1lbsweet or hot Italian sausagecooked and crumbled
1cupshredded Asiago cheese
2cupshredded mozzarella cheese
4green onion thinly sliced
1/4cupgrated Parmesan cheese
1/2tspblack pepperor to taste
Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking with cooking spray. Arrange 1/2 of the cubed bagels over the bottom of the dish.
Mix the Asiago cheese with the mozzarella cheese and divide in half. Place 1/2 into a plastic bag and into the refrigerator.
Sprinkle 1/2 of the bagel cubes with 1/2 of the cooked sausage, 1/2 of the sliced green onions and 1/2 of the shredded cheese mixture. Repeat reserving 1/2 of the cheese and 2 Tbsp green onion for garnishing.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, heavy cream, beaten eggs, Parmesan cheese, salt, black pepper and ground mustard.
Pour the custard over the bagels and sausage. Gently press the bread into the custard. Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight.
To prepare: Remove the plastic wrap and sprinkle the remaining shredded Asiago-Mozzarella cheese mixture on top. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake for 45-55 minutes until golden and puffed up.
Rest on the counter for 5 minutes.
Just before serving, sprinkle the top with the reserved green onion.
Cube the bagels and leave on the cutting board on the counter for a couple of hours to dry out. This will ensure the bagel cubes absorb all of the custard.
