This is the dish I made for our Easter breakfast at church this year. At first, I couldn't decide what to make, but then Pinterest helped me out! I get an email whenever someone repins one of my pins, and this recipe was constantly getting repinned, so I really wanted to try it out. Usually I like to chose "tried and true" recipes when cooking for church events, but I decided to take a chance with this one, and I'm glad I did. It was the perfect Easter brunch dish and it turned out beautifully. It's a Taste of Home recipe.
Eggs Benedict Casserole
10 oz. Canadian bacon, chopped
6 English muffins, split and cut into 1” pieces
2 cups 2% milk
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika, divided
1 tsp shallot salt
4 egg yolks
½ cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp Dijon mustard
½ cup butter, melted
Place half of the Canadian bacon in a greased 9x13” baking dish; top with English muffins and remaining bacon. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, onion powder, garlic powder, ½ tsp smoked paprika, and shallot salt; pour over the top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 375°. Sprinkle with remaining ½ tsp smoked paprika. Cover and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
In a double boiler or metal bowl over simmering water, constantly whisk the egg yolks, cream, lemon juice, and mustard until mixture reaches 160° or is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Reduce heat to low. Slowly drizzle in warm melted butter, whisking constantly. Serve immediately with casserole.
Makes 12 servings.
The only thing I changed was that I added a little bit more seasoning to the egg mixture, because some other reviewers said it was a tad bland. I really loved the Hollandaise sauce and will probably use it the next time I need Hollandaise sauce for another recipe. It was really easy to make.
The casserole was a hit at the Easter breakfast. One lady told me it was the best dish there. There was only enough leftover for me to have a little bit for breakfast the next morning. Sounds like a success to me!
