When I make bagels at home...... wait a minute, gotta splain...
first you cut out the donut shape, then you drop them in boiling water, then you bake them.
Just before baking you give them an "egg wash" (egg whites brushed on), then you sprinkle the seeds on, then bake.
The egg whites give them the glossy/shiny look.
I like poppy seeds and onion powder better than sesame seeds.
So I think you could call the egg wash "seed glue"..... LOL
Are you trying to make them homemade? If you are, you're never gonna buy them at the grocer again!
Try garlic, garlic and onion, bacon bits, celery seed, etc.....
