Bread Machine Bagels

I have been making batches of these like a crazy woman.  They are easy and so so so good.  And the best thing is that they don't cost $14 a dozen.  I bet they come in under $1.

This recipe is from AllRecipes and I use my Zojirushi Breadmaker...I love that thing.  The recipe makes about 8 bagels.  Last week I doubled it, and the bread maker handled it fine.

1 cup warm water
3 cups of bread flour
2 TBS white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
3 TBS sugar
1 TSP cornmeal
1 egg white
Toppings if wish:  shredded asiago cheese, poppy seeds, dried onion flakes, rock salt, cinnamon sugar...

1.  I add the first 5 ingredients in the order listed.  Set on Dough Cycle.  When complete, place dough on a lightly floured surface. Shape into 8-10 balls, flatten them, and then poke hole in the middle.  (Make it big, because dough will rise.)


2. Cover bagels with a clean dish towel, and let rise.  Mine take about 30-60 minutes to get rise.  Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil.  Dissolve 3 TBS of sugar in boiling water.


3. Sprinkle an ungreased cookie sheet with cornmeal.  Heat oven to 375.
Transfer bagels to boiling water.  (My pot holds about 4 at a time.)  Boil for 1 minute, turning halfway through.  Remove bagels and place on dish towel to drain.

4. Arrange boiled bagels on baking sheet. Glaze top with egg white.

My kids  love asiago cheese bagels, so I will grate some of that and sprinkle on top.
They also love "everything" bagels:  I mix up some poppy seeds, dried onion flakes, and a teeny bit of coarse salt. I will dip the top of the bagel in the egg white, and then dip it in the "everything mixture".  We haven't tried cinnamon sugar yet, but I bet that would be good.

5. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

  10. These looks SO yummy and I love how you boil them in water, not oil. =) My 11 year old daughter just asked me if we could buy bagels and I said no because they are just too expensive and with 7 kids, well, they don't last. So she spent $3 of her own money to buy her own package, lol! I'm going to make these for their after school snack and see what they think. Thanks!!

  14. Do you think you could make these without a bread maker? I assume let them rise on low heat in the oven???

  19. I think they would work without the bread maker, just let them rise twice, once as dough, then after you shape them into bagels.

  22. These look good. Do you know if you can swap for wheat flour? I'm looking for a wheat bagel recipe.

  23. @Alissa

    You should be able to do this with wheat flour -- My recipe for wheat bread dough is as follows: 1 cup AP flour, 1 3/4 cup wheat pastry flour, 1/4 wheat gluten. Using all whole wheat makes your bread too heavy. The whole wheat pastry flour is a little finer and "lighter" than regular whole wheat.

  25. I was wondering if I could use all purpose flour as opposed to bread flour. I don't like buying different kinds of flour. Thanks

  26. We just made these and they were super easy. BUT- the bagels were completely stuck to the pan after coming out of the oven. We used an ungreased cookie sheet sprinkled with cornmeal and baked at 375 for 20 min. I really had to scrape them off with a metal spatula. I would use this recipe again, but spray the pan with non-stick spray first
