We LOVED this recipe! It's super easy to make and is great for adding some variety to the week. I used fresh green/red bell pepper, onions, and celery. I also used thin wheat bagels instead of regular sized bagels. The boys and I LOVED it! We've made it a few times since then for brunch and dinner. I highly suggest you try it with the Banquet Brown 'N Serve Maple links. It gives it a slightly different flavor that we thought was delicious!
My family loved this casserole -- especially my husband, who typically doesn't eat breakfast with us due to his morning schedule. I made this for dinner and he loved it! I used whole wheat bagels and fresh bell pepper and onion (I had them on hand); I chopped the aromatics very finely and the kidlets never noticed or complained about them. I think it's the first time EVER they've eaten bell pepper without complaints. Woo hoo! This would be a great "make ahead" dish; you could prepare it in the morning (for a dinner meal) or make it at night (for breakfast), store it in the fridge and then bake it when ready. One tip: use a deep casserole dish or put a baking sheet under your dish once you've transferred the casserole to the oven. My casserole bubbled a lot and quite a bit of liquid spilled over into my oven. Once I added the baking sheet, the problem was solved.
This tex mex bagel bake makes for a great brinner or brunch. We are big fans of brinner in our house and this is very similar to a green pepper and ham stratta that I make whenever it is refrigerator clean out night. I've been known to toss the kitchen sink in mine. The breakfast sausage was a nice change of pace for me and its the first time I've ever used a bagel in making something like this. So far I've made this three separate times and each time I've made it slightly different because I was either out of an ingredient or forgot to go shopping. Still they've always come out great. Just be wary to avoid the one mistake I did make the second time I did this. I didn't have any egg beaters on hand, so I used eggs. Well, 5 large eggs equals one cup, so I needed 10 to replace the carton of egg beaters. It still came out good, but it did add to the prep time.
We are big big fans of BRINNER (aka breakfast for dinner) around here. In fact we tend to eat dinner'y stuff for breakfast more often than not. As a result this made a PERFECT dinner for my family. Easy to make, SUPER HEALTHY, gave me time to clean (ok play) while it cooked & reheated easily for my husband and me later. The Husband ADORED this. That said he's a big fan of all things southwest including SW Egg Beaters. My daughter liked it 'just fine' but spent lots of time & effort picking out the peppers and onions. I liked it (yet have to confess to doing the same thing as my daughter). I will definitely make this again for brunch or dinner, but next time I will chop up the onions and pepper (less easy to remove for both child and me) & most likely grab some gluten free bagels as by not eating the bread I found this a little less than satiating.
