Breakfast is our favorite!! There are so many delicious recipes, and we love to enjoy them for dinner too. Yes, it’s true… we have breakfast for dinner once a week. It’s mostly because there are several simple recipes the kids love (French Toast, German Pancakes, Swedish Pancakes, etc.) that we don’t have time to make during the school week. Fortunately, we have Saturdays to actually make breakfast foods for breakfast (other than cereal). We also have holidays to do this for, and it’s tradition to make delicious breakfast casseroles and treats on special days, like Christmas.
With Christmas just a few days away, I wanted to make sure you got this recipe for Eggs Benedict Casserole. You see, I had never had Eggs Benedict until I was an adult, and now I’m in love with them!! They’re the food I always get if we have the luxury of going out for breakfast. When I saw this recipe from Taste of Home I knew I had to try it, and it was amazing!! I admit the kids weren’t huge fans of the Hollandaise Sauce, but it’s my favorite. If you are huge fan of Eggs Benedict like I am, then you must try this casserole. It’s simple and delicious!!
Here’s the recipe:
- 12 ounces Canadian Bacon, chopped
- 6 English muffins (cut into 1 inch pieces)
- 8 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- 4 egg yolks
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 TB lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ½ cup butter, melted
- Place half of the Canadian bacon in a greased 9x13 dish. Add English muffin pieces on top. Top with the rest of the bacon.
- In a medium bowl whisk eggs and milk. Mix well and pour over the top. Refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Sprinkle paprika on top of the casserole, cover and bake for 30-35 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10-15 minutes.
- In a small pot, whisk egg yolks, lemon juice and mustard on LOW heat until blended. Stir constantly and cook until it reaches 160 degrees or enough to coat a metal spoon. Slowly add butter, whisking constantly and until well combined. Serve immediately with casserole. ENJOY!
Recipe from Taste of Home.
You can find this near the Ham and Bacon section of the grocery store.
Layer half the ham on the bottom, top with the English muffins and then add the rest of the bacon.
This is the dish without the Hollandaise sauce. Of course, it’s amazing with the sauce, but the kids loved it without. 😉
