Yummy! I used 6 mini whole wheat bagels and upped everything to 4 T. canola oil, 1 tsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp cayenne, 1/4 tsp cumin, and 1/2 tsp paprika. I then sprinkled with seasoning salt. I was eating them as they came out of the oven without trying to burn my tongue. LOL! These were great! Thanks for the recipe, Redsie!

I spritzed the bagels slices with water then shook them in a bag with the spices. It took longer to cook (about 7 minutes)
