Ingredients for Eggs Benedict Casserole
See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.
- English muffins – Split in half.
- Canadian Bacon – Chopped into bite-sized pieces.
- Butter – Softened. Unsalted is best, but salted butter can be used as long as you reduce the amount of extra salt included.
- Monterey Jack Cheese – Buy a block, and grate it yourself for the best flavor and texture. Pre-shredded varieties do not melt as well. Feel free to substitute another variety. For example, Gouda would be a delicious option.
- Large Eggs
- Heavy cream
- Whole milk – Full-fat milk is best, but you can use reduced-fat milk if preferred.
- Ground black pepper
- Garlic powder
- For the sauce – Combine egg yolks, cream, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, cayenne pepper, and melted butter.
- Instead of Canadian bacon, use regular bacon or ham.
- Use leftover homemade biscuits instead of store-bought English muffins.
- Use your favorite cheese to top this casserole.
- Add veggies to your egg casserole, such as spinach, onions, or mushrooms.
How to Make Egg Benedict Casserole
- Assemble the casserole: Start by greasing a casserole dish, and sprinkling half of the bacon evenly across the bottom. Add half of the toasted and chopped English muffin pieces on top. Repeat this with the rest of the bacon and English muffins. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top of the casserole.
- Make the egg mixture: Combine the eggs, cream, milk, and seasonings in a bowl, and pour it over the casserole evenly.
- Refrigerate overnight: Cover the casserole with aluminum foil, and store it in the fridge overnight.
- Bake the casserole: Bake the casserole with the foil still on for the first 35 minutes. Then, remove the foil, and continue to bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the eggs are set and the English muffins are golden brown.
- Make the sauce: While the casserole bakes, blend all of the ingredients, except the butter. Melt the butter in the microwave, and add it to the blender while it’s running at a slow speed. The sauce should become thick and smooth!
- Serve: Slice the baked casserole, and serve it on single serving plates. Drizzle the sauce over the top of each slice, and enjoy!
Pouring the melted butter slowly into the blender when making the sauce for this casserole is key to creating an emulsion with the egg mixture. If you work too quickly, the ingredients won’t blend together.
How to Store Eggs Benedict Casserole
Store any leftovers wrapped in the baking pan, or transfer them to an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to eat, warm leftovers in an oven heated to 350ºF or in the microwave just until warmed through.
This eggs benedict casserole can also be frozen for up to 2 months. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.
You can also garnish this breakfast casserole with some chopped parsley if you like.
I don’t recommend storing this uncooked casserole longer than overnight as the chopped English muffins can become overly soggy.
Eggs Benedict casserole combines classic Eggs Benedict ingredients in breakfast casserole form! It’s a delicious way to enjoy the classic flavors in an easy-to-make, comforting casserole.
A rubbery egg casserole is usually the result of excess moisture in the ingredients. If you are including greens like spinach, make sure that they are pre-cooked before adding them to the casserole. Frozen veggies must first be thawed and then patted dry. Bacon that has been fried in oil must not have excess oil drippings. Also, make sure not to use too many eggs. You want them to cover the English muffins, but the bread should not be drowning in liquid.
