What you need:
- 1 1/8 c. warm water
- 1 1/2 t. salt
- 2 T sugar
- 3 c. flour
- 2 1/4 t. yeast
Add ingredients in order listed to the bread machine. Run on a "Dough" cycle. After the cycle finished take out the dough and let it rest for a minute.
Form the dough into 9 balls. Put your finger through the middles.
Flatten the bagels around the holes. Let them rise for 10 minutes in a warm place with a clean towel over the top.
Drop the bagels in boiling water with a little bit of sugar added. Boil for 1 minute on each side of the bagels. After you remove the bagel from the water lay on a greased, cornmeal sprinkled cookie sheet. Brush the tops with eggwhites.
Bake at 375F for 20 -25 or until browned on the tops. They aren't the prettiest to look at but they sure are light and fluffy!
