All the goodness of Eggs Benedict without the fuss!
Toasted English muffins soaked in a milk and egg mixture, topped with tons of Canadian bacon and a cheater hollandaise sauce you will love!
How to make Eggs Benedict Casserole
Start by toasting your english muffins. We like to put them all on a large sheet pan and broil them until brown. Or you could put them in a toaster a couple at a time….have ya ever noticed how long it takes for english muffins to toast? Try the sheet pan method if you can!
Canadian Bacon vs. Ham – I like Canadian bacon best, but it can be pricey. Ham is a great substitute for this casserole. You can buy it already cut in cubes. If you use Canadian bacon, try to get the thickest cut you can.
Now whisk up your eggs and milk and pour over your toasted english muffins and canadian bacon.
How long does this Eggs Benedict Casserole have to sit before I can bake it?
- Anywhere from one hour to overnight. I have made this both ways and can not tell a difference. It’s up to you and your schedule. (p.s. this particular batch was soaked for only one hour…looks pretty good to me!).
So lets chat about the Hollandaise. I cheat. I usually get some smack talk about using this method but once they try it they become a believer…and you will too.
- We use a package mix. I know! I know! Don’t hate me…but it’s so good!
- Doll it up with a squeeze of fresh lemon and a couple tablespoons of cream cheese and it is lovely and delicious!
- It holds up for a long time in lieu of scratch made or blender hollandaise (Julia Childs rendition) which has to be kept warm and breaks down pretty fast.
- We love Knorr Brand. No compensation from them, just find their packaged sauce mixes much better.
Serve this delicious casserole along with a side of steamed asparagus and fresh fruit for a perfect easy on the cook brunch!
