Egg Casserole Ingredients
Casserole: This is made with layers of English muffins and chopped Canadian bacon, then drenched in an egg mixture made with eggs (of course!), milk, and spices.
The mixture soaks into the English muffins, and after it’s cooked, each bite is tender and full of spiced and smokey flavor!
Hollandaise Sauce: A combination of egg yolks, lemon juice, melted butter, ground mustard, and other spices make up this classic sauce.
The last step in this recipe is drizzling it over each piece of the casserole before serving.
How To Make Eggs Benedict Casserole:
- Combine the eggs, milk, and spices together in a large mixing bowl or measuring cup.
- Chop the English muffins and Canadian bacon into pieces and spread out in a casserole dish.
- Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and bread and bake.
- Add egg yolks, lemon juice, and seasonings to a glass.
- Use an immersion blender to mix the Hollandaise sauce ingredients while slowly pouring in the hot melted butter.
- Pour the sauce over the baked casserole before serving.
How Did Eggs Benedict Get Its Name?
Like with many classic recipes, no one is entirely sure! One story says it was first made in the 1860s, at Delmonico’s Restaurant in Manhattan. That’s when a bored patron named Mrs. LeGrand Benedict asked the chef to whip up something different.
Another theory takes place a little later in the 1890s. Supposedly, a man named Lemuel Benedict, who was hungover and looking for breakfast at the Waldorf, requested similar components to the dish. It soon became a menu staple!
Can You Make It Ahead Of Time?
Yes! You can assemble it in a casserole dish and put it in the refrigerator overnight. When it’s time to bake add a few additional minutes. However, the hollandaise sauce should be made fresh.
Is Eggs Benedict Healthy?
It really depends on your definition of “healthy”! Traditional Eggs Benedict is very rich and often made with cream and tons of egg yolks.
This casserole is healthier in some ways because it’s made with milk, instead. It also has lots of protein and very little sugar, as opposed to sweeter breakfast recipes.
