Bagel – You’ll want an unsliced bagel – these can often be found in the bakery section of a grocery store or picked up from, your favorite bagel shop. Use any variety bagel you like – Everything Bagels are always tasty, but we usually use plain.
Seasonings – You will need melted butter, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. If you’re using a flavored bagel, you may want to adjust the seasonings accordingly.
How to Make Bagel Chips in an Air Fryer:
- Slice your bagels– Cut your bagel in half from the top down. This should give you two half moon or “C-shaped” pieces of bagel. From here, slice the ends into pieces as thin as you can, around 1/8″ slices. If it is a little thicker it is fine, but do try and make it thin.
Using a serrated bread knife will work best for cutting the bagels without squishing them.
- Season your bagel chips– Add your bagel slices to a bowl. Add in your melted butter, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt to a separate small bowl and stir all this to combine. Then pour your butter mix over the bagel slices and stir to coat.
- Air fry the bagel chips- Air fry your seasoned chips at 300 degrees F for 8 minutes. Halfway through cooking, shake the basket for even cooking.
