Very good. I did change it up quite a bit…Since it was just my son and I, I only cut up two everything bagels and used a brownie instead of cake pan. I still used 7 eggs and about a cup or so of cream, with the seasonings. I used sauted red onion, red and yellow sweet peppers and spinach ( I didn’t have parsley). I split the casing on three bratwurst and sauted after veggies were close to done. For cheese, I used what I had on hand, shredded parm/mozzarella mix. I mixed cheese with soaking bagels. I scooped them out and placed on the bottom of the dish , then mixed in the sauted veggies/sausage in with left over egg mix and then pored over the bread.Added more cheese last 15 minutes of cooking. And it was very well received! Delicious! This is a very adaptable recipe.
This turned out fantastic! Only change I made was using 9 eggs vs. the 7. Made the entire recipe the night before. Covered tightly with foil. Baked an additional 10 minutes after uncovering (since I used 2 extra eggs). Super puffy when I took it out of the oven!My only recommendation is to bake it on a foil covered baking sheet to keep the bottom of your oven clean, as some of this deliciousness spilled over in baking, leaving an oily mess in the bottom! Saving recipe to make again!
I’m glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing your sizing up suggestions too!
Hey Marta this looks like a yummy recipe and a must try but the serving size is way too so I was wondering if the casserole could be frozen and reheated? Cheers, Kate
Hi again, Kate!
You can most certainly make the casserole as instructed, but instead of pouring it into a 9×13″ dish, scoop it into small pie tins or even muffin tins. Reduce the bake time to 25 minutes (for the muffin size) or 45 minutes (for the pie size) and once they’ve finished baking allow them to cool on the countertop. Once cool, pop them out and wrap well in plastic wrap or into freezer storage bags.
They’ll freeze for up to two months. When you’re ready to eat, you can allow them to thaw in the fridge, or heat them in the oven to make sure they’re nice and crisp.
I’m pretty sure this would work spectacularly.
I want to make it all the night before and reheat in the morning to munch on for an early road trip to go. Think it will still be okay/taste ok?
Yes, it will, Jules! I do this when I know I’m going to have a busy day ahead. Just pull it out of the fridge while your oven is preheating so the dish can warm up. This will prevent the dish from shattering (which is rare).
Probably the best dish to serve for breakfast, Marta. Something to delightfully start up your appetite in the morning. Definitely a recipe worth trying for! Thank you for sharing!
It’s my pleasure, Elizabeth!!
Hi this looks great, I’ve been searching for plan ahead breakfast ideas. One question though, is breakfast sausage mince meat with spices in it? Or actual sausages??
Hi Tamara! Yes, it’s seasoned minced meat that is usually sold in logs or a solid pack. You don’t want to use the smaller sausage links because those are too much work to peel.
Hi! I am the author’s husband, a career Soldier and a self-proclaimed knuckle-dragger. I am horrible in the kitchen and, that may be an understatement. However, I decided to take some initiative and make this recipe yesterday. This time, however, I followed the recipe to the letter and it came out perfect! I was able to serve Marta a bowl of this casserole and received nothing but compliments from her. I recommend this simple, yet delicious dish to any kitchen “newbie” out there.
Having it ready to bake first thing in the AM is the best. I let the cut up bagels dry overnight if I have time. Makes the dish a little more crusty. Can add another egg for extra liquid. I also use old dry bagels for my bread pudding. Same nice and crusty.! Yum.! Also your home made cinnamon rolls can be made ahead and left to raise in the frig over night and baked off in the AM.!
This was amazing…and even better…easy! I’ll be the first to admit that cooking is my least favorite thing to do. If I didn’t have to feed my kids you’d probably never catch me in the kitchen! I have three picky children who can never agree on anything, especially food, but each one of them loved this casserole and even had seconds. That almost never happens. It’s a must try. I’m definitely going to make this again for the holidays!
I’m so glad to hear it received approval from picky eaters. Children are something the best judges of a recipe, so I don’t take their opinions lightly. I’m glad you found it easy and tasty, Debra!
This recipe looks perfect for a dish to take to a party. However, since it’s bagel based, to me it’s screaming for cream cheese to be in there somewhere. Any thoughts?
I don’t really miss the cream cheese, but if you dice the cream cheese and fold it into the bake with the sausage and veggies, I think it would be a nice change of pace. You can either omit the cheddar, or keep it. Just bake as directed. Let me know how it turns out!
