How to make it

  • Put the ingredients in the order listed above into your bread machine baking pan.
  • Set the program to dough.
  • When the cycle has finished, transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and divide into 8 equal sized pieces.
  • Shape each piece into a sausage shape with tapered ends measuring about 9 inches in length.
  • Working with a piece at a time, join the ends together to make a circle.
  • Then pinch them gently to seal them.
  • Place the circles on a lightly oiled cookie sheet, leaving enough room between them for each to rise.
  • Cover the circles with a clean dish towel and leave them to rise for about 20 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 .
  • Finely chop enough onion to make a 1/4 cup. Saute in a bit of butter.
  • Put the onions aside.
  • Bring a large pan of water to boil.
  • Add the sugar and stir the water until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Place 2 bagels in the boiling water and let them cook for about 30 seconds on each side.
  • Continue until all bagels have been in the water for a total of 1 minute.
  • Turn them with a slotted spoon.
  • Lift each bagel out of the water, gently shaking it as you do so to remove as much water as possible.
  • Return the bagels to the baking tray.
  • Beat the egg yolk with the water, then brush this mixture over each of the bagels.
  • Sprinkle the sauted onions over the bagels.
  • Bake the bagels in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until they are golden.
  • Transfer the bagels to a wire rack and leave them to cool.

    Thanks for the feedback borinda! They were quite close to what I could get back home and I think we will be making them again. Would like to experiment a bit with some other bagel recipes and/or make this one again.
