I grew up getting fresh bagels from a real bagel shop most weekends. For the last four years we have lived on a small island in the Pacific NW and there is no place to get a REAL bagel. This was my first attemp to make my own bagels and they came out great. At the request of my family I made them the next day as well. On the second day I increased the temp to 400 degrees at 20 min. I also brush all the bagels with a light water/egg mixture to help the toppings stay on and to help crisp up the outside a bit. These came out perfectly. By the way, I mixed by hand and baked on a pizza stone. I made two batches the second day. One batch had 3 cups reg. flour 1.5 cups wheat...they tasted great too. Thank you! I will never again long for a REAL bagel! The only possible problem is that my wife says this needs to be a new Saturday morning tradition. Oh well.
