Asiago Bagel Breakfast Bake

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday.  I made this Asiago Bagel Breakfast Bake recently for a friend get together.  You should totally surprise your family and make this for them on morning during the holidays.  Serve it with Sausage Pinwheels or bacon and fresh fruit.  If you haven't made Sausage Pinwheels for your family yet, I highly recommend them.  We have them several times a year but they are definitely a holiday morning staple!

I make a traditional breakfast casserole or even a Breakfast pizza on occasion but I have to say, I love this Asiago Bagel Breakfast Bake.  It is easy and has a great flavor!  Chris brought this recipe home from work.  A coworker brought it to work and Chris raved about it so I knew I had to make it.

Once again, my picture isn't the best.  It seems I am always in a hurry - for guests or dinner but I guess you can get a general idea.

Asiago Bagel Breakfast Bake

8 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups whole milk
1 tsp fresh chopped tarragon or 1/2 tsp dried
1/4 tsp paprika
freshly ground black pepper to taste
6 oz Monterrey Jack Cheese, grated
6 oz. Asiago cheese, grated
4 Asiago Cheese bagels (I got these from Panera)

In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, milk, salt, tarragon, paprika and season with pepper.  Grate and mix the cheeses in another bowl.   Cut the bagels in bite-size pieces. Grease a 2 qt casserole or souffle dish.  Starting with the bagel pieces, alternate layering the bagel pieces and grated cheese into the dish.  Pour the egg mixture evenly over everything.  Cover the dish and refrigerate overnight.  Preheat oven to 350 and bake uncovered for 45 minutes to 1 hour til eggs are set and top is golden brown.

It's always so hard to get a picture and the meal on the table. I am always saying, hold on just a minute so we can get a picture :). I didn't do it yesterday for a couple of things I made for Christmas dinner but we ate while things were hot.

This looks SO delicious. I will be making this New Year's weekend.
