Homemade Bagel Chips
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. They were crispy, flavorful, and perfect for dipping.
Bagel Chips: Serving Suggestions
These bagel chips can be eaten on their own or with dip. Depending on the flavor of the bagel, you’ll want to choose an appropriate dip, such as:
- Blueberry bagel chips with strawberry cream cheese dip
- Poppy seed bagel chips with green olive cream cheese dip
- Everything bagel chips with chipotle hummus or sundried tomato-chickpea dip
- Plain bagel chips with bruschetta topping
These can also be eaten with soup or as croutons in a salad. Do you have additional serving ideas? Please share them below!
