Ingredients in the Eggs Benedict Casserole…
This egg bake casserole uses super easy ingredients!
You’ll need to have on hand or pick up English muffins, Canadian bacon (or ham!), eggs, milk, onion powder and paprika for the casserole.
For the hollandaise sauce you’ll need egg yolks, heavy whipping cream, lemon juice, a little Dijon mustard, and butter!
Making the Eggs Benedict Casserole…
This recipe is intended to be mixed up the night ahead, and refrigerate overnight.
Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with non-stick spray. This will help with the cleanup later!!
Cut the Canadian bacon into small cubes. You can also use ham if you prefer. Put half of the cubes in the bottom of the greased pan.
You’ll need to toast up the English muffins a bit. You can either crisp them up a bit in the toaster, or put them under the broiler. Adding a little crisp and brown to the edges adds to the flavor and texture of this egg bake.
Break up the toasted muffins into bite-size pieces. Place the muffin bites on top of the Canadian bacon cubes. Cover with the rest of the Canadian bacon. Yum!!!
In a large bowl whisk the eggs, milk, and onion powder.
Pour over the top of the muffins and Canadian bacon.
Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
Baking the Casserole…
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
To allow it to warm up a bit, take the Eggs Benedict Casserole out of the fridge a half hour before you’re ready to bake it.
Peel back the foil to sprinkle paprika on the top of the Eggs Benedict Casserole, but then recover. Leave the foil on the casserole and bake covered for 30 minutes.
Remove foil, and return casserole to oven. Continue to bake another 15 minutes until center is firm.
Making the Hollandaise Sauce…
Make up the hollandaise sauce during the last 10 minutes the casserole is baking.
In top of a double boiler or a metal bowl over simmering water, whisk egg yolks, cream, lemon juice and mustard until well blended.
Continually whisking, cook until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon. Reduce heat to very low. Very slowly drizzle in warm melted butter, whisking constantly.
Drizzle hollandaise sauce over the Eggs Benedict Casserole, and serve immediately.
