This recipe came from a friend when she and her family still lived around here. She cooked a wonderful dinner for our homeschool group, and she used these little dealies as croutons for her salad. When I made them the first time, the kids and I started munching on them before dinner was ready and they never had a fighting chance at making it to the table (the croutons, not the kids). Since then I've never even attempted to fix them as croutons - they've become a favorite snack of ours!
1/2 stick butter
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 pkg. onion bagels
3 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
In large frying pan, melt butter with garlic salt over medium heat. Cut semi-split bagels, while whole, into eighths, then break apart. Toss into butter and stir frequently over medium heat until lightly toasted. When browned, sprinkle in Parmesan cheese. Eat while still warm.
NOTE: If you have a big enough pan, this recipe can be doubled easily. And devoured instantly.
