We are rolling off a cloudier, rainier long weekend than normal as the end of summer.  Usually temperatures dictate summer food cravings well into September and even October in my area.  As summer produce starts disappearing as a cue to the end of the growing season, cozier comfort foods take their place.

One thing I love about fall is football season.  It has a rhythm and culture all its own.  We know ‘football food’ when we see it.  We know Sunday’s, Monday nights and now Thursday nights are when games are in full swing.  It’s a great excuse to see friends and hang out.  I’ll confess I don’t even watch the games that often but love the ritual of it all.  Well, mostly.

As much as I love all the ooey gooey tailgating standards, my waistline doesn’t always agree.  Especially with chips and dip, it’s easy to overindulge and feel icky afterwards.  Too much salt, too much fat.  Getting ready for this season I had a fun idea of making my own dipping chips from my favorite Udi’s Everything Bagels.

Everything Bagels are fully loaded in the flavor department with onion and garlic, poppy seeds, flax seeds and millet.  They are the bagels I thought I’d never have again when becoming gluten-free.  This recipe may be made with any bagels though these are my hands-down favorite for making Homemade Bagel Chips.

A quick baking of thinly sliced and quartered bagels yields a crunchy-on-the-outside, soft on the inside dipping chip that is sturdy but not hard.  They are great for spreads, thicker dips and even something more watery like Pico de Gallo; they won’t become soggy or fall apart.

We’ve eaten them with many favorite dips on BoulderLocavore.com with winning results!  Here are some great options:

Homemade Everything Bagel Chips

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 16 bagel chips per bagel

Homemade bagel chips are a cinch to make and are bursting with great flavor when using Everything style bagels. They are a perfect companion to any spread or dip!

If using bagels other than Udi's, be sure to slice the bagels in no thicker than 1/4-inch slices for proper results.

Ingredients

  • Udi’s Everything Bagels
  • Olive Oil or Olive Oil spray
  • Serrated knife

Instructions

  1. Put the bagels in the refrigerator for an hour before making bagel chips.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Using a serrated knife, carefully slice each bagel into four (4) 1/8-1/4 inch slices. Tip: using the pre-sliced center cut on the bagel, cut halfway between the center cut and outside of the bagel to cut uniformly thick slices. Then cut each round slice into fourths to make the bagel chips.
  3. Lightly brush both sides of the bagel chips (or spray them with olive oil spray) and place them on a baking pan in a single layer. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-17 minutes until they begin to turn slightly golden (they will become harder as they cool). They do not need to be turned while baking.
  4. Remove and allow to cool fully on a cooling rack.

    Wow! I had no idea that bagel chips were so easy to make! We are college football fans, and I think these would be the perfect snack for our next watch party with friends. That Spicy Chipotle Pumpkin Hummus looks delish!

    That is a great sounding alternative to chips and dip. I’d love to try making them too. And you’re right, excellent football food you’d have in no time at all!
