  1. Place the bacon and onion in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and set aside. Slice each bagel into 4 thin slices.
  2. Arrange 6 bagel slices in the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover with the bacon and onion mixture, followed by the Cheddar cheese. Top with remaining bagel slices.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, parsley, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the bagel layers. Cover, and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Uncover the chilled bagel dish, and bake in the preheated oven 25 to 30 minutes, or until eggs are firm. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve warm.

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.



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.



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.
