Cajun Bagel Crisps
These were a super tasty find in my Christmas Gifts from the Kitchen book this year (Jean Pare, Company's Coming). They aren't just for Christmas snacking, they will do well year round. Easy to make and yummy to snack on. We munched on these plain, with cream cheese and with cream cheese and smoked salmon. All good!
2 large bagels (they suggest trying a savory flavour, but we just used plain)
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
Cut bagels in half crosswise. Cut each half into 1/8 (3 mm) half-moon slices. Arrange in a single layer on greased baking sheets (I just sprayed mine with Pam).
Combine the next 7 ingredients in a small bowl. Brush both sides of the bagel slices with the margarine mixture.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake in 400* oven for 10 to 12 minutes until golden. Cool. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen crisps.
