I loved the concept, but please make your own hollandaise. I've never tried the powdered mix, and whipped it up and it was not good to me--I couldn't bear pouring it over my hard work! Use 'Blender Hollandaise' from this site and you'll get much better results and taste. The casserole was okay, I guess I just like a lot more 'stuff' in my egg casseroles. Maybe some hot pepper sauce in the egg mixture along with some kind of cheese. I love regular eggs Benedict, and the right hollandaise makes this recipe.Read More

Delicious. I used egg beaters, skim milk, 100 calorie english muffins and used butter buds instead of margarine. It puffed up nicely and tasted great
This recipe is very easy and good. I had ham instead of canadian bacon, cut to 1/2 inch dice. I think I would use regular onion next time, the green onion was a little over powering for my taste.
I have made the recipe many times for very large groups of people. Everyone always loves it. The only thing I changes was the layering. I did layer of all the english muffins, all the Canadian bacon then poured custard mixture over. This recipe also freezes (after baked) and reheats well.
had overnight guests and they loved it! We have learned that we detest all packaged hollandaise sauces EXCEPT Knorr Brand Hollandaise and we usually add a teaspoon or two of fresh lemon juice to it if we have lemons in the house. (I tried making hollandaise from scratch and actually PREFER the Knorr stuff. Crazy huh?) One thing we always include in our eggs benedict is steamed broccoli florets. Steamed the broccoli for about 5 minutes, sprinkled it with a little garlic salt and lemon pepper before adding to the casserole. Served that yummy sauce on the side. I must not have done a very good job with the cooking spray because I did have some trouble with sticking. So it isn't our beloved eggs benedict that we will always consider quite special but what it is we enjoyed very much and it freed me up to relax and visit with our guests! Tasty with hash browns, chilled canned pears and maybe even a bloody mary! YUM!
very good. I doubled recipe and cooked for Sunday School Teachers meeting. Had several come back for seconds.
Just served this for Christmas morning breakfast. The immediate comments were that it looked so beautiful. Someone said it looked like a picture out of a magazine. I made it exactly as stated in the recipe. I would not "ruin" it by adding cheese to it, as some reviewers have suggested. Let the hollandaise sauce shine thru, for something special and different. The ONLY suggestion I would make for improving it would be to make homemade hollandaise sauce---it is just that much better than the packaged variety and is not much more difficult than making the packaged kind (both you have to whisk it and watch it carefully on the stove as it thickens). So, the packaged variety doesn't really save you that much work.
5 stars for the idea alone (for anyone that loves eggs bene)! I added some diced potato/onion, used diced deli ham (always on hand), added garlic salt and shredded cheese blend before pouring on the eggs. Note that after adding the eggs....proportions didn't look right and I was worried I'd have a top-half crunchy casserole, but after baking, it was perfect. Then discovered....and couldn't believe....that my hollandaise sauce was gone! Had to whip up a country gravy...thereby ruining the benedict effect...but next time...hollandaise all around please! Good with the changes I had to make...good place to start with ANY of your breakfast-favorite add-ins. I'm sure it'll be even better with the right sauce!
Made this for Christmas breakfast buffet, and everyone enjoyed it as written. Then for Christmas breakfast at home, changed it up a bit. Used a pound of bacon, fried, and chopped in place of the Canadian bacon. Used 5 green onions, replaced onion powder and salt with 1-1/2 tsp of onion salt, and added fairly generous dashes of black pepper. When finishing, used real butter instead of margarine, and added 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of lemon juice to the hollandaise sauce before pouring it over the casserole. We liked it even better this way, and hash browns and orange juice made this complete. Another tip for leftovers - serve hollandaise sauce on the side so everyone can add the amount they want, and then put remainder in frig with main casserole leftovers. When reheating, heat separately, and both will seem fresher than if refrigerated and heated as one dish.
My family loved this recipe! I did not buy enough canadian bacon so I used left over deli ham. It would be good with any leftover ham! I also used 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt instead of the onion powder and salt. I also sprinkled shredded cheese over the top. It came out great and will be making it again!
Made this for Christmas morning. We loved it. I omitted the onion powder and increased the green onion(doubled it). I also just followed the directions on the back of our favorite packaged hollandaise sauce. This recipe went into my recipe box!
Huge, huge hit at our community breakfast. People raved and it was the first casserole to go.
