This Easy Eggs Benedict Casserole is the perfect breakfast option for a special occasion or weekend brunch. An easy recipe anyone can make!
Eggs Benedict Bake
I think it’s fair to say that a great breakfast casserole is an excellent staple to keep up your sleeve for family breakfasts or special occasions. The problem is that we make the same things over and over – and eventually, they lose that oomph. This is where my Easy Eggs Benedict Casserole comes in!
A fantastic casserole recipe that is a simpler version of the traditional eggs benedict, this dish is the perfect brunch centerpiece when paired with some fresh fruit (or Fruit Pizza?), regular bacon, hash browns, or a light vegetable side dish (like my Crispy Asparagus Fries).
This delicious breakfast casserole takes a few shortcuts by cutting out the poached eggs and salty Canadian bacon and using an easy hollandaise sauce, but you still have all the flavors of eggs benedict.
Instead of having to make your own sauce with fresh lemon juice, heavy cream, and dijon mustard (among other ingredients), this one will take you only a few minutes to heat up and serve.
If you’ve baked this as a make-ahead casserole, it’s much easier to prepare this sauce while heating the breakfast bake instead of something from scratch.
This is the best eggs benedict casserole recipe to add to your table of brunch recipes as well. It’s perfect for Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Easter brunch, and Christmas morning breakfast – particularly if you have leftover holiday ham to use up the next morning.
- Add a few shakes of cayenne pepper to the raw eggs if you like a little kick.
- Top your Eggs Benedict Breakfast Bake with a few green onions or fresh chives to make it extra fancy looking!
How To Make Eggs Benedict Casserole Recipe
Easy Eggs Benedict Casserole Ingredients:
6 English muffins
1 1/2 cups milk
6 large eggs
1 1/2 cups diced ham
1 package McCormick Hollandaise Sauce Mix 1.25 oz
1/4 cup butter
1 cup cold water
Kosher salt & black pepper to taste
Dash of garlic salt
9 x 13-inch baking dish
Large mixing bowl
Large whisk or metal fork
Step 1: Set your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 x 13″ casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Step 2: Cut or rip your muffins into pieces and spread them out on the bottom of the baking dish.
Step 3: In a large bowl, whisk your half-dozen eggs and milk together. Pour the mixture over the English muffin pieces in the prepared baking dish.
Step 4: Season the eggs and chopped English muffins with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. A few dashes of each across the casserole is what you’re looking for. Stir the whole thing so that the seasonings disperse.
Step 5: On a cutting board, dice your ham and add it in an even layer over the top of the English muffins and egg mixture.
Step 6: Bake the casserole for 45 minutes or until your eggs are cooked through.
Step 7: While the casserole bakes, you’ll want to make your hollandaise sauce. Take out a saucepan and melt your butter.
Step 8: Add the cold water and the seasoning packet to your melted butter. Stir and then simmer over low heat until the sauce has thickened.
Step 9: When your casserole has fully cooked, slice it into individual servings.
Serve hot with a few spoonfuls of creamy hollandaise sauce poured over the top of each piece.
If people would prefer to spoon their own, place the sauce into a small bowl and pass it around the table.
How To Store Leftover Easy Eggs Benedict Casserole
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator under plastic wrap or aluminum foil for up to 3 days.
Do I Have To Use Whole Eggs In This Easy Eggs Benedict Recipe?
No! The classic eggs benedict recipe does contain a whole poached egg with runny yolks, so typically you’d use the whole egg in this recipe, but you don’t have to.
You can omit the egg yolks and only use egg whites in this easy casserole. If you do this, I would use a total of 8 egg whites for volume, but continue the recipe just as it is.
Can I Make This An Overnight Eggs Benedict Casserole?
Yes! You can absolutely make the Eggs Benedict Bake the day before you plan to serve it. The next day, take it out of the refrigerator and heat it in the oven while you prepare the hollandaise sauce. Easy peasy!
Can I Make This Entire Casserole Gluten-Free Or Vegetarian?
Want to make some dietary changes to this eggs benedict recipe? You can easily make it vegetarian by swapping the ham out for vegetarian ham or veggie crumbles.
You can also make it gluten-free by using a gluten-free English muffin instead of the traditional English muffin halves.
