Preheat the oven to 400℉ and add the bagel cubes to a large sheet pan. Toast for about 10 minutes, until golden brown.
Meanwhile, butter a 9" x 13" baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper, minced chives, red onion, capers and dill. Add the grated cheese and mix to combine.
Once bagels are toasted, add them to the prepared baking dish. Pour the egg custard mixture over the bagel cubes, pressing down to submerge. Dot with the cream cheese cubes (pressing some down to submerge). Cover tightly with tin foil and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
