At my house (and store), hummus and bean dip are a huge hit for curbing between-meal cravings. Pairing pitas with these spreads is old news, so I switch it up and use old bagels to make these crispy, satisfying dippers.

Bagel Chips
Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 4 bagels, 1-2 days old (your choice of flavor…I love everything and whole wheat)
  • Olive oil spray
  • 2 cloves of garlic, whole

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice bagels thinly with a serrated knife or mandolin (about 1/8-1/4 inch thick). Spray bagels on both sides with olive oil spray (just to coat). Arrange slices in a single layer on a sheet pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until slightly golden. (Note: The dryer the bagels, the less time they take to crisp up…keep an eye on them!) Rub baked chips with garlic cloves.
