This was my first time making bagels and they turned out great...well at least I thought so! As you can see in the picture you cant see any holes in the middle. I did put holes in them but they obviously were not big enough. So make sure your holes are at least an inch.


1 t. active dry yeast
1 1/4 c. warm milk
1/4 c. butter, softened
2 T. sugar
1 t. salt
1 egg yolk
3 3/4 c. flour
1 t. sugar

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add butter, sugar, salt, and egg yoke and mix. Add flour and knead for 8 minutes. I just put it in the kitchen aid and it gets the job done. Place in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise for 1 hour. Shape into 12 balls and place 1 in. holes in the middle. In a large saucepan bring water and 1 t. sugar to a boil. Drop bagels in boiling water and take them out after a 10 seconds. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
