Ideas for using up partially stale cinnamon raisin bagels?

I have a 4 cinnamon raisin bagels that are going stale but I hate to throw them away. I can't think of anything to make with them so I'm turning to my FC friends to help me out. Any idea?

Oh, I should say that I'm looking for ideas for anything but bread pudding -- no one here will eat that.

Thanks!
Tami

There goes my idea for bread pudding! LOL I guess we eat a lot of that here where I am from. LOL

How about making some sort of croutons to use as toppings for ice cream, pudding, or yogurt?

French toast?

Toast and cut up the bagels into fingers, dip into applesauce or pudding?

Why not let them get stale and make bread crumbs out of them. You can coat chicken to make a sweet taste or chicken nuggets and serve with pineapple chunks for a sweet treat.

Bagels can be frozen. Before they start to go stale, slice in half, wrap well and freeze. Just toast them and they're ready to serve.

Here are directions for making bagel chips. I have not tried this recipe.

This calls for salt & seasonings. Maybe since these are sweet bagels, you could substitute cinnamon-sugar.
  1. Step 1
    Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Step 2
    Grease a baking sheet, either using a spray like Pam or by lightly spreading olive oil on the bottom of the baking sheet. This will keep the bagels from sticking.
  3. Step 3
    Slice the bagels, using a serrated bread knife. The slices should be 1/8 in to 1/4 in thick. This will produce 4 to 6 slices per bagel.
  4. Step 4
    Combine olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  5. Step 5
    Brush the bagel chips, using a kitchen brush, lightly brushing both sides of the bagels with the olive oil mixture.
  6. Step 6
    Arrange the bagel chips on a baking sheet in no more than a double layer.
  7. Step 7
    Place in the oven and bake. Bagel chips will take 20 minutes to cook. Be sure to keep an eye on them as the more stale they are, the faster they will cook. Remove them from the oven and let them sit. They will get crispier as they cool.

Why not just toast them? Isn't that basically what toasted bread is? Stale bread quickly?

I know here in Dutch Country, new comers claim that our bread is to soft. That they like some type of "crusty" bread. At the bakery my works, she said all that the crusty bread is, is bread that has been left out to turn stale! Interesting.

Karen, there is a whole different technique to baking crusty bread. But that is what's popular in the more "upscale" bakeries and stores, so that's why you're seeing people request it there. It's a fad...

So it's a fad now to leave fresh bread out to get "crusty"?

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I plopped them into the freezer. I'll probably end up just toasting them. I'm the only one in my house who likes bagel chips --sometimes I think that my family isn't human. lol!!

No, the fad is wanting crusty bread vs. soft bread.

As to leaving it out to get crusty, that really doesn't work because it will get stale inside as well. You have to bake the bread differently to get a crispy crust and soft inside.
