of flax in place of 1/2 the oil. Yet another batch was blueberry. I used 1/2 cup of sugar and put about 1.5 cups of frozen blueberries. All came out peeeerrrrfect! I think I have a new standard recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
