Bread Machine Bagels

004This recipe is absolutely delicious!!  A friend gave it to me over a year ago, but I had never made it until today.  Eaten just out of the oven or cooled and served with cream cheese, these bagels are great for breakfast or any time of day!

Put the ingredients into your bread machine according to manufacturer’s instructions and use the dough setting.

1 c. very warm water

1/2 Tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

3-1/4 c. flour

1/2 Tbsp. garlic powder

1/2 Tbsp. yeast

1 egg white, beaten

toppings such as sesame seeds, coarse salt, garlic, etc.

After your machine is done, divide the dough into 8 equal pieces.  Slightly flatten each piece into rounds and use your thumbs to make a one-inch hole in the middle of each.  Place on greased baking sheet, cover and let rise about 30 minutes.

In a large sauce pan, bring about 8 cups of water and 2 Tbsp. sugar to a boil.  Gently place just 2 bagels at a time into the boiling water and simmer for about 3 minutes, turning only once.  Using a slotted spoon remove bagels from water and place on greased baking sheet.  Brush each with egg white and sprinkle with topping of your choice.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Cool on wire rack.
