"I adore Eggs Benedict! But 1 thing that keeps me from making it more often than I do is I can't manage making it for more than 1 or 2 at a time when I really need it for 6 or more. Taste of Home gave me & everyone like me the solution. "Here's a casserole as tasty as Eggs Benedict, but w/o the hassle. Simply assemble the ingredients ahead & bake it the next morning for an elegant breakfast or brunch." (Sandie Heindel of Liberty, Mo) - Originally published as "Eggs Benedict Casserole" in COUNTRY WOMAN February/March Issue, 2010, Page 29. Time does not include chill time. Enjoy!"

Step 1

Place half of the Canadian bacon in a greased 3-qt or 13 x 9-in baking dish. Top w/English muffins & remaining bacon. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk & onion powder. Pour over top & refrigerate overnight, covered.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375F. Remove casserole from refrigerator while oven heats. Sprinkle top w/paprika. Bake for 35 min, covered. Uncover & bake 10-15 min longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Step 3

In top of a double boiler or a metal bowl over simmering water, whisk egg yolks, cream, lemon juice & mustard until blended. Cook until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon & temp reaches 160F, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to very low. Very slowly drizzle in warm melted butter, whisking constantly. Serve immediately w/casserole.

This casserole was easy to make and tasted great. It helped curb the craving for eggs benedict. Made in memory of Mary Pat. RIP.

Easy to make.....not eggs benedict since there is not the delicious yolk pouring over your muffin and canadian bacon. But a great breakfast or brunch casserole, and much easier than making eggs benedict for a group!!Enjoyed this as breakfast for dinner tonight. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag game.
