Tasty Tuesday - Bagel Breakfast Casserole

My bridesmaids and I enjoyed this recipe the morning of my wedding.  You make it the night before, then pop it into the oven in the morning.  It would make a terrific Christmas morning breakfast and tastes great served with mimosas!

Asiago Bagel Breakfast Bake

8 eggs
2 cups milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried tarragon
1/4 tsp paprika
6 oz grated monterey jack or mild cheddar cheese
6 oz grated asiago cheese
4 asiago bagels (you can find these at Panera Bread or just use plain bagels)

This dish must be prepared the night before you plan to bake it.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, salt, milk, tarragon and paprika. Add fresh ground pepper to taste.

Mix the grated cheeses together in a bowl.

Cut the bagels into small bite-size pieces. 

Grease a 2-quart souffle or casserole dish and, starting with the bagel pieces, place them in the dish in alternating layers with the grated cheese.

Pour the egg mixture evenly over all, cover the dish, and place it in the refrigerator overnight. 

Bake it uncovered, in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1 hour, until the top is golden brown.

Tips:  I used plain bagels I got from the grocery store, and it was still delicious!  Also, rather than 6 oz of 2 different cheeses, I bought one bag of Sargento Mozzarella and Asiago shredded cheese.

    I stopped over after reading your comment at the Cafe...tears welled up and I'm so glad you commented...none of us know. Saying "I love you" is indeed a legacy we leave until we meet again.

    Peace to you on this journey...and may you find JOY!
