Reviews forEggs Benedict Casserole
"This is delicious. My daughter in law and I love Eggs Benedict and this is a quick way to make it."
"Morning after Christmas dish. I used ham in place of Can. bacon. Used sour dough bread in place of English Muffins, baked 1 hr., then uncovered & added 30 min. The center came out clean although texture was too soft for me. Made my own Mock Hollandaise which includes Monterey Jack cheese for the texture.Nummy nummy..........a do-over for sure."
"I also made this for Christmas morning last year and will be making it again this year. It was a hit with my whole family. I do think I'm going to add some things this year though...I'm thinking asparagus and tomatoes...maybe spinach instead of asparagus. A breakfast place we like has benedicts with those items, so I know they will go and, for me, I really like veggies and color in my breakfast bake. I used instant hollandaise...I'll do that again. I'm sure homemade is better but I've made hollandaise before and thought it was a pain in the rump."
"This was very good. However I think I've had other egg casseroles I like just as much. If I want eggs benedict taste, I think I'd prefer real eggs benedict."
"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."
"In Canada we call Canadian bacon "ham". LOL"
"Just delicious. And the hollandaise is so yummy!"
"This is a great recipe and so simple!! I halved it since I was only making it for two. Instead of Canadian bacon I used deli ham and regular bacon. After reading reviews, I decided to toast the english muffins to help them keep their form. Lots of flavor and elegant for a special brunch."
