Sharing is caring!

Everything Bagel Breakfast Casserole – delicious make-ahead breakfast featuring Everything Bagel seasoning on fresh bagels, then topped with cream cheese and lots of deliciously crispy bacon!

When it gets close to the holidays, I love finding recipes that I can make ahead or freeze until ready to use. November and December are busy months for us, so I make sure to plan meals that do not take up a lot of my time, like this Everything Bagel Breakfast Casserole.

This recipe reminds me a lot of a french toast casserole or a bread pudding.

Let's get this casserole baked for the family!

How to Make Everything Bagel Breakfast Casserole

For this recipe you will need —

  • 5 Everything bagels
  • 1 pound of bacon, sliced and cooked
  • 2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, cubed
  • 8 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • Chives for garnish

This recipe can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator overnight, or you can bake right away if you want. If you love Pioneer Woman as much as I do, she has a version of this overnight casserole as well.

Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Cut up your everything bagels into 1-inch cubes and place them in a bowl. Set them aside. Mix together the eggs, heavy cream, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

Now, layer your breakfast casserole like this —

Place 1/2 of your bagels into the casserole dish. Top it with 1/2 the bacon, 1/2 the cream cheese cubes, and 1/2 of the shredded cheese.

Repeat the process.

Once you have all of that in, pour the egg. mixture over the top of the bread. Use a spatula to push the bread cubes down so that all the pieces get wet with the. mixture.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 40 minutes uncovered. Serve garnished with chopped chives for the perfect breakfast.

Can I Freeze This Breakfast Casserole Before Cooking It?

To make ahead/freeze this casserole: you can freeze this unbaked casserole for up to 2 months. Cover very tightly with plastic wrap and foil and then place in the freezer.

When you want to serve it, thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then bake it as normal. Be sure to remove the foil and the plastic wrap before baking it.

You can pair this delicious Everything Bagel Breakfast Casserole with my Parmesan Rosemary Roasted Potatoes that would be perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even dinner!
