Let's Make Panera Bread Co's Asiago Bagel Breakfast Bake

Hey guys!  Popping in today to share a great recipe that would be perfect for New Year's Day.  It takes a bit of planning because you have to make it the day before, but it's well worth the effort!  Also, it's meatless so if you have any vegetarians around for breakfast this is a perfect dish for them.

Kayla and Ian came over Christmas morning for breakfast before we headed to my parents.  I had decided to fix this breakfast bake because it is assembled the night before and in the morning I just had to pop it in the oven and let it bake while I got ready.  I had found this recipe on the years ago and had fixed it for a girls weekend.  Everyone had loved it then, and it was a hit on Christmas morning as well!

Here's What You Need
8 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon (or 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon)
1/4 teaspoon paprika
6 ounces shredded mornterey jack cheese
6 ounces grated asiago cheese
4 asiago cheese bagels

Here's What You Do
As mentioned above, this dish must be prepared the night before you plan to bake it.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, salt, milk, tarragon and paprika.  Add fresh ground pepper to taste. 

Mix the schredded cheeses together in a bowl.  Cut the bagels into small bite-size pieces.

Grease a 2-quart souffle or casserole dish and, starting with the bagel pieces, place them in the dish in alternating layers with the shredded cheeses.  Pour the egg mixture evenly over all, cover the dish, and place it in the refrigerator overnight.

Bake, uncovered, in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1 hour.  The top will be a nice golden brown.

We served the breakfast bake with roasted potatoes and bacon.  It was a great breakfast and came together quite easily.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

  1. Mouth is watering over here!! This sounds a little like my Monte Cristo casserole with lots of good cheese. Pinning and planning on trying this soon.
