    These are great! I used a touch of Parmesan, garlic salt and real butter and melted all together. Then I brushed each piece and followed the rest of the directions. These are perfect for a snack, better than any bagel chips you can buy.

    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.
