What ingredients are needed to make this Eggs Benedict casserole?
This breakfast casserole is seriously so delicious you won’t believe how easy it is to make.
Here’s everything you’ll need: bakery croissants, butter, eggs, deli ham, hollandaise sauce (egg yolks, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and butter) and dried or fresh chives for garnish.
SO good. SO easy!
This breakfast casserole feeds a crowd!
In my opinion, a casserole’s purpose is to serve a bunch of people easily. Right? So, this casserole recipe does just that. It will feed about 4-6 people.
You can double this also if you have a crowd. Just keep in mind, the thicker the casserole, the long it will take to cook. Just keep an eye on the top, and as soon as the eggs set in the middle, it’s done.

Variations of this Eggs Benedict Casserole
I tried to keep this casserole as close to the real deal as possible but I think there are ways you could venture off the beaten path and test out some new textures and flavors. Here are some ideas for mixing things up, using the same recipe, just make a few substitutions:
• Add sliced avocado on top of finished casserole, right before serving
• Top with fresh or dried chives
• Substitute English muffins with croissants, sour dough bread or hashbrowns (I actually prefer using croissants—YUM—it’s just bit outside the classic Eggs Benedict flavor but my family and I love the buttery taste of the croissants in this dish)
• Add garlic and/or onions
• Try bacon bits or Canadian bacon instead of ham
• Add cheese
You can make this ahead, refrigerate overnight.
This is an ideal casserole for overnight guests, weekends, for a brunch, or for Christmas morning breakfast! Or any holiday.
If you want to save time, you can make the casserole and the Holladaise sauce ahead of time and keep it in the fridge. In the morning, pop the casserole in the oven and zap the Hollandaise sauce in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds or until warm. You may need to give it a couple stirs.
What sizes casserole dish works best?
You can use either a square or rectangular casserole dish. A larger, rectangular dish will mean your baked casserole will not be as thick but it will cook faster. So adjust your cook time accordingly and keep an eye on things so it doesn’t get overdone.
