1 piece with about 2 tablespoons sauce equals 286 calories, 19 g fat (10 g saturated fat), 256 mg cholesterol, 535 mg sodium, 16 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 14 g protein.

Directions

Reduce heat to very low. Very slowly drizzle in warm melted butter, whisking constantly. Serve immediately with casserole. Yield: 12 servings (1-2/3 cups sauce).

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 18, 2015

"This was very quick to assemble and I always appreciate brunch recipes that you can make the night before. However, I didn't care for the taste or texture of this dish. The texture was quite mushy - like bread pudding. Maybe toasting the muffins first would have helped like others have suggested. The flavour was quite bland, I would definitely suggest adding something other than just onion powder to the eggs - salt and pepper for sure.. I made my own recipe for hollandaise so can't comment on the one for this recipe. Unfortunately I won't be keeping the leftovers."

"Very easy and quick to prepare. Nice flavor. I also used the packaged hollandaise sauce. Next time, I'll try making my own."

"This casserole really lacked flavor. All I could taste was the hollandaise sauce. I made this for breakfast when we had overnight guests -eight for breakfast, including my family. Most of the casserole was leftover, which tells me that no one enjoyed it."
