Wheat Bagels Recipe [Bread Machine]

Yields6 ServingsPrep Time5 minsCook Time3 hrsTotal Time3 hrs 5 mins

These wheat bagels are spectacular and also incredibly easy. Add a touch of honey to your dough mix for a little extra sweetness, everything bagel seasoning, and smoked salmon to create an extraordinarily elegant brunch.

Bagels
 1 ¼ cups Water
 1 ¾ cups Bread Flour
 1 ¾ cups Whole Wheat Flour
 2 tbsp Sugar
 1 ½ tsp Dry Active Yeast
Egg Wash
 1 Egg White
 3 tbsp Water
1

Setup your bread machine and add ingredients into your bread pan, starting with liquids first, followed by flour, sugar, and then yeast. Optionally, you can substitute 1 tbsp sugar for 2 tbsp honey.

2

Select a regular dough setting and click start. (Bread machines vary - if you do not have a bagel button, simply select a standard/quick dough. We only want the machine to knead the dough and let it rise, and stop before baking).

3

Remove the wheat dough from the bread pan and divide it into 6-8 even portions (6 if you want bigger bagels or 8 if you want regular sized).

4

Shape each dough into a ball, place on a greased baking pan, and let rest for 30 minutes.

5

Roll the dough on the counter into a rope shape; form it into a circle to shape the bagel and gently press the two ends together. If you can't get them to stick, add a little water to both ends and try again.

6

Let rest at room temperature for about 2 hours as the dough rises (if your house is very warm, this may only take an hour).

7

Pre-heat oven to 400F and bring 2-3 quarts of water to boil. Place wheat bagels into water (2-3 at a time) and boil 1 minute per side.

8

Place wheat bagels back on baking tray, lightly brush wheat bagels with egg wash, and add any seasonings as desired.

9

Bake wheat bagels in pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.

10

Add your favorite toppings, such as poppy or sesame seeds. I also added cream cheese, smoked salmon/lox, red onion, tomato, and dill. Enjoy!