Greatly exceeded expectations. While it can't compete with the real thing, it was a perfect addition to our Easter Brunch. Made homemade hollandaise which I recommend. I used smoked salmon instead of Canadian bacon, because I was also serving ham with the meal. This worked well.
This was tasty - but then again, just about anything is with hollandaise sauce. For those who expected this to be exactly like eggs benedict, what did you expect? It is a casserole! If you are expecting an easy, overnight breakfast casserole for a crowd, this will be just that. Much better than standing at the stove all morning poaching eggs! We served our sauce on the side. Enjoy!
Four stars because while the dish was very good, I made my own hollandaise. I'd rather set myself on fire than choke down hollandaise from a packet.
Made this twice huge hits both times. I think making real hollindaise is worth the time. Second time I fried up the diced Canadian bacon before assembling. The scallion adds a nice layer to the dish. Served this w Gilda's French toast bake with blueberries great combo for all.
Good recipe, except you cannot reduce the recipe for one or two people because of the number of large eggs.
We didn't love it; it was mediocre. It mostly tasted like English muffin and hollandaise sauce.
AWESOME!! So easy to throw together and we all really enjoyed it. As per another reviewer, I made my own Hollandaise using the "Blender Hollandaise" recipe on this site, which was excellent. Will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks!!
I was really hopeful about this recipe because we adore Eggs Benedict..and for a crowd, the idea of a casserole sounded sublime. It was super easy to prepare this casserole, which is a huge plus. It certainly tasted fine....just not like traditional Eggs Benedict. Not bad...just not quite the same.
Made according to the recipe. Next time I think I would add a hint of dry mustard to the egg mixture, for just a bit of zip. Good company casserole.
Made this for the first time Christmas morning and it got rave reviews from my guests. With apologies to the original ‘author’, I made a few changes simply because I always adapt a basic recipe to our taste. First, I cubed the muffins and spread them on a baking sheet to air dry the day before. I used whole milk, real butter (a holiday splurge) omitted the green onion but used onion powder and chives. Also added S&P, Colmans powdered mustard, and a dash of cayenne pepper. I did use pkg. Hollandaise, but again used real butter, and seasoned with a dash of cayenne and the juice from 1/2 lemon. It was delicious! Served with hash browns and fresh fruit salad, and, of course, Bloody Marys!
04-02-16 ~ Great recipe to use up extra English muffins. I had everything on hand and made it up the night before and popped it in the oven the following morning. I made 'Quick & Easy Hollandaise Sauce in the Microwave' to go on the top. Great casserole, and this recipe will come in handy at the lake, this summer.
I love this casserole!! It is so easy and delicious. We love eggs Benedict and this recipe makes it easy to serve a large crowd. I follow the recipe exactly expect I toast my English muffins before cutting them up. I also just assemble the whole thing and put it in the oven right away. This way the bread isn’t as “mushy”. It turns out fantastic and as another reviewer posted Knorr hollandaise sauce is the BEST, we have been using it for years. I think it is better than homemade. Thank you for sharing!!
Easy and delicious. It has the classic Eggs Benedict flavors. I would suggest either homemade or Knorr’s Hollandaise sauce. I’ve made it same day and like it that way.
I didn't like the texture of this. Sounded great, but the English muffins were too soggy for my taste. My dogs loved it though. :-)
This was a nice quick meal.
This recipe is very good and very easy. I tried it as is and really enjoyed it. Then I did it again with one modification. Whether I make Hollandaise from scratch or a package, I add a little lemon juice. (Typically about 1/2 tsp for a relatively small batch.) It gives it just a little kick.
I made this for Christmas morning and it was divine. The eggs were fluffy and everything was perfect. The plus was it was easy. My husband said it was his new breakfast favorite.
Pretty good, extremely easy to make. but it wasn't as good as i hoped it would be...smelled amazing as it cooked.hubby said it was alright (after his third helping)
Yum! I had a LOT of extra ham so used that, I did use 2 deep foil pans so when I took it out, was not quite set. Put the pans back in the onen covered at 400 and it took another 15 min... basically would leave it in covered for 45 min if you use the foil pans (costco). Omitted the green onions, added fresh lemon juice to the hollandaise, and sprinked the smoked paprika on top... but fed the footbal crew and even the picky guys loved it...thanks!
It was very bland. I will definitely just make regular eggs benedict next time.
