Everyone loves a good ol’ everything bagel (they’re the second most popular after plain) but when you throw it into a casserole with a loaded egg scramble and three cheeses, it becomes breakfast heaven.

Making this ahead of time is the best part; you wake up with that craving for a bagel and some eggs, and all you have to do is pop the casserole in the oven, grab a cup of coffee, and relax.

Have you tried Seattle’s Best Coffee® before? You will think you’re sitting at a café. I’m telling you, it’s the real deal. Their Post Alley Blend® ground coffee is my favorite. It’s a nice dark roast that has this rich, bold flavor.

I never paid too much attention to what coffee brand I used until I tried this stuff. Now I can’t go back. I’ve since learned that Seattle’s Best Coffee sources the highest quality Brazilian coffees, tasted numerous times before going in your cup. Now it all makes sense!

☝️ You can grab yourself some of Seattle’s best coffee on Amazon, at Target, or at Walmart! They have roast and ground as well as K-Cup® pods.

Speaking of coffee, grab a cup and I’ll tell you all about this breakfast casserole!
