Eggs Benedict Casserole: A Delicious Overnight Option

Hey there, breakfast lovers! This recipe is for all of you who crave a delicious and hassle-free morning meal. Introducing the Eggs Benedict Casserole – a flavor explosion packed into a casserole dish!

Why I love overnight breakfasts:

Let’s be honest, mornings can be rough. This casserole is a lifesaver for those days when you just want to grab a delicious breakfast without spending hours in the kitchen. Prep everything the night before, and wake up to a ready-made masterpiece!

Beyond easy and incredibly tasty:

This casserole isn’t just convenient, it’s unbelievably good. Layers of savory Canadian bacon (or ham!) and fluffy English muffins are baked in a creamy egg mixture, creating a quiche-like texture. But the real star is the hollandaise sauce – a zesty, mouthwatering drizzle that takes this casserole over the top. Every bite is a delightful balance of creamy, savory, and tangy flavors.

The magic ingredients:

Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this recipe. The combination of these everyday ingredients creates a breakfast masterpiece:

  • Canadian Bacon (or ham): Tender and flavorful, this is the base of our savory goodness.
  • English Muffins: These fluffy muffins become the foundation of the casserole, soaking up all the delicious flavors.
  • Eggs: They bind everything together and create a custardy texture.
  • Heavy Cream (or half & half): Adds a luxurious creaminess to every bite.
  • Salt and Pepper: Season to taste!

Hollandaise Sauce – the creamy crown jewel:

This sauce is what truly elevates the casserole. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Egg Yolks: They team up with the butter to create a rich and velvety sauce.
  • Heavy Cream: Thickens and smooths out the sauce for a perfect consistency.
  • Lemon Juice: Freshly squeezed is best for that bright, citrusy flavor. Bottled juice works in a pinch.
  • Dijon Mustard: A secret ingredient for that classic hollandaise tang.
  • Butter: Melted butter adds richness and ties everything together.

Assembling your masterpiece:

This casserole is all about layering. Here’s how to create your breakfast magic:

  1. Prep the pan: Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. Layer it up: Start with half the Canadian bacon, then add the chopped English muffins, and finish with the remaining bacon.
  3. Whisk the wet stuff: In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour this mixture over the layered ingredients in the pan.
  4. Overnight chill: Cover the dish and refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor infusion.

Baking to perfection:

  1. Preheat the oven: Get your oven nice and hot at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Bake it covered: Bake the casserole for 35 minutes covered with foil.
  3. Uncover and continue: Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean (a few crumbs are okay, but no wet batter).

Hollandaise magic:

While the casserole bakes, whip up the hollandaise sauce. Here’s the trick:

  • Whisk it all together: In a double boiler (or a metal bowl over simmering water), whisk egg yolks, cream, lemon juice, and mustard until well combined. Keep whisking constantly as the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Butter me up: Reduce heat to low and slowly whisk in melted butter until fully incorporated.

The grand finale:

Drizzle the warm hollandaise sauce over your beautiful casserole. Garnish with chopped parsley for a pop of color (optional), and serve immediately. Enjoy your delicious and effortless breakfast!