While this does not replace traditional Eggs Benedict it’s not bad when you want the basic flavors of EB but don’t want to go thru the effort of making it from scratch, especially when serving a group of people. There is definitely a place for this in my life. It is nice to be able to plop a casserole like this down on the table so you can enjoy eating with your guests instead of standing over the stove preparing each dish individually. By the time you sit down to eat everyone else is done. The first time I made it I followed the recipe as written, using Knorr package mix with fresh lemon juice added. MUST have fresh lemon juice in Hollandaise! Also used real butter, not margarine. It really was not bad. The Knorr mix is much better than I anticipated, actually rivaling many made from scratch hollandaise sauces I’ve had. The second time I made it I toasted the English muffins first and used thicker slices of a good baked ham cut into cubes which I sautéed in a little bit of butter for more flavor and made my own hollandaise and again, real butter. I also used chopped chives instead of green onions and seasoned the egg mixture with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. I made it the morning I served it which helped it not be so soggy, one of the things the Family didn’t like about it the first time I made it. It was even better. Truth be told tho, the difference in the hollandaise sauces was not that great and I would definitely use Knorrs again in a pinch. Overall a goo
I thought I used a good Hollandaise sauce (McCormick), but it was seriously lacking. Just another egg casserole dish; far removed from what would be considered Eggs Benedict as the eggs are not poached.
Delicious! Even my husband who never has Eggs Benedict said it was the best breakfast casserole I have ever made.
This a a great way to make Eggs Benedict for a crowd. I make it every Christmas, my family loves it!
We enjoyed this. It is a very rich dish.
We made this the night before, for Easter morning Brunch! DELISH!!! Ours cooked a little too brown on the bottom, my hint is to check it around 22-25 min, if it's pulling away from the sides and the top is crispy brown then it's done! We used Knorr packaged Hollandaise, it was a perfect!
You could always make mock hollandaise sauce if you didn't have a package... look it up online or here is a link... delicious. I'm going to make this Sunday for a gathering we are hosting. Sounds delicious.
This was disappointing. No flavor of English muffins and no piquant tang you usually get from the Hollandaise. Recommendations to make your own Hollandaise would certainly make it better but if I'm going to do that, I might as well make real Eggs Benedict. This was my first Allrecipes flop.
I used ham instead of bacon, added 2 more eggs & whisked with half & half. Instead of paprika I used a lot of fresh pepper. My guests all liked it. I will make this again. L. Wojick
I made a couple of changes... I only used 4 1/2 muffins ... Also I added 3/4 cup od shredded cheddar cheese before I poured the egg mixture... It was wonderful. I also made my own Hollaindaise sauce!
Very,very good. Served to my family who loved it
This was a huge hit Christmas morning! I did a little less English Muffin, and added some dijon and lemon to the hollandaise mix. Couldn't even tell it was from a package. We also used some delicious locally raised ham. Got several compliments it was the best breakfast casserole they've ever had!
outstanding. it has become a holiday staple for us
Made this for Christmas morning, scaled down to 2/3. It was nice being able to make it ahead and just pop it in the oven in the morning, but it wasn't amazingly good or anything, just ok. I don't think I'd go out of my way to make this again.
FYI: Classic (original) Hollandaise Sauce: 3 egg yokes (slightly beat with whisk) 1 stick butter 1/2 tea. lemon juice (or to taste) dash cayenne pepper use double boiler to warm butter to melting, NOT HOT. With whisk, SLOWLY add egg yolks & cayenne pepper, whisking constantly until thickened. (but still pourable) Take off heat & whisk in lemon juice. Ready to use. Not heart-healthy, but ooooooh so good. If for some reason your egg yolks curdle (usually do to heat being to hot)), keep on warm & wisk in hot water, 1 teaspoon at a time until smooth. (really, it works)
Everyone's loving it!
Really tasty, served on New Year Day with the Blender hollandaise Sauce. I liked how the top parts of the English muffins got crunchy. I made this about 5pm New Years Eve and threw in Fridge until about 11am NY Day.
Made it, came out excellent
Not bad. Made the recipe with ham instead of bacon, but otherwise made it exactly as written. Didn't really taste like eggs benedict, but it was still pretty good. Thanks for the recipe!
I put this in the comfort-food category because it seemed to release endorphins with each bite. It's definitely a make-again recipe.
