  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 9 bagels (your choice of flavor), cubed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cubed and softened to room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese, plus 1 additional cup for topping
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup milk of your choice
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives, plus 1 additional tablespoon for topping
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour melted butter into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and turn to coat dish. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients (except the 1 cup of Parmesan and 1 tablespoon of chives for topping.)
  • Pour mixture into prepared casserole dish and sprinkle 1 cup grated Parmesan over top.
  • Bake in 400 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, or until eggs are fairly set (they may continue to cook a bit after removing the casserole from the oven so don’t fret if they’re still a tiny bit runny.)
  • Let cool slightly and sprinkle on additional tablespoon of chopped fresh chives before serving.


  1. Feel free to use any flavor bagels you prefer in this recipe, but savory flavors will tend to pair better with the smoked salmon.
  2. You can assemble this casserole the night before you plan to serve it, store it overnight in the refrigerator, and just pop it in the oven the next morning.
  3. I made this in my 9-by-13-inch Le Creuset covered casserole dish, making it perfectly portable!
