 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4 1/2  cups          flour
    2      packages      active dry yeast
    1 1/2  cups          warm water -- 110-115 F
    3      tablespoons   sugar
    1      tablespoon    salt
    1      tablespoon    sugar
 In mixer bowl combine 1 1/2 cups flour and the yeast. 
 Combine warm water, 3 Tbls. sugar and the salt. Pour over flour mixture. 
 Beat at low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl constantly. 
 Beat 3 minutes on high speed.
 Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can mix in with a spoon. 
 Turn out onto lightly floured surface. 
 Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough. 
 Continue kneading until smooth and elastic, 6 - 8 minutes. 
 Cover; let dough rest 10-15 minutes.
 Cut into 12 portions; shape into smooth balls. 
 Punch a hole in the center of each with a floured finger. 
 Pull gently to enlarge hole to 1 1/2 to 2 inches. 
 Place on a greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise 20 minutes. 
 Broil 5 inches from heat for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes on each side. 
 Tops should not brown.
 Heat 1 gallon water and 1 tablespoon sugar to boiling; reduce heat. 
 Cook bagels, 4 or 5 at a time, for 7 minutes, turning once. Drain. 
 Place on greased baking sheet. Bake in 375 degree oven 25 - 30 minutes.
