3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp yeast
1 tsp salt
1 cup + 2-3tbsp hot water
One beaten egg for the egg wash
Mix all ingredients except the egg. The wetter the dough, the crispier the bagels. Knead dough for 5-10 minutes on a lightly floured surface. Let rest for 30 minutes. Break dough into shapes and boil two minutes on each side. Remove from water, brush with egg, and put on greased cookie sheet. Bake in 350-degree oven until golden brown.
