Josh Ferguson made these and delivered them on his motorcycle to the people of San Miguel for years.  He was the go-to bagel man.  Now he is living at some sort of ice-station zebra complex above the Arctic Circle, so we have to make them for ourselves.  Though I'm still trying to get him to go into the frozen bagel business.

Montreal Bagels
3.5        Cups of flour
2           Tsp of salt
2           Tbsp of sugar
1          Cup of dried onions (or other flavoring)
1           Cup of warm water
3           Tbsp of yeast
2           Eggs
1           Tbsp oil

Mix together in a large bowl
sugar, warm water, and yeast.
Let sit for 10 minutes.
Add eggs, oil, dried onions, salt
Knead for 10 minutes or until dough feels smooth
Let rise for 2  hours.

After the dough has risen it is time to form the bagels.

To form each bagel, pinch off a handful of dough.
Push your thumb through the center and smooth
Around the edges until the bagel is smooth and circular.
Let the bagels rise for 15 minutes after they are formed.

Preheat oven to 425

Boil a large pot of water and drop each bagel in individually for 2 minutes
After boiled brush the bagels with egg as a glaze
Bake bagels for 10 minutes, flip and bake for another 10.
