Homemade Bagel Chips

  1. In a small bowl, combine butter and garlic. Generously brush onto each bagel slice.
  2. Place a cooling rack on a cookie sheet. Arrange bagel slices on cooling rack. Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 10 minutes or until crisp. Remove from oven; set aside.

Wasabi Cream

  1. In a small bowl, whip cream until slightly thick. Add wasabi paste, to taste. Whip cream until it forms a soft shape; set aside.

Tip: For ease of slicing, purchase uncut bagels.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
