New York Breakfast Casserole

Recipe by FLKeysJen
READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • The night before serving the casserole, spread one half of the bagel cubes in the bottom of a greased 9-by-13-inch pan.
  • Dot with half of the Neufchatel cheese, and mix in the red onion and tomatoes.
  • Make one more layer with the bagel cubes and Neufchatel cheese.
  • Whisk eggs with milk, salt and pepper. Pour mixture over the bagels. Cover pan tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove casserole from the fridge, uncover and bake until casserole has puffed, turned golden brown and cooked through. (A knife inserted into the center of the casserole and rotated slightly should not release any liquid.) This will take about an hour. You may cover the pan with foil for the last 15-20 minutes if the top bagels are getting too brown for your liking.
  • Let cool a few minutes, and serve in big scoops with a sprinkle of capers and a side of lox or bacon.
