OMG! This was amazing! I even fudged things up a bit when I put the dish in the oven uncovered for the first half, so I tried to "fix" it by adding bit more milk beaten with an egg to the top, and then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and covered for the additional 30 minutes. Came out absolutely delicious with the most amazing texture! Will definitely make again.
What a lovely sweet treat Paula. My mom & I enjoyed this quick and easy to make casserole, very much. The flavor and texture were outstanding. I made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I did use mini bagels and scaled it down for two. It worked perfectly. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I will be making it again often.

I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
