Ingredients

  • 1

    package dry yeast

  • 1

    cup warm water, 105°F to 115°F

  • 4

    tablespoons instant minced onion, divided

  • 1

    tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 1/2

    cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/4

    cup all-purpose flour

  • Vegetable cooking spray

  • 3 1/2

    quarts water

  • 1

    Egg

  • 1

    tablespoon water

  • 1

    tablespoon caraway seeds

Directions

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Add 3 tablespoons onion and oil, stirring well. Stir in whole wheat flour and salt; gradually stir in all-purpose flour. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 1 minute. Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Knead an additional 7 to 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°F), free from drafts, 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down, and divide into equal portions. Shape each portion into a smooth ball; punch a hole in the center of each ball, using floured fingers. Gently pull dough away from center, making a 1 1/2 inch hole. Place shaped bagels on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bring 3 1/2 quarts water to a boil in a large Dutch oven. Lower bagels, a few at a time, into gently boiling water; cook 3 minutes on each side. Transfer bagels to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, using a slotted spoon. Combine egg and 1 tablespoon water, beat well, and gently brush over bagels. Sprinkle with instant minced onion. Bake at 450°F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
