Once upon a time I had a crazy obsession with Chex Mix. I managed to go years without buying a single bag. I’m not sure how that happened exactly, I think it started out with me cringing over the high price for such a little bag and it turned into me forgetting. I didn’t even give those lovely bags a glance as I walked down the aisle. Something was most definitely wrong with me.
I finally caved and bought a pretty blue bag of Chex Mix only to be deeply disappointed. Where did the bagel chips go?! It was also seriously lacking in the seasoning department. I always loved the cereal pieces overly coated with seasoning.
So this post isn’t about homemade Chex Mix, but it is about seriously tasty and easy to make bagel chips. I had dip to make and not a single chip insight, enter bagel chips. I love bagel chips. I honestly think my favorite part about homemade chips is that you can flavor them however you please. I’m most definitely going to make these a lot, especially when we have a reason to snack… like say the biggest football game of the year.
I promise I have something special to go with these chips. I could sit and eat these chips as is but sometimes you want a little dip, right? Be sure to stop by later in the week for a delicious dip recipe. In the meantime, check out how to make some seriously easy and snack-able bagel chips below. These would go fantastic with a variety of warm and cold dips, or as is.
2 large bagels, any variety
4 tbsp butter, melted
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice bagels into thin discs. In a small bowl, melt butter with olive oil. Add butter and olive oil to a 9x13 baking dish. Tip and rotate baking dish until entire bottom is coated with butter and oil.
Place bagel slices in baking dish, press down, flip and repeat. Transfer soaked bagel slices to a baking sheet. Repeat process with all bagel slices.
In a small bowl, mix spices and sprinkle over bagel slices.
Bake for 5 minutes. Flip slices. Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until desired crispness is reached.
Cool and serve plain or with your choice of dips. Store in an airtight container.
