Blueberry Bagel Bake

20131127-133725.jpg
I am one frugal gal… This morning, I searched through the fridge for left overs that looked to be past their prime. In the very back corner, I spotted a half eaten bag of blueberry bagels and I thought that they might taste delicious added to a breakfast bake made up of eggs, milk, bagels, and apples. To my delight, the end product tasted delicious!

Blueberry Bagel Bake

4 stale blueberry bagels, cubed (Use any flavor you like)
1 large apple, cored, peeled, and chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

Place cubed bagels in a greased deep dish pie plate; set aside. In a small microwave safe bowl, mix apple, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Microwave until apple is soft and juices bubble; about 3 minutes on high. Pour mixture over bagels; mix well. In a medium bowl, mix eggs, milk, vanilla and almond extract. Pour over bagel mixture making sure bread is completely soaked. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and syrup.

  1. This is such a good idea. I never thought about using bagels that way. I have a half-pack in the refrigerator right now that’s going to get used.

    1. You never know what you can rustle up with leftovers… This actually turned out pretty wonderful (that’s not always the case with some of my concoctions). Haha😊

    1. Use any flavor bagel you like, Carol. I think the cinnamon raisin bagel might be nice with vanilla nut extract or even maple nut extract. Thanks for your welcome comment. Have a good day!

  2. I’d love it if you moved right across the other side and the world and in to the house next door to me Linda! I have an unending stream of leftovers just waiting for your magic culinary touch! This looks absolutely scrummy. Please consider the move!! x

    1. It would be an absolute pleasure to live close to you… You could craft your beautiful needlework for me and I would cook for you… Now, I just need to convince my husband and family… It’s cold here so it shouldn’t be a problem!
