If you don’t eat the whole bag of bagels right away – don’t worry, this recipe uses up those stale bagels!
Melt 3 tablespoons butter with 2 chopped garlic cloves in a saucepan. Slice stale plain bagels crosswise into thin rounds. Brush the tops with melted garlic butter and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Bake 10 minutes at 325 degrees F; flip, brush with more butter, sprinkle with more grated Parmesan and bake 10 more minutes.
