Everything Challah Bagels

Author: Micah Siva

Makes: 12 "bagels"


  • 1 package active yeast

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 1 ½ cup lukewarm water, divided

  • 2 large eggs

  • ¼  cup honey 

  • ⅓  cup olive oil 

  • ¼ cup everything bagel spice

  • 4 ½ -5 ½  cups all purpose flour

Egg wash

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tbsp water

  • Everything bagel spice


  1. Combine yeast, sugar, and ½ cup water in a bowl of a stand mixer. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, or until the yeast starts to foam or “bloom”. **if the yeast does not bloom, you may need to get fresher yeast**

  2. Add remaining water, eggs, honey, oil and salt, mixing on low to combine. Replace the paddle for the dough hook.

  3. Add flour, one cup at a time, mix on low using the dough hook. Knead the dough until smooth and no longer sticky, adding more flour as needed. Transfer to a clean, oiled bowl. Cover with a clean, damp towel, and let rise until doubled in size, about 2 hours.

  4. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

  5. Punch down dough to remove any air bubbles, and transfer to a floured surface.

  6. Cut into 12 even pieces. Roll each piece into a rope, approximately 14 inches long. Cover with a damp cloth and let rest for 10-15 minutes.

  7. Cut each rope in half. Dip one rope in water, and roll in bagel spice (or sesame seeds). Twist two ropes together and form a circle. Place on the baking sheet. Let rise for an additional 20 minutes.

  8. Make the egg wash: whisk together egg and water. Brush with egg wash.

  9. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden, turning the tray halfway through and brushing with additional egg wash.
