I have just started doing bagels, and am looking for a really good New York style bagel receipe.

My current receipe requires boiling 3,3 &1 baking for 7 minutes and they should be ready.  However, sometime after boiling, the bagel falls, and don't finish well in the oven.  I scale them at 5.5 oz.  Can you help me out with this?

CSD,

Not quite sure what 3,3,1 means?

If they are colapsing it can be,

1 undermixed

2. the dough is too cold

3. They are over proofed

If you're boiling for 3 min. per side. This is a very long time to boil.

What are you putting in the water? soda,

When you drop them they should go to the bottom. Count the amount of time it takes for them to come up. If it takes a minute or so, then flip them for the same amount of time and Bake.

If the 7 is the time of baking, that sound very short. 15-20 min.

Panini . In Brooklyn we used to put slight amount of lye in water as the hotter the better

.Also I have made them here in Florida and they are not as good as ones I made up North using same formulas . I attribute this to the water in Florida. It's the worst.

3,3,1 is boil 3 minutes, flip boil 3 minutes, flip boil one more and drain than place on greased baking sheet, top with egg whites & toppings, bake 7 minutes and they should be done.

Brighton Beach now is the new Russia, complete with Russian Mafia. You would not recognize it.
