1 9x13-inch casserole


  • nonstick cooking spray

  • 3 plain bagels, split

  • 4 large eggs

  • ½ cup all-purpose baking mix

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 7 ounces smoked salmon or lox, diced

  • 1 medium white onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages light cream cheese, softened

  • 1 ½ cups sour cream

  • cup chopped fresh dill

  • ½ cup shredded reduced-fat Swiss cheese

  • ½ cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup chopped fresh chives


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch pan with nonstick spray.

  2. Toast bagels.

  3. Beat eggs, baking mix, and milk in a bowl until well blended. Toss salmon, onion, and garlic together in a second bowl. Whip cream cheese, sour cream, and dill together in a third bowl.

  4. Cut toasted bagels into bite-sized pieces and place in the bottom of the prepared pan. Pour 1/2 of the egg mixture over the bagels, top with salmon mixture, then sprinkle with 1/2 of the Swiss and Monterey Jack cheeses. Pour in remaining egg mixture, top with cream cheese mixture, and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Season with pepper.

  5. Cover and bake in the center of the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Uncover and bake until egg is set and cheese is nice and bubbly, about 10 minutes more.

  6. Sprinkle chives over top and serve hot.
