Bagels sliced thinly, fried til crisp and sprinkled with salt and chili powder. Very morish and simple!

  2. Deep fry til brown and crunchy, remove to paper towels.
  3. sprinkle with salt and chili powder on both sides and serve.

These were quite the tasty treat. I used pumpernickel bagels. My one complaint is the difficulty of slicing them thin enough to be the right crispiness. The chili powder was a great addition.

Sounds like a great way to use bagels, and cheaper than buying store-bought bagel chips. Hope to try these, but I'll prob experiment with baking them, brushed lightly with oil to cut down on the fat. Thanks for the easy idea djmastermum! :)
