2 packages
dry yeast

1 cups

warm water (105 to 115)

3 cups

bread flour

3 tbl
1 tsp

water (to boil the bagels)
egg white

poppy seeds

kosher salt

sesame seeds

These aren't pretty but they sure are good. 

Put the yeast, sugar, and water into the mixing bowl and mix with a fork.  Let is sit for 2 or 3 minutes.  Add the flour and salt.  Using a spiral dough hook set the mixer to speed 2 and mix everything together to form the dough. Let the mixer knead the dough for 5 more minutes.  Spray a bowl with cooking spray, drop the dough into the bowl, spray the outside of the dough with cooking spray, cover with plastic wrap, and put it in a warm place until it is doubled.  Take the dough out and cut it into 8 equal pieces.  Bring enough water into a shallow pot or frying pan to boil 4 bagels at a time to a boil.  Heat the oven to 350. Push your thumb through the center of each piece of dough and stretch the dough into a bagel shape.  Drop the bagels into the boiling water and boil for 45 seconds, flip and boil for 45 more seconds, remove with a slotted spatula, place on a rack to drain.  Repeat with the remaining bagels.  Brush the top of each bagel with the egg white and sprinkle with seeds or salt.  Place on a greased flat pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
