Homemade Bagel Chips

Homemade Bagel Chips
I did a thing. I ordered an enormous amount of bagels from NYC and let 1/2 of them go stale. Don’t ask how this happened. Time flies, you know? I should’ve froze them upon arrival, but I didn’t. And before I knew it I was left with two dozen stale bagels. Luckily, bagel chips are best made with stale bagels…and who doesn’t love a crispy, salty bagel chip? They can be made in under 15 minutes from start to finish and store for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container or ziplock bag.


3 stale bagels
1/4 cup olive oil


  • Slice the bagels into 1/8 inch rounds (or as thin as you can get them)
  • Line the bagel slices on a baking dish
  • Using a spoon or pastry brush, brush olive oil over each bagel slice
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, allow to cool completely before transferring to an airtight container or ziplock bag


These are great to snack on by themselves, or even better when dipped into hummus, tuna fish, white fish dip or pesto, just to name a few.
