About this recipe: Making bagels is fun, but does require a bit of effort. But in the end you'll be rewarded with delicious bagels that also freeze well!
Instead of poppy seeds, you can use sesame seeds, coarse sea salt, or no topping at all!

Ann, you must be Jewish! I'm a rank-Yank from New Jersey who worked in a high-volume (350+dozen/morning) Jewish Bagel shop. Of the three or so bagel recipes I found, this recipe most closely matches the shop's. It is a fine home-sized adaptaion of the large-scale operation I worked in. I think the recipe is fine, it brought back a lot of memories. It's a good base from which to start using condiments. The only criticism is that the dough could probably use a little more salt (but a salt-topping could easliy fix that). - 18 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
