    Kzim4's Note:

    My family loves onion bagels, but they are expensive to buy for as many as they would eat, so I found this recipe online.

    1. 1
      Combine warm water, yeast and 3 tablespoons sugar. Let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. Stir in salt and onion.
    2. 2
      Gradually mix in 4 cups of flour, beat on medium speed for 5 minutes. Add enough of remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Turn onto floured board and knead until smooth and no longre sticky (about 15 minutes), or knead in heavy-duty mixer for 2 minutes, adding more flour as needed.
    3. 3
      Place in greased bowl, turning to coat all sides. Cover; let rise until doubled in size (about 40 minutes).
    4. 4
      Knead dough lightly and divide into 12 equal pieces. To shape, knead each piece, forming it into a smooth ballHolding ball with both hands,poke your thumbs through the center. With one thumb in hole, work around the perimiter, shaping like a doughnut 3-3 1/2 inches across.
    5. 5
      Place shaped bagel on lightly floured board, cover lightly and let stand in a warm place for 20 minutes.
    6. 6
      Bring 3 quarts of water and remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar to boiling in a large kettle (like a dutch oven). Adjust heat to keep it gently boiling.
    7. 7
      Lightly grease a baking sheet and sprinle with cornmeal. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
    8. 8
      Gently lift one bagel at a time and drop into water, boiling 4-5 at a time (depending on the size of your pot). Boil for 5 minutes, turning often.
    9. 9
      Lift out with a slotted spoon, drain breifly on a towel and then place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all bagels are boiled.
    10. 10
      Combine egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water and brush on top of bagels.
    11. 11
      Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until well browned and crusty. Cool on rack.
    12. 12
      **I like to have smaller bagels, so I divide my dough into 16 pieces and bake for 30-35 minutes.

      This recipe was great, the taste was REALLY good and they looked beautiful. For my taste and also my boyfriend's the crust was a little too crispy so next time I will be boiling them for a little bit less, maybe 3 minutes.

      Very good recipe. I made bagel dogs. I halved the recipe, and had enough dough for<br/>8 regular sized hot dogs, but were still pretty 'doughy', probably could have stretched the<br/>dough to make 10 bagel dogs.<br/>Baked for 40 minutes, came out great!!

      Wow! I love bagels but have never tried making them before. I live in Nashville, and good bagels are hard to find here. I'm pleased with the results. They have just the right amount of oniony-ness, and the texture is great. This recipe will be going into my regular rotation. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Thanks for sharing!!
