serves 6-8

1 tablespoon butter, softened
5-6 large bagels (any variety), chopped into 1″ chunks
1 pound bacon, cooked and chopped
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
12 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use a paper towel to rub the bottom and sides of a large (13×9) baking dish with the softened butter. Arrange 5-6 chopped bagels in the baking dish. They should mostly fill the baking dish. Scatter the bacon and cheese over the bagels. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the bagels, bacon, and cheese. Press down on the mixture, so that the bagels are mostly submersed in the egg mixture. Allow the mixture to rest for about 15-20 minutes in the refrigerator, so that the bagels absorb some of the egg mixture. Bake for about 45 minutes.
