Eggs Benedict Casserole

Eggs Benedict is my weak-in-the-knees obsession whenever I go out for brunch at a restaurant. The crisp English muffin, smoky Canadian bacon, syrupy yolk, and creamy Hollandaise sauce is worth waking up for.

However, eggs Benedict is not famous for being the quickest thing to whip up at home (unless you’ve nailed down these perfect poached eggs that can be made in advance, which we make happen on the regular.)

We won’t raise a brow if you jump and shout in excitement over the discovery of this Eggs Benedict Casserole that can be prepared the night before. Nobody gets mad about delicious breakfast casseroles that can be pre-assembled.

Eggs Benedict Casserole is about to become one of your favorite plan-ahead dishes for brunch gatherings….even if the guest list is simply your hungry family. Bonus: never forget breakfast for dinner.

Breakfast Casserole with Eggs Benedict flavors

This Eggs Benedict casserole is loaded with all the classic Benedict flavors. Of course, you’ll note that the eggs here are fully cooked and therefore won’t be identical to the runny-egged original (for your eaters who crave gooey yolks, we highly recommend placing a poached egg on top of their portions – they can also be made in advance.)

Think of this breakfast casserole like a savory egg bake that includes the players of Eggs Benedict:  Canadian bacon, English muffins, eggs, and homemade Hollandaise sauce. 

About Canadian Bacon

Canadian bacon isn’t bacon as most of us know it. Rather, it’s a cut of bacon that includes lean pork loin and has very little fat. It’s typically cured, smoked, and sliced into thick medallions.

Canadian bacon gives this dish plenty of savory, smoky flavor without the fat. If you can’t source it from your grocery store, you can substitute with ham. Just slice it into thin, bite-size pieces to use in this recipe.

Creamy Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise sauce is a rich, creamy sauce with gravy-like consistency. It’s a popular choice for drizzling over eggs Benedict, poached eggs, or any breakfast bake that’s similar to this Bacon and Egg Breakfast Casserole.

The flavor profile:

  • Buttery, thanks to melted butter – nothing but real butter should be used.
  • Mildly tangy, from the juice of fresh lemons
  • Hint of kick, courtesy of Dijon mustard and fresh black pepper

Not all sauces include heavy cream, but it’s included in this recipe to help thin out the sauce while still keeping it creamy.

Tip: readers have suggested doubling the sauce, so you’ll have extra sauce to drizzle on top of individual slices when serving. We love this idea.

Author: Amy Dong

Ingredients  

  • 1 pound Canadian bacon, or ham - chopped
  • 6 English muffins, split and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 TB onion powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • fresh chopped parsley for garnish

For the Sauce:

  • 4 large egg yolks
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1-2 TB lemon juice
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • pinch of salt and pepper, plus more to taste

Instructions

  • Assemble the casserole: grease a 9x13 baking dish. Place half of the Canadian bacon in bottom of dish. Top with English muffins. Follow with remaining Canadian bacon. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, onion powder, kosher salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Pour evenly over top of casserole. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.
  • 30 minutes prior to baking, remove casserole from fridge and preheat oven to 375F. Sprinkle casserole evenly with paprika. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes on lower middle rack. Uncover and bake 10-15 minutes longer or until the center is done. Sprinkle with fresh parsley, if desired.
  • While casserole is baking, make the sauce: In a metal bowl set over a pot of simmering water (don't let bowl touch water) or a double broiler, constantly whisk together egg yolks, heavy cream, lemon juice, mustard, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Continue whisking until sauce is thick enough to coat back of spoon. Reduce heat to low. Drizzle in melted butter, whisking constantly. Add more salt/pepper if needed. Serve sauce immediately with casserole. (If sauce stands too long and gets too thick, add a bit of hot water,1 tsp as needed.)

Notes

Feel free to double the sauce and reserve half of it to serve on the side or on top of individually served slices. 
Because casserole contains fully cooked eggs, there won't be the runny egg yolks of regular eggs Benedict. If you'd like, serve a poached egg on top of casserole servings, for individuals who like runny yolks. Eggs can be poached in advance.

    Drooling!!! I’m always on the hunt for amazing breakfast foods. This is so perfect!!

      • chewoutloud

      Yes, breakfast is my fave!

    • Denise Wangerin

    Can this be made the night before?

      • chewoutloud

      Denise, the casserole and the hollandaise sauce can both be prepared (separately) the night before, but you’ll want to bake on the day of serving. I usually prepare the casserole completely, wrap airtight and chill overnight, and let it sit out at room temp at least 30 minutes while oven is preheating the next morning before baking it. Hope you guys love it! 🙂

        • Amber152018

        Hi! I want to make this for Easter Sunday but the 30 minutes to get to room temp is holding me up. Would it be okay to sit out for an hour? Or would that be too long? I’m looking to take it out before church and then bake it when we get back.

          • chewoutloud

          Amber, that should be perfectly fine 🙂 Hope you all love it!

    • Tina Browning

    Can not wait to give this recipe a try. I have 3 sisters. We having a weekend outing every year before Christmas.Each year the sister that plans the outing has a bunch before we take off for our sisters get away weekend. We have been doing this for 35 years!!!!! So we try to come up with different casserole each year. Since this year I have to plan the whole weekend, this will for sure be on my menu. I love the idea of the heart kabobs, only I am using Christmas tree cookie cutter. And of course Mimosa’s.YUMMY!!!!!!! Can not wait for our yearly outing to come around.
    Thanks

      • chewoutloud

      Sounds like total fun, Tina!! Wish I had a sis 🙂 Enjoy and thanks for coming over today 🙂

    • wina

    hello! I would love to make this but i just wanna make it for 2 people. do you think cutting down those ingredients proportionally would screw it up? thanks!

      • chewoutloud

      I think you can definitely halve the ingredients with good results 🙂

    • Allison

    I hosted a fast paced wedding weekend, and needed something I could make ahead to serve my guest before leaving on Sunday morning. I’m known for making Eggs Benedict but did not have time on this occasion. So after a lot of searching, I came upon this recipe. It was so easy to prepare and my guest and grown children loved it. Everyone insisted that I make it this year for Christmas morning. I have a feeling it will become a new family tradition now.

    I made it exactly as posted. Thanks for a new, quick, easy, and delicious recipe. YUM!

      • chewoutloud

      Yay, Allison! Soo happy you all liked it so much 🙂 Thanks for dropping by to let me know, too!
