Make-Ahead Eggs Benedict Toast Cups
When I was growing up, we had a family tradition of having eggs Benedict with champagne and orange juice for our Christmas breakfast. But now that I’m cooking, a fussy breakfast isn’t my style. I wanted to come up with a dish I could make ahead that would mimic the flavors of traditional eggs Benedict and would also freeze well. Friends, all I can say is, this one fits the bill! —Lyndsay Wells, Ladysmith, British Columbia
- 6 English muffins, split
- 1 envelope hollandaise sauce mix
- 12 slices Canadian bacon, quartered
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 6 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1. Preheat oven to 375°. Flatten muffin halves with a rolling pin; press into greased muffin cups. Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
- 2. Meanwhile, prepare hollandaise sauce according to package directions; cool slightly. Sprinkle bacon with pepper. In a large skillet, cook bacon in oil over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. Divide bacon among muffin cups. Wipe skillet clean.
- 3. Whisk eggs and 1/2 cup cooled hollandaise sauce until blended. In the same skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture; cook and stir until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains. Divide egg mixture among muffin cups; top with remaining hollandaise sauce.
- 4. Bake until heated through, 8-10 minutes. Serve warm.
- 5. Overnight option: Refrigerate unbaked cups, covered, overnight. Bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes.
- 6. Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked cups in muffin cups until firm. Transfer to an airtight container; return to freezer. To use, bake cups in muffin tin as directed, increasing time to 25-30 minutes. Cover loosely with foil if needed to prevent overbrowning.

Jan 12, 2019Because we don't eat pork, I used sliced turkey pepperoni (4 slices per muffin) which did not have to be fried. I also lowered the baking temp to 350 due to an electric oven.
