Cinnamon Bagel Bread Pudding

My son works at a bagel shop and always brings home leftover cinnamon bagels. We hate to waste food since we are a large family with five kids, so I came up with this incredible-tasting bread pudding that everyone loves. —Rebecca Moreland, Bristol, Tennessee

    Just made this and it was delicious!! Only had a few modifications: used 5 bagels instead of 4 (thats how many I had to use up) but kept the liquid the same, and added 1 T cinnamon and 1 t nutmeg for the nice warm flavor. Once everything was in the baking dish we let it sit in the fridge for one hour to let the flavors mix before we put it in the oven. While it was cooking the whole house smelled like cinnamon! This was so good, we are going to make it all the time now, thanks!
