"Just wondering. As a Jew, I know bagels. Only time I have heard of them other than here is from a friend of a friend who said that they give you wheat (hard enough to kill someone if thrown lol) bagels. Whole. At the store, like Albertsons, Vons, and at deli's that sell them , have not seen them."

"My husband loves Bread not so much. But this was reallllllyyyyyy good. Instead of the wheat bagels I used Cinnamon/Raisin Bagels. Was really delicious but don't forget the cool whip on top. This recipe is a keeper."

"Not bad. Is better when right out of the crock pot. Next time try different bagels."

"Absolutely tasty. Used the bagels, cinnamon & raisin. Used 7 eggs instead. Used 3 Granny Smith apples and craisins. I doubled the recipe as we had a crowd. I also used a 7 qt. crock pot. It had to cook longer, of course, so I cooked it on high for 5 hours and then on low for a little over 3 and it was just perfect. Watched the edges, tho. A good one to start with."
