Easiest recipe ever.

In fact, not even a recipe at all.

But so simple, delicious, economical and healthy that I had to share.

Especially after last night’s gluttonous shenanigans.

Something had to give. And today it’s the button on my pants, thanks to that dinner.

I’m just glad we made it through the night without any clogged arteries or myocardial infarctions. Whatever those are.

Have you ever made homemade bagel chips? They are so easy!

I used whole wheat bagels, but those are obviously boring. Cinnamon or asiago bagels would taste so much better.

It is best to use bagels that are a bit stale. Just slice them very thin, brush with olive oil and top with sea salt. Or whatever else you may like.

Simple Bagel Chips

2 large whole wheat bagels or 4 mini whole wheat bagels

1 tablespoon olive oil

sea salt

Preheat oven to 425.

Slice thin rounds from the bagel, using all pieces even if they break in half. Brush all pieces with olive oil and top with sea salt.

Bake for 8-10 minutes but watch closely – oven times may differ.

I couldn’t really figure out how to get a great, non-blurry shot of the thin bagel crisp. It must have been the butter.

From now on, today I’m blaming everything on the butter.
