I made this for my family this Thanksgiving weekend and I think I'd give it 5 stars with a few changes but 4 as is. Definitely increase the bacon to 1 pound or more I used 1 pound and it didn't seem like quite enough bacon flavor. Also next time I'd double the onions and saute green/red peppers as well. It needs more flavor. Following others I increased to 14 eggs and I used 2-1/4 cup milk. I cubed the bagels it was too difficult to slice thin and used "The Works" (everything) bagels. I also doubled the cheese but I think it would have been good to put one cup between layers and a 1/2 to 1 cup on top. The parsley didn't do much for the dish but some added spices would be great. Needed a little more pepper and I'd add a small amount of salt if your diet allows or let everybody do their own at the table. All in all this was easy and very good it just needed some modifications and more seasoning. I think we'll try it with diced ham next time. It is a keeper. Read More

Ok I am the minority on this one. Neither the hubby or myself liked this one. It was very inexpensive...which is the reason I wanted to try this. The onion was overpowering and it just didn't do much for us. I know we would much rather just have some eggs and a bagel. Thanks for the post anyway. Read More

This was awesome!! I tore the bagel's into bite size pieces so that it would be easier to cut. I then sprayed some butter spray on the bagel-bites and I then lightly toasted them in the oven under the broiler. I thought it seemed like them may end of soggy. I also doubled up on the bacon after making it with the called for amount and it looked like not enough. I put a little extra cheddar after the final layer and it looked beautiful. This recipe had everyone calling for the recipe!! I can't wait to make it again and add some tomatoes bell peppers and whatever other vege's are in the fridge. Read More

This is good tasting but took a little longer to prepare the night before than I had thought. Also fitting the dish in the fridge overnight can be a problem for some. One problem I noted was the toughness of the top layer of bagel slices. It's a nice idea but they came out very hard and tough requiring a knife to eat. You need to either leave off the top bagel layer or make a larger amount of the egg filling so the top bagels are completely covered. Read More

I have made this several times and it always turns out great the bagels are never mushy. I use 14 eggs 2 1/4 cups of milk and 1 whole lb of bacon. I add 1 cup shredded cheese salt pepper 1 tsp mustard powder and 1 tsp onion powder(because I don't feel like chopping and cooking an onion) to the egg mix. Then I tear the bagels up into pieces and let them sit in the egg mix for about 1/2 hour while I'm cooking the bacon with the "Bacon for a family or crowd" recipe. I use scissors to cut the bacon into pieces and mix it into the egg mix. I spray a 9x13 with cooking oil spray and pour the whole bowl in. I top it with some parm cheese and another cup of shredded cheddar. I top it with aluminum foil and cook for 30 minutes then I take the foil off and cook it another 20 minutes. It turns out puffy and beautiful. This is my favorite breakfast casserole and I've tried MANY. Read More

This recipe is wonderful! I made this for my husband's family Christmas morning and it was a big hit. I did make some changes after reading other reviews. I used everything bagels (chopped) used turkey bacon added 2 extra eggs added an extra 1/2 cup of milk and omitted the parm cheese (just used extra cheddar). Also baked at 375 for 40 minutes. I will definitely make this again and again! Read More

I made this recipe for a brunch with my Moms group and it was a big hit (even the kids liked it!) The only things I did differently were I ended up using a smaller pan (which meant thicker layers so I had to cook it a little longer 45min.) and I covered the casserole during the first 15/20 minutes. Then I uncovered it for the remaining baking time. The top layer didn't get burned or wasn't tough and everything cooked through nicely. Lastly I used turkey bacon instead of regular bacon. This recipe is a keeper and I will definitely be making this dish again!!! Read More

My family enjoyed this recipe. I added 2 extra eggs left out the onion and added extra cheese to the top towards the end of baking. I also added the crumbled bacon on top at the end of baking (we like the bacon crisp.) When I cooked bacon inside the casserole I notice it gets chewy. I cooked it at 350 for 45 minutes...it came out perfect! Read More

I made an 8x8 version to feed 4. I sauted the onions seperate because they just burned with the bacon and were all greasy. I used plain bagels and they worked great. This dish was picture perfect and the tops of the bagels were golden at exactly 30 mins. 8x8 version: 6 slices of bacon diced; 1/4 cup chopped onion; 2 plain bagels (sliced into 8 pieces 4 placed on bottom and 4 on top); 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese; 5 eggs beaten (could use 4 eggs); 1 cup milk; 1-2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley; pinch of pepper; 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese.
