"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."

"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."

"So easy! We used cinnamon raisin bagels, too, and also substituted fresh whole cranberries and large flume raisins. We made a larger batch and needed a bit more milk/egg mixture. Watch that the edges don't get overcooked and dark. Smelled great and tasted yummy with cream on top."

"I used raisin cinnamon bagels. Apart from that followed the recipe exactly. Cooked 5 hours on low and stirred once half way through cooking as I noticed the edges against the crockpot were starting to overcook. It was wonderful as a cold night dessert."

"This was so deliciously good after a long day. I used cinnamon raisin bagels for added flavor and it was a hit. My advice is to serve it warm and to put a dollop of Greek yogurt on top and it's out of this world. I'll definitely be making this again."
