Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • You want to make sure to give the casserole enough time to sit, so you want to refrigerate it overnight before baking. If you don’t have that much time, be sure to let it sit for at least 2 hours. 
  • This recipe calls for plain bagels, but you can be creative and use other flavors that pair well with bananas. Try using cinnamon raisin or blueberry bagels for additional flavors.

  • Add more fruit! While we love the banana flavor, you can easily add other options. Try strawberries, blueberries, or even raspberries. Just be sure to cut them all to bite size pieces first. 
  • This is best enjoyed right away after it is baked.
