My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Parmesan Bagel Chips

Can't remember if I've posted this before or not, but it's worth a repeat. These are so easy, who would ever buy bagel chips. If you want to really get crazy, make your own bagels.

Parmesan Bagel Chips
32 chips
print recipe

4 plain, egg, sesame, poppy seed, or onion bagels
6 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup (2 ounces) freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Have baking sheets ready.

Cut each bagel horizontally into 8 thin slices. A mandoline is a great tool for this.

Melt the butter with the oil; cool to lukewarm. Stir in the cheese. Add to the bag and shake the bag to coat all the slices with the butter mixture.

Arrange in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake 12 to 15 minutes until crisp and golden, turning the slices once.

Cool to room temperature, then store in an airtight container.
