Waiter, there's something in my..... bagel chips!
At the moment, I am making bagels at least 2 or 3 times a week. I do tend to cheat and use the bread machine to knead the dough, but then I probably wouldn't make them that often if I didn't.
A few days ago, one of my boys wanted some mini bagels, but when they kept getting lost at the bottom of the toaster, I decided to turn them into bagel chips.
Some of the bagels were sliced from the top down and some were sliced horizontally, and the latter do look better - although they both taste the same. Simply brush with olive oil and sprinkle with herbs/spices/Parmesan cheese, before baking.
Mini Bagel Chips
Half a dozen mini bagels, thinly sliced
Dried herbs of your choice, I used Italian seasoning flakes
Spices of your choice, I used paprika
Parmesan, finely grated
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oven to 180ºC.
Thinly slice the bagels and place on a baking sheet in a single layer.
Brush each slice with a little olive oil.
Sprinkle with your choice of seasonings and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden and crisp.
These are also good served with a dip.
Cut on the vertical - not so good looking!
This is my entry into this month's Waiter, There's Something In My.... being hosted by Johanna of The Passionate Cook. The theme is picnic fare, and although it's easy just to throw in a couple of bags of crisps (chips) for the kids, these are a little different and very moreish!
