If you have any left-over bagels around from the week, then this recipe is a good way to use them all up...I usually make this one on a Saturday night, so I can have it for Sunday brunch...the cheddar cheese can be replaced with Swiss, Colby or Monterey Jack if desired...a wonderful Brunch recipe. (note: plan ahead, this casserole needs to sit in fridge overnight)
