Panera Bread Plain Bagels

I love making bagels, yes it takes a lot of time, but in the end it is the most rewarding dish you will ever make. Not only is this a simple recipe but it does not require much experience in the kitchen. In fact, I recruited two of my most amazing helpers on this big project (since I was making blueberry bagels along side these plain one! oooeeee!!) These bagels are extremely moist, chewy and perfect! They literally remind me of Panera Bread! YUM YUM!

You Will Need:

1 Cup Warm Water
1 pk Non-GMO Yeast
1 tsp Salt
5 1/2 Cups Bread Flour
1/4 Cup Organic Sugar, not pictured

(see my notes hehe) Place all dry ingredients into a stand mixer

Add Water

You may need a little more water, add 1 tbsp at a time; until the dough forms a ball. Continue mixing on setting 2 for 10 minutes 

This is how you want it to look.. elastic-y 

Place in a greased bowl. Cover and rise for 40 minutes in a warm area 

Roll 4.5 oz balls

Roll into the ball and place on a cookie sheet, rise for 20 minutes covered with a damp towel
Once done rising, place a pointer finger in the middle and spin until a big enough whole 
They will not look perfect, but honestly who cares! My kids helped so they look 'goofy' (allow these to rest until water boils)

Boil water in a pot with with 6 tbsp of organic raw honey. Add four to five bagels at a time, gently, 

Boil for 1 minute per side

Once down, allow to dry then place back on the baking sheet. Bake 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes turning halfway or until golden brown.

Cool completely
