Eggs Benedict Casserole is an easy twist on a classic eggs benedict recipe and great to feed a crowd!

English muffins and back bacon are soaked in a seasoned egg mixture overnight and baked in the morning! Drizzle with an easy hollandaise sauce (homemade or packaged) and top with extra poached eggs if you’d like.

If you’re looking to switch up your usual breakfast casserole, you’ll love this version!

A Fave Egg Brunch Casserole

Instead of individual servings of Eggs Benedict, this casserole version takes all the savory flavors of this breakfast stable and serves it up casserole style. Pop it into the fridge for a few hours (or overnight) and then bake! Drizzle with hollandaise (and add extra poached eggs if you’d like) for the perfect holiday meal!

Why A Casserole?

To be honest, a traditional eggs benny seems intimidating but isn’t hard to make. We do love this casserole because…

  • All of the prep is done the day before
  • it bakes while I spend time with family or enjoying the holiday
  • there is only one pan to wash after breakfast (since all of the prep is done ahead)
  • I love strata style casseroles

Eggs Benedict Casserole Ingredients


CASSEROLE The base of this casserole is English muffins and Canadian bacon (aka back bacon). If you have leftover ham, you can use that in place of Canadian bacon.

EGG MIXTURE Just like most overnight casseroles, this recipe uses a seasoned mixture of eggs and milk. Stir in some seasonings, extra garlic powder, and even a pinch of cayenne pepper or dijon mustard if you’d like!

HOLLANDAISE SAUCE Eggs Benedict needs Hollandaise sauce (which is a mixture of egg yolks, vinegar or lemon juice, and lots of melted butter)! Making a blender hollandaise sauce is just as quick as a package mix and it turns out great. If you’d prefer, a packaged mix works well too (I promise the blender version is just as easy).


Add some fresh spinach, diced broccoli, and even diced bell peppers!

Optional Extra Eggs: While it’s optional, you can make additional poached eggs to top the casserole (and they can also be done ahead of time) or even a batch of oven poached eggs.

steps for making Eggs Benedict Casserole

How to Make Eggs Benedict Casserole

This is an overnight eggs benedict casserole. Prepare and cover with plastic wrap before refrigerating overnight, this ensures the English muffins soak up all of the egg mixture.

  1. Place English muffins, Canadian bacon & green onions in a baking dish (per recipe below).
  2. Whisk up a quick custard mixture with eggs, milk, and seasonings. Pour over the casserole and chill for 4 hours (or overnight).
  3. Bake casserole per recipe instructions, removing foil for last ½ hour.
  4. While the casserole is baking, prepare Hollandaise sauce. Serve baked casserole with Hollandaise sauce, & garnish with green onions or fresh chives, if desired.

Can You Make Ahead?

This casserole is perfect for making ahead! The baked English muffin cubes soak up the savory egg batter while it chills in the refrigerator, freeing up your time and energy for other prep—or maybe just sleeping in? Serve alongside some Rainbow Fruit Kabobs with Fruit Dip for a really special brunch. Why not have a pitcher of Raspberry Mimosas & Mocktails for both adults and kids?

Can you Freeze?

  • If you plan to freeze this casserole bake as directed and cool completely. Cut into squares and freeze in individual portions.
  • Do not freeze the casserole with Hollandaise sauce as it will become grainy once it thaws.

  1. Is 1/4 teaspoon of cornmeal correct. That doesn’t seem like it would be enough to sprinkle over anything?
