Finally--homemade bagels that are actually thick enough to slice! These are easy, and very tasty. I sprinkled half of them with poppy seeds and half with minced onion. It's unfortunate that there's no baking time listed. Even though baking times are only a guideline, I could have used that guideline. I had to rely on guesswork, and ended up having to put the bagels back in the oven because they weren't done. I would say somewhere between 30-40 minutes would be right. I also think the water, sugar and cornmeal should have been listed in the ingredients (or near the top since they shouldn't be included in the nutritional analysis). I knew to use them because I've attempted bagels before, and because I read recipes several times before I make the dish, but an inexperienced baker might have problems. But the bagels are excellent; I might try the recipe with a little rye flour next time. Made for 1-2-3 Hits Tag.

First time making bagels and this was an excellent recipe. The only thing I did differently was to use organic ingredients instead of normal ingredients. Tasted great!

This is the second time I've made the recipe. Look, it's not knocking my socks off or anything. It's okay. It's close to a bagel. It's tough. It's missing the crispy outside and creamy/chewy inside that makes a bagel really great, though. It's okay. The convienence of a bread machine is a big plus. And they taste good, if not plain.

These are the best ever, most fantastic, super delicious bagels I have ever had....better than Panera even! I have been struggling to find a decent bagel recipe and these are by far the most excellent bagels I have ever tasted! Thank-you so much for a wonderful recipe!

It was my first time baking bagels. And it was a success. It was easy to do. It's just another time I'll do a bigger hole cause when they rise, the hole dissapeared LOL. I baked them near 35 minutes. They were golden and under they were soft a little bit. I guess that's the way they should be. They were great fresh from the oven and the next morning toasted with butter. Thanks Mary.

I was unsure how long to bake these and really am not sure how long I did bake them. I'm not sure it was long enough. They tasted ok, but I like my local bagel shop's a lot better.
