How To Make It

The full recipe & ingredients list are below, but here you’ll find a quick overview for making this recipe perfectly, along with useful tips and info!

Place half of the Canadian bacon in a greased baking dish. Top it with the chopped English muffins and the rest of the bacon.

Whisk eight eggs, the milk, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder in a large bowl and then pour over the English muffins. Cover the baking dish and chill in the fridge overnight.

When you’re ready to cook the next morning, remove the casserole from the fridge and bake.

Make little wells in the casserole and crack the eggs into them, then sprinkle with some paprika. Bake again until the egg whites are set, but the yolks are still completely soft.

Instructions for eggs benedict casserole

To make the hollandaise, cut the butter into four pieces and microwave until almost melted. Stir until it melts completely.

Separate the eggs and place the yolks in a small bowl. (You can just store the egg whites until you need them for something else!) Beat the yolks well and then add to the butter and stir.

Add the cream and some of the lemon juice to the egg mixture and stir. Microwave it until it’s just slightly thick. Stop about every 20 seconds to stir. Once it’s thickened, remove the sauce from the microwave and stir in extra lemon juice if you’d like.

Drizzle the hollandaise sauce over the Eggs Benedict casserole and serve!

Chef’s Tips

  • Make sure not to overcook the eggs on top! You want the yolks to be nice and runny. Also, make sure not to over-microwave the hollandaise.
  • When you’re pouring the egg mixture over the English muffins, make sure they are completely covered. If they’re not, rearrange them a little and remove a couple of pieces if necessary.
  • I used a small bowl to make the wells in the casserole to crack the eggs into, but you could use a large spoon, measuring cup, or even the bottom of a glass.
  • This Eggs Benedict casserole is easy to make vegetarian by leaving out the Canadian bacon. You can also add in veggies, such as mushrooms, asparagus, or green onions!

  1. When do you add the garlic powder and the salt? I assume chives are sprinkled on top right before baking? The recipe above only says to add the onion powder to the egg milk combo but doesnt mention the other ingredients listed in the casserole section of the recipe

  2. You don’t have mustard listed in the ingredient list, but talk about adding it to the hollendaise sauce- how much and what type?? Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much for pointing that out! We had mustard in an earlier trial of the recipe 🙂 You can include 1/2 tsp of dijon mustard in the hollandaise sauce but we prefer it without. The recipe has been updated!5 stars
