    These Bagel Chips are a nice alternative to traditional potato chips. The made-over bagel recipe adds herbs for extra flavor, and reduces the amount of oil and salt.
  Recipe Makeover

    2 Tbsp canola oil
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1/4 tsp dried mixed herbs
    2 small bagels (2 oz each), plain or onion, cut into small bite-size pieces
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    28.57 g Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

  Traditional Recipe

    3 large potatoes (russet or white), peeled and very thinly sliced
    1 Tbsp salt
    1 quart oil for deep frying

Directions:

    Heat the oil in a skillet and add the garlic and mixed herbs. Cook for 1 minute. Add the bagel pieces in batches, turning them for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Drain the bagel chips on absorbent paper towels.

    Serve in a warm serving dish, seasoned with salt and pepper and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.

Variations:

    Can serve as an accompaniment to your favorite dip.
