Ingredients & Their Alternatives

  • Butter: The recipe calls for salted butter to enhance the flavor, but unsalted butter can also be used if you’re watching your sodium intake.
  • Garlic: Generously add two tablespoons of minced garlic for a robust flavor. It might sound like a lot, but it’s been perfected to ensure it’s not overwhelming.
  • Bagels: Plain bagels are preferred for their neutral flavor which pairs well with the garlic, but feel free to use any homemade or store-bought bagels you like.

Baking Bagel Chips in the Oven

Lacking an air fryer? Bake these in the oven by arranging the seasoned bagel slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 15 minutes, turning halfway through to ensure they crisp up evenly.
