This recipe has been a huge success over at Betty Crocker! It has received lots of wonderful feedback. Let’s have a look at what some of the readers have said about it:
Made this on New Years Day for brunch and it was a hit. The bagel texture ended up being perfect on both top and bottom and it was enough food to feed 7 people (two + portions each)! I actually skipped adding the canadian bacon and thought it was just as good as an FYI. If you’re in more of a hurry, I definitely recommend cooking your bacon beforehand, but all in all, it was completely worth the wait. WILL be making this again.
Really, really good. We made it overnight for Christmas morning and so we toasted the bagel pieces (since they would be sitting in egg all night). We toasted them till they were almost like croutons–I think it really helped, not only because the texture was perfect the next morning but also to release flavor from the bagel seasoning. I didn’t do the Canadian bacon either, but it was a HUGE hit.
