Eggs Benedict Casserole Recipe

Here's a casserole as tasty as eggs Benedict, but without the hassle. Simply assemble the ingredients ahead, and bake it the next morning for an elegant breakfast or brunch. —Sandie Heindel, Liberty, Missouri
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 45 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 12 ounces Jones Dairy Farm Canadian Bacon, chopped
  • 6 English muffins, split and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  • 1. Place half of the Canadian bacon in a greased 3-qt. or 13x9-in. baking dish; top with English muffins and remaining bacon. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk and onion powder; pour over top. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 375°. Remove casserole from refrigerator while oven heats. Sprinkle top with paprika. Bake, covered, 35 minutes. Uncover; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • 3. In top of a double boiler or a metal bowl over simmering water, whisk egg yolks, cream, lemon juice and mustard until blended; cook until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon and temperature reaches 160°, whisking constantly. 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).

"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 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."

"My family of four all enjoyed the recipe. One child loved the sauce, and one thought it too mustardy, so to each his own on that one. The amount of sauce called for is OK (and good for those watching calories), but if that doesn't bother you, more sauce would give it a bit more zip in my opinion. I made a half recipe in a 7 x 11 dish and used skim instead of 2% milk, and it worked fine."

If I were to make this again, I would use a shallow pan and bake uncovered the entire time to crisp up the muffins. Flavors were good, but the texture was just to mushy."

"My husband participates in a weekly "men's breakfast bible study" where we spouses often prepare breakfast casseroles for them to take along. Last week was our turn, so I thought this recipe would be something different to try. They (we) loved it! I did make a couple of changes, in that I used Land O'Lakes ham lunch meat in lieu of the Canadian bacon, and then used the prepackaged Hollandaise sauce. We will definitely add this recipe to our favorites list and it is sure to make a repeat performance. quick and easy, and a nice change from the traditional hashbrown egg casserole."
