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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Whisk together eggs, milk, everything bagel seasoning, salt,
and pepper in a large bowl. Add bagel pieces, red onion, and tomatoes; stir to coat. Let
stand at room temperature 20 minutes.

Step 2

Fold chilled cream cheese cubes into egg mixture. Pour mixture into a lightly greased
13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Step 3

Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and set, about 30 minutes. Let cool 10
minutes before serving. Top evenly with salmon. Sprinkle with dill and chives.
