Beware! These homemade Crispy Crunchy Everything Bagel Chips are so addicting that you can’t step away. Please proceed with the utmost caution! 😉
Are you like me? Do you like snacks that are packed with flavor and have a satisfying, savory crunch? If so, then these Homemade Crispy Crunchy Everything Bagel Chips need to happen in your kitchen ASAP!
Truth? I made these everything bagel chips for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday because we’re having guests. After I’d taken the everything bagel chips out of the oven, I had to continue to slap away the hands of my husband and son because these things are SO addicting!! I eventually had to hide the chips with the promise to my family that I’d make them again very, very soon. OR, (as I told them) you can make them yourselves. I wouldn’t mind that one bit…and while you’re at it, please bring me a cold beverage. LOL. Yeah. That’s going to happen!
These everything bagel chips are so good to eat on their own that they don’t need any dip at all. Of course, you can still dip them in whatever strikes your fancy (if you feel the need), but it’s certainly not necessary because they’re so packed with flavor just the way they are!
The grocery list for making these bagel chips is relatively short, and you probably already have most “everything” you need (the spices and seeds) already in your pantry. The items I used are: 1 bag of mini bagels (plain), garlic powder, onion powder, minced dehydrated onion, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, black pepper, salt, and olive oil.
Up until the other day I had never made homemade bagel chips before and had always purchased them at the store. Don’t get me wrong, while the bagel chips from the store are still good, these homemade everything bagel chips are SO MUCH BETTER! And, they’re made without preservatives or weird ingredients!
Since I wanted these chips to be as crispy as possible, I decided that the best thing to do was bake the bagel slices twice before adding the oil and seasonings. I was afraid that if I added the oil to the sliced bagels before baking them, the oil would get completely absorbed into the slices and not be distributed evenly throughout the entire batch of chips. This method worked like a charm, and the result is a chip with all the crunch your ears can handle!
If you’re wondering about storing your everything bagel chips (if you have any left to store, that is) so they remain crispy, I recommend placing them them in a brown paper bag. A lunch-size bag is the perfect fit. The breathability of the brown paper bag is just the thing these chips require for retaining their maximum crunch factor!

I’ve decided to pair this recipe post along with my fun and whimsical hand painted set of CLUE character drink glasses. After all, if you’re having a party (maybe a game night) and serving these homemade everything bagel chips, then you also want to serve your guests a delicious beverage in something unique and completely unexpected.
I have a quick little story to tell of these Clue character drinks glasses. Last Christmastime, Delta Burke (of Designing Woman Fame), ordered this set of glasses from me to give to her husband (Gerald McRaney) for when they host game-night in their home. It was one of the most exciting things that has ever happened, and I love the thought of them both drinking out of these glasses and having fun! Priceless!!
