Homemade Bagels...Yum!

Homemade bagels are chewy and delicious, and with several flavors to choose from, you can offer your family a variety. I love to use cinnamon and raisins, sundried tomatoes with basil, or just whole wheat. They make great lunch sandwiches, and I know that when I make them at home, they'll always be fresh. I love using my Bosch Mixer! Here's my bagel recipe:

Anitra's Bagel Recipe

3 cups warm water
2 tbsp. yeast
1/3 cup sugar
4 tsp. salt
6-7 cups flour
egg white
Poppy seeds, sesame seeds (optional)

In a heavy duty mixer, combine the water, 1/3 cup sugar, yeast, salt, and 3 cups of flour. Mix 1 minute, adding more flour and mixing again until the dough is soft and elastic, about 8 minutes. Cover the dough and allow to rise 20 minutes. Divide the dough into 16 equal portions, then shape the bagels by first shaping the dough into a ball, then inserting your thumb through the dough ball to form a donut-shape. Stretch the hole to about 1 inch, then place the bagel onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat with each dough ball. Cover the bagels and allow them to rise another 20 minutes. In the meantime, bring 8 cups of water to a boil, and add 3 tbsp. sugar. When the bagels are done rising, carefully remove them from the baking sheet and place them in the boiling water. Only boil 3 bagels at a time, as they will expand. Boil the bagels on each side for about 30 seconds, then remove the bagels and allow them to drain on a dishtowel. Transfer the bagels then to a lightly greased baking sheet, and brush with an egg white/water wash. Sprinkle with desired toppings, and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 25 to 3o minutes or until golden. Cool completely.
