Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. With a sharp knife, very carefully slice the bagels as thinly as possible, getting 8 to 10 slices per bagel.
  4. Spread in 1 layer on the prepared sheets.
  5. Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  6. When oil starts to get warm, about 1 minute, remove from the heat and add the garlic and Essence.
  7. Let sit until the garlic perfumes the oil, about 10 minutes.
  8. Remove the garlic from the oil.
  9. With a pastry brush, lightly brush the oil on the bagel chips.
  10. Bake until golden brown.
  11. Turn and bake on the second side until just crisp, about 5 minutes.
  12. Remove from the oven and cool on wire racks.

mummamills made these for us today-they are really garlicky, crisp and good.

turned out perfect. heated the oil and garlic in the micro wave for 30 secs. didnt have creole seasoning, but I did spread some with sun dried tomato pesto. They were ok, but took longer to crisp, and I feel the plain ones were better. I make a version of Mirj's oven dried tomato, and next time I will use the oil from that :)

I like the method of heating the olive oil with the garlic in it. It smelled wildly garlicy in my house, but on the bagel itself, it was very subtle. I used the cajun seasoning on 1/2 the batch and "Tastefully Simple's" Spinach and Herb mix on the 2nd half. I plan on chopping half of the batch up to keep for croutons on salad. Thanks!
