    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.

    Superb!!! Church family scarfed it, and it was so easy, We used 1 egg, rather than substitute, and it was fine.(didn't know the Substitute = 4 eggs). My husband is a bread pudding officianado, and he loved it!!

    Not as good as my mom's , but pretty darn good. I didn't have Craisins, so I used an extra apple. I also used cinnamon raisin bagels. This recipe is quite forgiving and you can use and substitute different ingredients. Fresh eggs you most certainly can substitute.

    I used 2 cranberry bagels and 2 pumpkin spice bagels and used regular eggs and milk. I did not have any raisins on hand so I left those out and used pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon. It was so good. I will surely make this again. With all the different flavors of bagels the possibilities are endless.. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
