How about crispy and crunchy rye bread chips for starters, tonight's cheese board, or as a little treat in the lunchbox? Whatever your reason for making these small delights, just know it is the perfect reason. Rye bread chips are simple and easy to make and take little time compared to how much flavour they give in return. Adults and kids alike will flock to the snack table when you serve a freshly toasted batch of golden-brown rye bread chips.


  • Preheat the oven to 250°C (fan oven).
  • Cut rye bread into 12 very thin slices. Brush them with oil and sprinkle with salt.
  • Cut each rye bread slice into two triangles and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Bake for about 8 minutes.
  • Let the rye bread chips cool on a baking tray.

Day-old bread makes great rye bread chips as it soaks the oil and turns perfectly crisp when toasted.


Allow the chips to cool completely before serving or storing, as they will continue to crisp as they cool.

A rustic snack with a satisfying crunch

If you need something to get you through the afternoon but do not want to go sweet, these rye bread chips can be your saviour. The satisfying crunch and the salty, earthy flavour can keep the little hunger at bay until dinner time.

When roasted, the chips get a slight sweetness, making every bite an exciting flavour experience. Adding olive oil and flake salt gives the chips more nuances to play around with. The salt is essential as it balances the heart and mildly nutty notes from the bread.

Serve alongside your favourite meals

Crispy rye bread chips also make the perfect companion to your favourite meals. They can serve as the crunchy element in a basic salad or as a side to a creamy soup. At receptions or as a starter, you can serve them with a selection of dips or toppings, such as aioli or salmon mousse. They also work wonders next to a plate of your favourite cheeses.

We have an extensive selection of recipes, so if you want other options with bread as a crunchy element, you might like our lentil salad or our cheese soup– both served with crunchy croutons. Of course, we also have an easy recipe for homemade croutons for you to try.

Experiment with the recipe

Sometimes, a simple recipe is the perfect starting point for creativity. A few simple tweaks can transform it into exactly what you desire.

Switching out regular salt with sea salt adds slightly different nuances without sacrificing its popular flavour. Sea salt tends to have a more complex flavour profile with a milder level of saltiness but more pronounced brininess and freshness.

Garlic will add a delicious savoury touch to the rye bread chips. Sprinkle with garlic powder for a hint of garlic or with fresh, minced garlic for a powerful punch.

Experiment with different herbs and spices to get a flavour that matches the rest of the meal. Go for paprika for a mild smoky flavour, chilli powder or cayenne pepper for a spicy touch, and rosemary, thyme, or oregano for herby flavours and aromas. You can add spices to the oil before brushing the bread or dust it on the chips before baking.
