1 cup warm water (110 degrees F)
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
3 cups bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
3 quarts boiling water
3 tablespoons white sugar
corn meal
egg white
poppy seeds
dried onions


Place water, salt, sugar, flour, and yeast in the bread machine pan according to the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough setting.

When dough cycle is complete, let dough rest on a lightly floured surface. Meanwhile, in a large pot bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Stir in 3 tablespoons of sugar.

Cut dough into 9 equal pieces and roll each piece into a small ball. Flatten balls. Poke a hole in the middle of each with your thumb. Twirl the dough on your finger or thumb to enlarge the hole and even out the dough around the hole. Cover bagels with a clean cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.

Carefully transfer bagels to boiling water. Boil for 1 minute, turning half way through. Drain briefly on clean towel. Move boiled bagels to baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal.

Glaze tops with egg white and sprinkle with your choice of toppings. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until well browned.

I can't believe how great these turned out! I never would have thought to use my bread machine to make bagels. If I had, I would have bought one sooner. Only had mine for a few months and clearly I've been missing out.

I just topped the local bakery! These are extremely simple, delicious, but I did add another 1/4 cup of water (making it 1-1/4 cup water) because the dough was way too stiff. They turned out perfect! I added poppy seeds, onion flakes, garlic time I will add cinnamon and blueberries to the dough! Yummm!

Awesome - this is the first time I tried making bagels and they really turned out well. Very easy too!
I did find that I needed to add more water to get a nice dough ball. I can't wait to start playing with variations of this!

I've made these several times and love them. I top them with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and onion flakes. I also added dried cranberries to one batch as it mixed and everyone loved them.

These are GREAT!!!! I made few onion ones for my husband and few plain for me. It says it is a 3 but I thought they were a breeze. I can never go back to store bagles again!!
