Bagel Crisps

There were a couple of bagels left in the refrigerator.

Not wanting to throw them away, I decided to try making bagel crisps.

I really enjoy an all natural brand of these crisps, but they are so expensive.

I have made them before but they didn't turn out right, so I tried it a bit differently this time.

These bagels were the ones with "the works", so I didn't need any additional seasonings.

I sliced them in 1/4 inch pieces around the bagel - not big slices with a hole in the middle.

I put about two tablespoons of olive oil in a large plastic bag, then loaded in the bagel pieces.

After shaking them around in the bag to coat them with the oil, I placed them on an ungreased cookie pan.

I baked them at 325 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, turning them every five.

The idea is to get them to crisp all the way through but not burn them.

The second batch was more successful - you really need to keep an eye on them.

After cooling, they went into an airtight bag.

They are quite tasty - I like them just as much as the expensive ones.

I will now keep my eye on the clearance section in the bread department for bagels.

Crisped up, they make a great snack!
