4 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/4 cups warm water
For the topping:
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup poppy seeds
2 tablespoons dried minced onion
2 tablespoons dried minced garlic
2 tablespoons coarse salt
1 large egg, beaten (for egg wash)
1️⃣ In a large bowl, whisk together the bread flour, instant yeast, sugar, and salt.
2️⃣ Add the warm water and mix with a spoon or your hands until the dough comes together.
3️⃣ Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes, until it becomes smooth and elastic.
4️⃣ Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size.
5️⃣ Punch down the dough and divide it into 8 equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball, then use your finger to poke a hole in the center and stretch it to form a bagel shape.
6️⃣ Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
7️⃣ Drop the bagels into the boiling water, a few at a time, and boil for about 1 minute on each side. Remove them with a slotted spoon and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
8️⃣ In a small bowl, combine the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried minced onion, dried minced garlic, and coarse salt for the topping.
9️⃣ Brush the tops of the boiled bagels with beaten egg wash, then sprinkle the seed mixture generously over each bagel.
