Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And I think it deserves so much more than cereal tossed in a bowl and drenched in milk. But who is going to haul out the skillets, toaster, baking sheets and 20 ingredients before the first cup of coffee has kicked in on a school day? Not even this early riser! But I will prep this ridiculously delicious breakfast casserole the night before and pull off a gold medal breakfast!
Easy, Cheesy Everything Bagel Overnight Breakfast Casserole!!
That’s right … you can make this overnight breakfast casserole the day before you are going to wow your family and friends. For this recipe, instead of using sliced bread to soak up the eggs, I chopped up everything bagels. I love the little boost of flavor that you get from the onions, garlic, sesame seeds and salt on the bagels. Then, I poured a seasoned egg mixture over them, added chopped bacon AND cheddar cheese and popped it in the fridge so everyone could get to know each other a little better.
In the morning, I popped it in the oven and waited for my sleepy heads to wander down the hallway, following their noses … this thing smells awesome as it bakes!!
The best thing about casseroles – even breakfast casseroles – is that you can tweak them to fit whatever you might have in your pantry and fridge!
- Use asiago cheese bagels instead of everything bagels.
- How about browned breakfast sausage or cubed ham instead of bacon?
- Replace the bacon with sauteed mushrooms, onions and peppers for a vegetarian version.
- Add some hot sauce and pepper jack cheese for a little heat.
With the holidays right around the corner, this overnight breakfast casserole is perfect to feed a crowd! You can serve it at a Fall brunch or even prep it for Christmas morning breakfast!
