Homemade Bagel Chips

Homemade Bagel Chips – Recipe Homemade Bagel Chips – Recipe

Make your own crispy, crunchy bagel chips at home with this recipe with a dehydrator or oven baked. Beware, they're addictive!

Who is in the mood for snacks? I am. I'm more of the crunchy-salty type of snack guy, though, so I gravitate toward crispy chips and such, though a lot of that stuff isn't very good for you. Right? It isn't smart to nosh down an entire bag of oily potato chips. Well not always. =)

I like to make more of my snacks at home, homemade versions, so I can control what goes into them, and so I can limit the amounts I make as well. This is why I love my dehydrator. Dehydrator snacks are healthier and they won't burst the belly, and to be honest, they're fun to make.

Crispy Homemade Bagel Chips – Here is the Recipe

These bagel chips are very crispy-crunchy, right up my alley. They satisfy that crunchy need I crave.

Bagel chips are ideal if you have old bagels that you want to use up. I like to freeze older bagels so I can make these anytime I'd like.

The great thing is, you can make these a couple different ways - either with a dehydrator or an oven. With the oven, you're likely to get more browing on the chips, more like a toasty crunch factor. With a dehydrator, you'll get the purest bagel chip experience. The choice is yours. It is easier to add other seasonings with the oven method, so each method has its own advantages.

I love grabbing flavored bagels for these. This way, the flavor is built right into the final chips. Jalapeno bagels are my FAVORITE, but the methods work for any bagels.
