  • 2 tablespoons - extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for greasing pan
  • 10 - large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups - half-and-half
  • 6 - oil-packed Calabrian chiles, drained, seeded and minced
  • 1 pounds - day-old sesame bagels (3 large), cut into 1-inch pieces (about 9 cups)
  • 10 ounces - button mushrooms, stemmed and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 - small bunch of curly kale, stemmed and chopped (about 5 cups)
  • 1 pints - cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/4 cups - finely chopped basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons - minced rosemary
  • 2 - scallions, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces - fresh mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cups - shredded parmigiano-reggiano cheese
  • Directions:

    Lightly grease a 3-quart oval baking pan. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with half-and-half, chiles, 2 teaspoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Stir in the bagel pieces and let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil; add mushrooms and kale and season with salt and pepper. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally until tender and wilted, about 7 minutes.

    Stir in the cherry tomatoes, basil and rosemary and cook until tomatoes start to soften, about 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in scallions; season with salt and pepper. Let cool slightly.

    Fold vegetables and shredded cheeses into bagel mixture; then transfer to prepared baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove plastic wrap and cover baking pan with foil. Bake for 40 minutes, remove the foil and bake for 45 minutes more or until top is puffed and golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

    Let stand for 20 minutes before serving.
