 ** Bagel Success Hints
 ** When forming the bagels, set aside two 1/4 balls of dough.  When the
 bagels have doubled in size, drop the test dough into boiling water.  The
 dough should pop to the top right away.  When this happens, it is time to
 boil the bagels.
 ** A quick spray of non-stick vegetable coating on the top of the bagel may
 be substituted for the egg wash.
 ** To make bagel sticks, cut bagel before rising and lay out in a straight
 line.  Roll sticks in a combination  of sesame and poppy seeds with a pinch
 of garlic powder.  Let sticks rise, boil, and bake as described in the above
 ** To make bagel chips, slice leftover bagels horizontally into thin slices.
 Bruish with butter or margarine on one side.  Lay (butter side up) on an
 ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 325 for 12-15 minutes until golden brown
 and crisp.