I made this for a brunch that I had the in laws over for the first time. Fantastic! I did cut back a little on the green onion so i could garnish with some when it was done. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. The in laws even asked for the recipe,
Excellent ! Made for work potluck and everyone loved it! Bought the jarred Hollandaise so I could heat up at work!
Put this together on Christmas Eve for an easy breakfast in the morning. It was easy to put together and was delicious.
I made this for my family for a "breakfast for dinner" day. It was very yummy! Thanks!
I made this for breakfast Christmas morning. Served it with a large fruit salad and a cinnamon roll-type bread from a local specialty bakery. I think it will be a recipe I save for special occasions. Easter morning... :-)
Great recipe for breakfast New Year's Day. The only change I made was toasting the muffins. This is a keeper.
Deeeelicious! I used sourdough English muffins and it turned out perfect. I made this for my family for Christmas breakfast potluck and got a few requests for the recipe. They ate the whole thing! Definitely will be making this again.
Wonderful recipe and I make it in the morning which keeps it from getting soggy!
I made this for an annual girls weekend. Everyone loved it. So easy to make, I even bought a ready made Hollandaise sauce from Trader Joe's. Will absolutely make again and again.
This recipe turned out great and was well received! I made a double recipe for a large brunch and used prosciutto instead of the Canadian bacon in one. The prosciutto casserole turned out better with more flavor.
We had this on Christmas Morning. I didn't have Canadian Bacon, so I just used ham left over from a spiral cut honey ham. Everyone loved it; it's our new Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole.
My husband loved it. I though it was too soggy.
I made this recipe for Christmas breakfast 2013 after seeing it in the current AR magazine. This was a real hit! I would definitely make this again. I think I probably used a pound of Canadian bacon because I had 2 small packages in the freezer and used what I had on hand. I'm sure a fresh made Hollandaise would be better, but there was nothing wrong with the packaged mix I used and I'd definitely use it again. Super easy to prep when you have limited time on hand!
I've made this several times for large gatherings. Everyone always raves about how good it is! Make real hollandaise sauce from scratch, it's SOOO much better than the packaged kind. Also, I have found that using Canadian bacon, it kind of dries out and gets extra chewy. I like to use whole ham that I dice up. Last time I made it, I cut up asparagus and added it to the casserole. great recipe!!!
Beautiful Easter Brunch Meal! Added some shreaded Emmethaler cheese before adding the egg mixture.
We made this as is, and it was great. Used only 4 english muffins and McCormick Hollandaise sauce and it was fine. This is a keeper and one to revist often.
I might increase the ham and or the egg mixture next time just because it seemed more bready than necessary. We also doubled the sauce and that was a wise decision. It was really great!
Butter the pan instead of cooking spray. Use Knorr Hollandaise Sauce mix and make with butter. Sauce can be done in microwave, and add a few drops lemon juice to sauce.
Easy, and my whole family loves it. Christmas breakfast tradition. My boys are always asking if I'm making this!!
i found this recipe disappointing, very bland.
I definitely make this again
I made it exactly like the recipe said. My son suggested that it would be better if it had crispy bacon instead of the Canadian bacon. It would add more texture. .
I made this for a brunch. I am vegetarian, so I didn't try it, but everyone gave me rave reviews. I use the blender hollandaise recipe as well. I followed the recipe to the letter. It was very nice to be able to make this the night before and then just pop it in the oven.
Was good. A bit bland without some tweaks. Put a pinch of cayenne or pepper flakes, mustard if you like a kick in the egg mix. I also like to brown the ham for a fuller bodied flavor. For gal who called margarine hydrogenated...check labels. I use Becel olive oil margarine which is non-hydrogenated and for those of us concerned about out cholesterol I think it is an ok choice. I have tried all the packaged hollandaises available in my large grocery stores and my choice is International brand. I use less marg/butter, add a good squeeze of fresh lemon and a little hot sauce to taste. To make the sauce thinner and make up for cutting the fat, thin with hot water. My family loves it made this way.
I always make some sort of egg casserole for Christmas brunch. This was the first time my family asked for seconds. I think we found a new family favorite. Easy & yummy!
Earned rave reviews with this one! I love the fact that you make it a day ahead and then pop it in the oven in the morning. Will definitely make this again!
Made this for our Christmas brunch, along with another casserole recipe from this site. Really wasn't very impressed....tasted OK. I think if I would make it again, I would use several more eggs. It just didn't puff up like I would have liked.
