Mix flour, salt, sugar, and yeast together in a mixing bowl.
1
Use a dough hook and slowly pour water in the middle of the flour. Scrape down sides. Mix to combine.
2
Knead on low to medium speed until dough comes together and doesn’t stick to the sides of the bowl.
3
The dough should be firm, smooth, and slightly tacky. Not sticky. Stretch into a ball and cover.
4
Let dough rise, covered, 1 hour until doubled in size. Punch down and let rest 10 minutes, covered.
5
Divide your dough into 8 equal pieces using a kitchen scale. Shape each into a small ball.
6
Here it is the shaping process slowed down.
7
Coat your thumb in flour, then press it through the bottom seam and stretch while rotating.
8
Repeat with the rest of the dough balls until all the bagels have holes. Let rest 10 minutes.
9
Preheat oven to 425F and bring a skillet to low boil on the stove. Gently place 4 bagels in water.
10
Flip bagels after 2 mins and boil an additional 2 mins.
11
Remove boiled bagels using a wire spider to a silicone mat-lined or greased sheet pan.
12
Brush boiled bagels with egg wash (1 egg + pinch salt + 1 tsp water, whisked together).
13
Add your favorite toppings!
14
Now you’re ready to bake! 20 minutes at 425F.
15
Let them cool on the pan 5-10 mins.
16
You did it! You made bagels!
17
Slather with cream cheese and enjoy!
