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.

This easy make-ahead breakfast is loaded with delicious bites of everything bagels baked in a flavorful egg scramble with sausage, peppers, and a three-cheese combination.

Ingredients
  • 6 everything bagels lightly toasted
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup half and half

Instructions
  1. Break the bagels into bite-sized pieces and place into a buttered 9x13 casserole dish.
  2. In a large bowl, crack the eggs. Add the half and half, mustard, cayenne pepper, and salt/pepper. Whisk briskly for 1 minute.
  3. Pour the egg mixture over the bagel pieces, try to cover each one.

Recipe Notes

*Lightly toasted bagels are able to absorb the custard much better, but still have all of the flavor that fresh bagels have. Stale bagels can also be used but I prefer fresh and toasted!
