Breakfast Bagel Bake

This is a great breakfast casserole for the holidays or a brunch. You make it the night before and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. Just throw  the dish in the oven the next morning. Serve with some fruit and some muffins or danish, mimosas and some coffee. In no time you have brunch. So easy and tasty. Also going to try to make it with french toast bagels to see if it’s like the baked french toast recipes everyone makes. Stay tuned in.

Serves 6:

Ingredients:

4 everything bagels, chopped
8 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup half and half
8 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
