Bagels from Scratch!

I love bagels. I do not, however, love the pricetag on bagels. The solution? Homemade!

The Ingredients...
...1 c. water
...1 1/2 t. salt
...2 T. white sugar
...3 c. flour
...2 1/4 t. yeast


Place ingredients in bread maker in order listed. Set to dough setting and let run cycle. When cycle is finished, let dough rest 5 min. on lightly floured surface. Divide dough into 9 sections, and roll into balls. Poke hole in middle of each ball and form into bagel shape. Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Three at a time, boil the bagels for one minute, turning after 30 seconds. Let drain on clean dish towel. Place onto baking sheet lightly dusted with cornmeal. Bake at 375* for 20 minutes.

My Thoughts...
So good! And the best part? These only cost 32c for the whole batch as opposed to $1.19 and up for a pack of 5 at the grocery store! I will definetely start making these myself, especially since it's a really easy process! Next time I think I will try adding some garlic or onion and make a flavored bagel!

cinnamon and raisin is also a great combination -- or sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the outside before baking ... yum.

I was thinking of doing cinnamon and raisn...and perhaps maybe an onion type flavor too? I need to do some research into this :)

God Bless!
