Ingredients for Easy Eggs Benedict Casserole

All of the ingredients in this casserole recipe are easy to find at the grocery store — and you might already have most of them.

Casserole:

  • English muffins – Toast the muffins before slicing into small pieces.
  • Canadian bacon – Make sure to slice the meat into uniform sized pieces so that it cooks evenly.
  • Large eggs – Use large sized eggs for this recipe to get the right ratio of eggs to the meat and bread.
  • Heavy cream – Cream helps to give this casserole its rich texture.
  • Whole milk – Whole milk also contributes to the richness of the casserole — we recommend sticking with full fat dairy for this recipe.
  • Onion powder – This helps make preparation easier but you can substitute diced onions if you prefer.
  • Paprika – This spice adds just a touch of peppery flavor and sweetness.
  • Sea salt – Sea salt elevates this easy casserole. 
  • Black pepper – You can grind it freshly or use pepper that’s already been ground.
  • Dried mustard – This ingredient adds a slightly tangy flavor.

Hollandaise Sauce:

  • Egg yolks – Be sure to use only the yolks. Save the whites for another recipe like a topping for meringue pie.
  • Dijon mustard – Dijon adds depth to this classic sauce.
  • Fresh lemon juice – Citrus imparts brightness in hollandaise.
  • Butter – Melt the butter in the microwave in intervals and allow it to cool slightly before using it to make the sauce.
  • Salt and pepper – Add the amount you like to the sauce.
  • Hot sauce – While optional, hot sauce gives the hollandaise a bit of a kick.

How to Make Eggs Benedict Casserole

This simple casserole that will feed the whole family is a quick alternative to traditional eggs Benedict.

  1. Arrange the sliced English muffin pieces and Canadian bacon in an even layer in a prepared baking dish (sprayed with cooking spray). 
  2. Using a whisk, beat the eggs. Add the cream, milk, and spices to the eggs and stir until completely combined.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish over top of the English muffins and Canadian bacon. 
  4. Cover the casserole dish and refrigerate.
  5. To bake, place the covered casserole dish in the preheated oven.
  6. Bake for the recommended amount of time before uncovering. 
  7. Continue to bake until the eggs are set in the center.
  8. Make the hollandaise sauce while the casserole bakes.
  9. Add yolks, mustard, and lemon juice to a blender and mix until completely combined. An immersion blender also works for this process. You can use arm strength and a whisk too!
  10. Continue to blend while adding melted butter in a steady stream through the top of the hole of the blender lid.
  11. Once thickened, keep the sauce warm in a water bath. 
  12. After removing the casserole from the oven, allow it to briefly cool. 
  13. When ready to serve, slice the casserole and spoon the sauce over top.

What to Serve with Eggs Benedict Casserole

Like any egg dish, there are lots of options for sides. We like to serve bacon-wrapped asparagus for a veggie on the side or air-fryer bacon for more meat. Air Fryer Breakfast Potatoes are another great pick!

You can also serve a colorful, fresh fruit salad, a simple green salad, or a fruit fluff salad.

Variations on Overnight Eggs Benedict Casserole

It’s easy to add so many different ingredients to an easy egg bake like this. 

  • Herbs – Add fresh thyme, parsley, or other herbs to the egg mixture or use them as garnish.
  • Spice – Try using crushed red pepper flakes or diced jalapenos to add some heat.
  • Vegetables – Diced bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, or baby spinach all work well with eggs. 
  • Garlic – Add finely minced garlic or garlic powder.
  • Meat – Instead of Canadian bacon try regular bacon or country ham.

Storage, Make Ahead and Freezing

Make-Ahead: You can make the sauce the day before and gently warm it before serving. Since the casserole requires refrigeration for several hours before baking, it’s a perfect make-ahead meal.

Refrigerator: Store the egg bake in its original baking dish covered in plastic wrap (or aluminum foil) or in an airtight container for 3-4 days. The sauce can be stored for 2-3 days.

Freezer: Freeze the egg casserole for up to 3 months in a freezer-safe container. We do not recommend freezing the sauce.

Questions and Reviews

  1. I’m wondering if you’ve ever made the Hollandaise and put it in a thermal coffee carafe to serve or held it in a small crockpot on low? I want to make this to take to a Bible Study, but don’t want the sauce to get cold in transport. Thank you!

    1. I haven’t, but as long as it isn’t too hot, there is no reason why it wouldn’t work!

  2. 5 stars
    This is another great recipe from Savory Experiments. I made it for brunch on Sunday and every morsel was consumed. Lots of “love its” from around the table. From fridge, to oven, to table, what’s not to love about a recipe that takes the stress out of last minute prep when guests are anticipating delicious food. It’s rich but not too rich, wonderful flavors, and Hollandaise Sauce is incredibly easy to make and is also very delicious. Recipe is definitely a keeper.

  3. What a great dish for a special brunch! Sooo much easier to make than the traditional dish. I know everyone at my house will love this. Can’t wait to give it a go!

  4. 5 stars
    This is fantastic! All the marvelous flavors of eggs benedict but easier to make and the whole family will enjoy. Looking forward to making this.

  6. 5 stars
