Bagel Dough in the Bread Machine

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.

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

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, with an hour to rise.

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.

Let rise in a warm place. Covered. Leave be for 30 minutes. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.

Make your own everything bagel seasoning for your own Everything Bagels.
