    Dee Coonhound's Note:

    A simple basic recipe. Time is approximate due to kneeding and rising of dough.

    1. 1
      Dissolve yeast in water. Add sugar and salt, dissolve. Lightly beat in the 1 eggs. Stir well. Add 2 cups of flour, stirring to make a smooth thin dough. Then add remainder of flour to make a stiff dough. Knead this dough 15 minutes. Then set aside covered to rise for 40 minutes.
    2. 2
      Divide the dough into 10 equal parts and knead each separately to form a small ball. Push a floured finger through the center of each and twirl it around your finger to make a bagel with about a 1 to 1 1/2" hole and an outer diameter of about 3". Let rise for 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      Bring to boil 3 qts. water with 1 tablespoon sugar in it. Boil 4-5 bagels at a time for 4 minutes each, turning carefully. Dry on a paper towel. Mix the egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water, beat well, and brush the bagels with the mixture. Bake 20-30 minutes at 400oF (until brown). Don't expose to direct fire in the oven.

      Great recipe! Bagels came out better for the third time time around when I boiled them for only one minute each side instead of the full two minutes. Needed to add a little more flour as well. Also I used an egg white wash instead, it gave them a nice glossy look!
