What to do with left over bagels?

I was at a party this weekend and ended up with a bag of assorted savory bagels (onion, garlic, rosemary, tomato basil, whole wheat, cornmeal, salt, etc.)

Any creative ideas for leftover bagels?

EDIT: I went with Savory Bread Pudding. I had 5 bagels. A broke them up into little chunks in a casserole dish. (The salt bagel was very hard) Then I mixed 7 eggs with 4 cups of milk and poured that over the bagel chunks with some poultry seasoning and put it in a pan of water in a 300F oven. I stuck in a thermometer and let it cook to 160F, which took 3 hours.

It was very good.

Chop into rough pieces in fry in a little garlic oil to make croutons.

Slice thinly, brush on some oil and bake to make bagel chips.

Pizza bagels.

For the ones I wouldn't eat in the morning with cream cheese, I would either make croutons or use them for sandwich bread.

Spread with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, then put in toaster oven for pizza bagels!

put on mayo, turkey (smoked works best), a slice of tomato, a slice of your favorite white cheese (I use farmer cheese, or provolone). Either nuke till hot, if you're in a hurry, or toast under a broiler/in a toaster oven, if you're not in a hurry.
This is one of my favorite sandwiches, but I can't find any savory bagels but everything ones here in the midwest. So, I sub onion kaiser rolls.

Shove them all in your face as fast as you can!! least, that's what I do with bagels. Explains why I don't keep them around...

I agree with this. :p

I wonder if they could be crumbed down and used as stuffing...

I'm sure...cut them open and let them dry out on the counter overnight, break them into pieces and pulse in a food processor.

bagels freeze very well. when i go to my (semi) local shop, i grab a bag of day olds and freeze them in pairs. then the biggest problems is remembering to keep cream cheese in the house.

"biggest problems is remembering to keep cream cheese in the house"

LOL ... I SO agree.

This. Stale bagels still toast up pretty well after being frozen. Not nearly as good as fresh from the oven and still a little warm but definitely satisfactory.

If you do freeze them, I highly recommend slicing them first. Makes them much easier to re-toast.

Chips and freezing are great ideas. If they've already started going stale, you could use the stale ones to make a savory bread pudding with eggs, cheese, veggies, milk, and herbs.

Send them to me as I have have a TON of cream cheese and no bagels! :D

Use them in a savory bread pudding.

Make little pizzas.

Yes All of the above are awesome ideas. If you are going to make bagel chips you can ask your deli guy to do them on his slicer. it's uniform and really good for parties.

Ground up. These are actually really good in that state. In any kind of ground meat dish they hold the moisture better that bread does. They are also great as a replacement for the bread in gespacho.

Or once ground add some eggwhite, some of the topping they have a bit of olive oil and such and make a savory granola crouton. Chunked toasted bagel croutons might be too hard or chewy.
