DIRECTIONS

  • In large mixer bowl, combine yeast and 1 3/4 cups of flour.
  • Combine water, sugar and salt. Add to yeast mixture. Beat at low speed of electric mixer for 1/2 minute, scraping sides of bowl constantly.
  • Beat 3 minutes at high speed.
  • By hand, stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough.
  • Turn out on lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Cover, let rest 15 minutes.
  • Cut into 12 portions and shape into smooth balls.
  • Punch a hole in center of each with a floured finger.
  • Pull gently to enlarge hole, working each bagel into uniform shape. Cover, let rise 20 minutes.
  • In large kettle combine 1 gallon water and 1 tablespoon sugar; bring to a boil.
  • Reduce temperature to a simmer.
  • Cook bagels 4 or 5 at a time, for 7 minutes, turning once. Drain and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake in 375 degrees oven for 30 to 35 minutes.
