recipe ingredients


1.In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
2. Add the oil, sugar, 3 tablespoons honey, brown sugar, salt and egg; mix well. 3.Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough. 
4.Turn onto a floured surface; knead for 8-10 minutes until a smooth, firm dough forms. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
5. Punch the dough down. Shape it into 12 balls. Push thumb through centers to form a 1-1/2-in. hole. Stretch and shape dough to form an even ring. Place on a floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes; flatten bagels slightly.
6. In a large saucepan, bring 8 cups water and remaining honey to a boil. Drop bagels, 1 at a time, into boiling water. Cook bagels for 45 seconds; turn and cook 45 seconds longer.
7. Remove bagels with a slotted spoon; drain and sprinkle with sesame seeds and poppy seeds.
