Directions

  1. Mix flour, hot water, sugar, yeast, and salt in a large bowl; transfer dough to a work surface and knead for 10 minutes. Place dough in a bowl and let rise for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  3. Form dough into 24 balls; punch a hole in the middle of each ball with a finger, creating a bagel shape. Place bagels on the prepared baking sheet; let rise for 20 minutes.
  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; cook bagels, working in batches, in the boiling water, about 45 seconds per side. Place boiled bagels on a clean towel to drain. Return bagels to the baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and lightly browned, 30 to 35 minutes.

I put a little honey in the boiling water and sprinkled corn muffin mix on the baking sheets.....oh so good! My son and I enjoyed making them together!

A bit salty but VERY GOOD! I only had bread machine yeast so I used that and proofed it first with the water, salt and sugar-I read that it works better that way. I also read that self rising flour works better for bagels so I used that as well. The dough was very dry, tough and hard to work with. It also didn't seem to rise during the first 15 rest. They were tough to shape and then hardly rose even after 40 min. They puffed up while boiling, which was good and baked well. Will definitely make again with some changes that are more like the actually recipe lol :)
