Open the top cover of the bread machine and lift the handle of the bread pan vertically, pulling upward to remove the pan from the machine. Place the bread pan on your work surface. Make sure the pan is clean and both kneading paddles are in place.
Add the first 5 ingredients to the bread pan in the order listed.
Put the bread pan back in the bread machine, pressing it down so that it clicks into place. Close the lid of the bread machine.
Plug the bread machine into an outlet and press the power button to turn the machine on.
Use the menu button to select program #6 for the dough cycle.
Press the start button to begin the dough making cycle.
Once the dough is done, the countdown timer on the front of the machine will read 0:00 and the machine will beep, indicating your dough is done. Open the machine at this time and use a pot holder to lift the pan out of the machine.
Gently lift the dough out of the machine and place it on a floured work surface.
Divide the dough into 9 equal pieces.
Roll each piece into a tight ball then use your finger to make a hole in the center of the ball. Stick your finger through the hole and twirl the dough on your finger to enlarge the hole and bagel.
Sprinkle a cookie sheet with the cornmeal and set aside.
Bring the 8 cups of water to a boil and add the sugar.
Gently drop the formed bagels into the boiling water, boil for 30 seconds, flip and boil for 30 more seconds.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the bagels from the boiling water and place on the cornmeal dusted tray.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Brush the bagels with the whisked egg white and then bake for 20 minutes or until just golden brown. Enjoy warm.
