Bread Machine Bagel Recipe

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.

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

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.

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.
