"Love these!!! my bagels were pre-sliced so just sliced them the opposite way.. I got 4 slices per bagel.... they crisped up perfectly, I did 14 minutes per side. Did a batch of cinnamon raisin and then cranberry... both excellent!!! Didn't add any seasonings but would if they weren't the flavored bagels... thanks so much for sharing!!"

"I forgot to refrigerate the bagles for an hour, not sure what that step is for but I don't think it made any difference anyway. Biggest problem I had was all the bagles here are pre-sliced, so instead of chips they were the size of croutons .. next time I'd use a bagette! :D"

"These are so yummy. You can add other seasoning blends too for a flavor change.

They tend to crisp up when they cool, but it's hard to wait."
