Cinnamon Bagel Chips

In my big family we have so many opinions and we hardly agree on anything. Bagels, however, serve us a common ground—a soft and doughy common ground. They are my little life savers especially on busy mornings when everyone decides they want something different for breakfast! The code word: Bagels!
Inevitably we have left overs. My sophisticated eaters don't like to eat the same everyday (I totally differ!). Although I strongly encourage them not to be picky, sometimes I just have to choose my battles. And leftover bread—that's what bagel is after all—is never waisted. I make bread puddings, crumbs and, of course, croutons or chips.
So that's what I did to two leftover Blueberry bagels. I made chips. Very easy and very cozy for a family game night, for example.
Cinnamon Blueberry Bagel Chips
2 Bagels, sliced across
1 TB spoon olive oil
1 generous teaspoon cinnamon sugar
(which I make myself mixing sugar and ground cinnamon)

Preheat oven to 350°F
Cut bagels across into 1/4˝ thick slices
In a bowl, mix bagels, cinnamon sugar and oil, toss to cover all the pieces
Arrange the chips on a cookie sheet in a single layer
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown
Enjoy with some whipped cream cheese as a dip or on their own! And watch them—new family favorite—disappear…
