From Bagels to Bagel Chips

Looking for an easy, delicious afternoon snack? Give bagel chips a try! Bagel chips are basically extra baked bagel pieces. You can eat them plain, or they go great with hummus, cheese or any other spread you desire. Here’s how you make these tasty treats in your own kitchen:

You will need:

  • 4-6 bagels
  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, smashed and peeled

Step 1: Head over to The Bagel Bakery and pick up some fresh bagels. We recommend getting plain bagels, but you can make these with any flavored bagel.

Step 2: Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 3: With a knife, carefully cut the bagels into thin slices and spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Step 4: Heat oil in a saucepan. Once oil gets warm, remove from heat and add the garlic. Let sit for ten minutes and then remove the garlic from the oil.

Step 5: Using a pastry brush, brush the oil lightly on the bagel slices.

Step 6: Bake until golden brown. Turn and bake on the other side for 5 minutes.

Step 7: Remove from oven and let cool.

And voilà! Now you have a great afternoon snack to share with your friends and family.

Bagel Tips

Here at The Bagel Bakery, we want you to be as bagel-savvy as possible. This is why we’re sharing a few of our tips and tricks.

  • Avoid a trip to the hospital. Don’t cut a bagel while holding it in your hand! Instead, hold it down on a cutting board and carefully slice is horizontally. Better yet, invest in a bagel slicer if you can!
  • Freeze your bagels when they’re fresh. If you buy your bagels in bulk, you should freeze them as soon as possible to seal in their freshness.
  • Always pre-slice your bagels before freezing them. Trying so slice a frozen bagel is a guaranteed accident waiting to happen.
  • Fresh bagels, like The Bagel Bakery bagels, can last one or two days on the counter if they’re in a plastic bag, not a paper one. Keeping bagels in a paper bag will make them stale quickly.
  • If you’re bagel is a little hard, you can wrap it in a moist paper towel and pop it in the microwave for a couple seconds. The result is a warm, ready-to-eat bagel.
