Egg Bagels

I use this recipe to make all the bagels that our family eats.
We all really like it :) You can do the plain or make them everything bagels :)

Egg Bagels

Ingredients: 2 cups Potato water 110F
1/4 cup oil
4 Lg Eggs
7 1/2 cups flour
2 Tbs Yeast
1 1/2 Tbs Salt

Heat water and salt to 110. Add to flour and yeast. Add oil and eggs. Knead.

Let rise in oiled bowl 1 hour or until doubled. Punch down and cut into quarters. Cut each quarter in 3 or 4 pieces, and roll into a 10" rope, overlapping ends 1". Lightly flatten one side, and pinch both together.
Set aside on a floured surface. Cover and let rise for 15 minutes.
Heat a large pot of water 3/4 full to boiling.  2-3 at a time, place bagels (with flat pancake turner) into the water, and boil for a minute on each side. When done, put on a lightly greased cookie sheet or whatever you want to bake them on. 
Now is the time, if you want to put toppings on. We usually put dried minced garlic, sesame seed, and whatever else you may want to add.
Put oven rack a little lower than midway down, and preheat oven to 415 and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
