Ingredients

  • 1 Pound chorizo sausage
  • 2 bagels, toasted and cut into large cubes
  • 2 1/2 Cups shredded provolone cheese
  • 1 Cup Parmesan cheese
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 Cups half-and-half cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper

Directions

 

In a large skillet, cook the chorizo sausage over medium heat until crisp and then drain. Season the bagel croutons with salt, pepper, and paprika, and then place the them on the bottom of a greased baking dish. Sprinkle with the cheeses and the sausage. In a large bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour over the casserole. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. 

Bagel Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Bagel Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
