I made these up for my family and friends. They are not diet fare....!!! If you want a special snack to serve, this is it! We eat them instead of popcorn while watching a movie, or serve them at parties and potlucks.. always a big hit! *** You can use any kind of bagel you like... in the photos you can see I used sesseme seed bagels. We also like rye! *** You can use cinnamon raisin, or blueberry bagels and switch the garlic powder with cinnamon sugar.
