Bread Machine Sesame and Poppy Seed Bagels
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
3 cups flour
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
3 quarts boiling water
3 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 egg white
3 tablespoons poppy seeds, or sesame seeds
Place water, salt, sugar, flour and yeast in the bread machine pan in the order by the manufacturer.
Select Dough setting. Mine takes an hour and a half to complete. When done, let dough rest on a floured surface.
Meanwhile, in a pot bring 2 quarts of water to a boil. Stir in 3 tablespoons of sugar.
Cut dough into 9 equal pieces, and roll each piece into a small ball.
Flatten balls. Poke a hole in the middle of each with your thumb. Twirl the dough on your finger or thumb to enlarge the hole, and to even out the dough around the hole. Cover bagels with a clean cloth, and let rest for 10 minutes.
Sprinkle an ungreased baking sheet with cornmeal. Carefully transfer bagels to boiling water. Boil for 1 minute, turning half way through. Drain briefly on clean towel. Arrange boiled bagels on baking sheet. Glaze tops with egg white, and sprinkle with your choice of toppings.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for 20 to 23 minutes, until browned.
All you need it a brick of cream cheese, 2 tbsps honey, and a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Mix together. It helps to soften your cream cheese first, so it mixes better.
