I've had this recipe saved for years but lost track of it until recently. I'm posting it here for safe-keeping and hope to make it the next time that my daughter's family comes for a weekend.

This is a make-ahead breakfast casserole with bagels and smoked salmon. Viv Raives, Cambria, Calif. was the $400 winner in the Egg Stratas and Casseroles Category, (May 2002) for a contest for Better Homes and Gardens.