I was reluctant because I usually like my eggs runny but I was VERY pleasantly surprised! This was delicious and I will definitely make it again. I cut up my leftover ham roast from the night before and it was incredible!
I have made this several times. One time I even served it for a dinner to a group of friends with a salad. Everyone raves about! I have made it with cubed ham and that was great. Also, I bought two packages of Knorr's hollandaise sauce mixes for anyone who wanted to add more. Next time I will make my own sauce as it's easy enough. PS... use butter!
This is just wonderful. I did not add the green onion,and I made my own hollandaise sauce from scratch. I served it with a tossed salad .
We loved it. I made it as written, since I think it is unfair to rate a recipe if you never even tried it as written. That being said, I made it on Christmas Eve afternoon and popped it in the oven Christmas day. It was so easy and a big hit. It was actually better after it cooled off and the eggs had a chance to rest with the Hollandaise. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for sharing!
This was delicious and I made it as stated in the recipe. I did used multi-grain light English muffins and I substituted yogurt for the butter in the hollandaise sauce mix. Served it at Christmas breakfast for the family gathering and it disappeared! That says it all right there.
I made this for Christmas brunch. I also used packaged hollandaise sauce. I had to leave mine in the oven a little longer than stated because it wasn't done in the middle but that could have been my oven too. Everyone said it was good and they are a lot of it but it seems that there was a lot left over. I will make this again if I'm going to a brunch with a lot of people. It has good flavor, it's easy to put tighter and easy clean up. Make sure you oil the pan very good before adding ingredients as it does Sri k to the pan.
I did not care for this recipe at all. Neither did my family. Going to be sticking to the real eggs benedict.
I did not have any milk left so I used half and half. I am sure whichever you use will taste great. Everyone at work loved it and asked for the reciepe. My husband said it was awesome and wish I had made more. It is so easy to make and good to make the night before or made right away. The only thing I forgot to do was to cover the first half hour in foil. Still tasted great!
Very easy to make the night before. I don't consume pork, so I used turkey bacon. Still worked well. Make your own Hollandaise sauce. They are a few easy ones on this site. It makes a difference.
Made it several times. I use black forest ham. Its great to make for bigger groups.
This is an amazing casserole. I followed the recipe with a few additions, but I believe even if I had followed the recipe exactly it would have been good. I made blender hollandaise from scratch and I toasted the English muffins first and then buttered them before cutting them. I believe toasting and buttering the muffins first added a new dimension of texture and flavor to the casserole.
My sister who "can't stand" Eggs Benedict liked this! Personally, I think this casserole is good but not exactly eggs bene in casserole form. I also used the blender holladaise recipe from this site instead of a mix
Very delicious and not terribly high in calories. Even when made as directed. I see others have made some other calorie saving improvements as well.
This was a hit at a breakfast themed dinner party, I received rave reviews from everyone. I did not use packet hollandaise sauce but made my own with 6 egg yolks, 1/2 C butter 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice and salt to taste, added a little milk to get a thinner consistency since it sat for 40 minutes before I used it.
I used 1/2 heavy cream and 1/2 whole milk. I added grated havarti or baby swiss cheese into egg mixture. Make sure you cooked Canada Bacons or use already cooked ham. I used Knorr hollandaise package. My family & friends love it.
I've also made it with homemade hollandaise and that's my favorite! But the packet kind is easy enough for my kids to make. In the morning - easy is sometimes best. Happy Brunches!
Super good and way easier than Eggs Benedict (although you can't replace eggs Benedict). This is a keeper for sure! Seems fancy and difficult when it is very easy! I only had half the amount of Canadian bacon it called for so I added some cooked regular bacon. I think it needs the Canadian bacon, for sure, but this was also good!
Loved it! Omg best and easiest casserole ever.BUT you must use blender hollandaise sauce recipe. Dont use the prepackaged mix. Freaked over that much milk versus eggs but kept it very moist. Will make again and either add chipotle and jalapeños or with asparagus.
This was delicious! I used diced ham instead of Canadian bacon, and followed another reviewer's advice to make the blender hollandaise sauce (also on this site) instead of using packaged. There was very little left over, which was just as good reheated the next morning. I will definitely make this again.
I made this Christmas morning ----- I used an extra egg and 1 less muffin- made knorr hollandaise w/ lemon -- great recipe for when company is visiting - takes long time to make eggs benedict for a crowd -- I will be making this again!
