Putting together a full bagel spread is a lot of work, and you may spend more time artfully arranging the lox than spending time with your friends at brunch. Instead of the platter approach, give your friends a full bagel experience in casserole-form. Plus, you can use any stale savory bagels you have left over from last week (shh!).
Whisk together eggs and milk with cubed bagels in an assortment of flavors—pumpkernickle will add some fun dark colors and a toasty flavor, while sesame and poppy seed bagels will add a satisfying crunch. For extra flavor, add a spoonful of everything bagel seasoning, then mix it all together with sliced red onion and tomatoes. Dot the casserole with cream cheese, then bake until warm. Top that bad boy with torn lox, dill, and chives, then dive on in.
