Roasted Bagel Chips
Instead of buying crackers or pita bread for dipping, try bagel chips for something different and tasty.
2 or 3 bagels, any kind
3 tbsp of butter or olive 0il
1/4 tsp of salt
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
2. Place bagels in fridge for 30 minutes. This step isn’t necessary, although I find it helps make the bagels easier to slice thinly.
3. Slice the bagels into 1/2 – 1.4 inch slices (4-5 slices per bagel, typically).
4. Lightly butter each side of the bagel slices or drizzle with olive oil, then coat both sides with salt, to taste.
5. Place bagel slices on ungreased baking sheet for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Flip part way through. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
My name is Mike and even though I’m not always a gentleman, it’s safe to say I am in love with food. Like my more famous namesake, the kid on the cereal commercial from the early 80′s, I had an ability to eat just about anything and “like it.”
I’ve become a tad more discerning since my toddler phase: I prefer Pinot Noir to the customary Shiraz my parents liked, I no longer eat parmesan cheese sprinkled from a container, and can pick out which ingredients I like or don’t in a recipe by smell alone. I blame my Lebanese heritage, my large Lebanese nose (all the better for smelling with) and exposure over the past few years to some exquisite ethnic cooking styles and cuisine, as well as to some stunning, inspiring cooks who are family or friends.
I’ve included a lot of their favourite recipes on this site, as well as a few of my own that have become my staples over the years. I hope you find something here that you like.
