  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water or more in needed
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  • Mix the yeast into 1 cup warm water and allow it to get foamy for about 20 minutes.
  • Measure the flour, sugar, salt, oil and remaining water in a large bowl.
  • Pour the yeast and water into the flour mixture and knead until smooth, adding more water if needed.
  • Move the dough to a clean surface and divide into 8 pieces.
  • Allow the pieces to rest for 10 minutes, and then roll each piece into a rope, joining at the end to form a ring.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees and bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Boil the bagels for 1 minute, flip and boil for one more minute.
  • Remove bagels from water and add toppings if you like (sesame seeds, salt, or poppy seeds would all be tasty)
  • Bake your bagels for 20 minutes or so, until brown and crispy.
