Egg Bagels

Submitted by: BABYANGELEYES

Introduction

I found this recipe on the internet when I was looking for a healtier alternative to store bought bagels.

This is a good substitute for those who love bagels but hate all the calories and the sodium in the store bought ones. The bagels aren't as sweet as the ones in the store, but I'm sure you could add a bit more sugar to the dough if you wanted to make them sweeter.

The recipe is fairly easy to make. The first time I made it I just cut the recipe in half (mainly because I didn't think my family would eat all 30 bagels before they turned).

You can also adjust the recipe to include toppings or add-ins to customize your bagel (not included in the nutritional information calculation). Some suggestions would be sesame seeds (dip into sesame seeds once the egg yolk wash is on the bagel), cinnamon & raisins, blueberry, or anything and everything you'd like to put in.

Enjoy! =)

Number of Servings: 30

Ingredients

    4 medium eggs
    2 packets yeast
    8 cups flour
    2 cups warm water
    1/4 cup salad oil (i.e. vegetable oil)
    1 tbsp salt
    1 tbsp sugar

Directions

Mix together all ingrediants, then knead for about 10 minutes. Place the mixture in a greased bowl, then cover and allow to rise in a warm spot for 20 mintues. Once risen punch down & divide into 30 pieces. Shape into bagels (either by making a circle and cutting out the middle with a cookie cutter, or by rolling out the dough into a log and pinching the ends together - ensure that ends stick together well!) Allow to rise for 15 minutes.

Drop bagels into boiling water and boil for 3 minutes, turning once at approximately 1.5 mintues. Place on greased sheets (or sheets sprinkled with corn meal) & brush on an egg yolk glaze.

Bake at 450F for 20-25, or until the bagels are golden brown on the outside.

Makes 30 bagels.

    These tasted great but took a lot longer to make than I had thought. Is a great recipe to make on a sunday night and use the bagels for the week. Prep and cook time took about 2 hrs :( - 10/14/11

  • This was my first time making bagels. I was extremely pleased on how these turned out. I made these a little healthier by substituting the sugar with stevia. No sugar! I put nuts in some and chocolate chips in others. I also gave a couple a sesame seed topping. I ate mine with strawberry jam.Delish! - 6/5/10
