4-1/2 cups flour
2 pkgs. active dry yeast (approx. 4-1/2 tsp)
1-1/2 cups warm water (110-115 F)
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp sugar


In mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups of the flour and the yeast. Combine warm water, 3 tbsp sugar, and salt. Pour over flour mixture. Beat with electric mixer at low speed. Stir in as much remaining flour as you can mix in with a spoon.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth & elastic, 6 to 8 minutes total. Cover, let rise 20 minutes. Broil 5 inches from heat 3 to 4 minutes, turning once (tops should not brown).

Heat 1 gallon water and the 1 tbsp sugar to boiling; reduce heat. Cook 4 or 5 bagels at a time for 7 min., turning once.

Drain. Place on greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 F for 25 - 30 minutes.

This is the basic recipe. Add onions, etc., to dough for a variety. Or, before baking, brush with beaten egg & sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds, etc.
