Homemade Bagel Chips

Bagel chips, from Cheap Recipe Blog

I’m always on the lookout for good deals on food. Like:

  • Day-old bread at Jimmy John’s (they sell it for 50 cents!)
  • Fruit that is on the brink of being too old, which is sometimes highly discounted at the supermarket (I freeze it and add it to smoothies)
  • Day-old bagels at bagel shops

Awhile back, I experimented making bagel chips out of day-old bagels. I think I paid somewhere around $1.50 for six bagels.


I made them into bagel chips, and they were crispy, flavorful, and perfect for dipping.

    Our local bagel shop slices their day-olds, fries them, and sells them as house-made bagel chips! So now I’m wondering where else I might find some cheap day-old bagels, because these totally need to happen. ๐Ÿ™‚
