Bread Machine Bagel Recipe

My bagels rarely have holes in them. And that’s ok with us because it just gives us more surface for spreads. I have been making this bread machine bagel recipe for years, at least 12 years in fact. We love them, and they are super easy to make using your bread machine.

It had been a little while since I made bagels again, but then I started making pans of baked eggs. Now we have instant bagel egg sandwiches for breakfast on the go. Or at least a filling, delicious breakfast that my kids can grab themselves in the morning while I drink my coffee.

What You Need:

  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1 1/4 c warm water
  • 1/4 c margarine, softened
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 3/4 c flour
  • 1 tsp salt

How to Make Bread Machine Bagels

Add yeast and sugar to your bread machine pan, and add the warm water. Let it sit for a few minutes before adding anything else to give the yeast time to activate.

Add in the remaining ingredients. Saving the salt for last. Salt can kill your yeast leaving you with flat dough, and no one wants flat bagels when you can have fluffy bagels.

Set on a dough setting. I use the bread dough setting which is 23 minutes long.

Cut into 12 equal pieces. Shape into bagels, I do this by pressing my thumbs into the center of the pieces and stretching them into exaggerated bagels. Larger holes give room for the dough to rise.

Let rise in a warm place. Covered. Leave be for 30 minutes.

Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.

The majority of the time that I make bagels I do an egg yolk wash over the top of the bagels and sprinkle on some everything bagel seasoning that I make.
