I started out by putting the following in my bosch:
3 cups warm water
2 tbsp. yeast
1/3 cup sugar
3 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
4 tsp. salt
Then mix for a minute and add in 3-4 more cups of flour (My first batch, I used white, my second, I used wheat. I think I would do half wheat and half white next time. They turned out a little puffier, but the all whole wheat ones were good, too.)
Take your dough out. . .
And cut it into 16 balls of dough.
Next, you form the bagel. The trick is to make a ball out of the dough and then poke your fingers through the middle and stretch it out a little. You can kind of roll it a little, too.
Place them on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Put a towel over them and let rise for 20 more minutes. This is what mine looked like:
Once they have raised, bring a pot of water to boil, with 3 T of sugar in it. Put a bagel in (I fit 3 at a time in my pot, just depends on how big yours is) and boil it for 30 seconds on each side. I used a spatula to flip them over.
When they are done, place them on a kitchen towel to let the water drain off of them.
And, here are the other kinds I made:
