"This casserole tastes exactly like Eggs Benedict without the last-minute struggle. Just assemble the English muffins, Canadian bacon (or ham) and eggs like a strata and refrigerate it overnight, then all you have to do in the morning is microwave the Easy Microwave Hollandaise Sauce Easy Hollandaise Sauce to pour on top (I like to double the sauce recipe for this casserole, as it's so yummy!). Granted, the eggs are not poached, but the flavor is just as awesome. Serve Eggs Benedict Casserole with fresh strawberries, orange juice and coffee. Great for Mother's Day, or other morning feast. From the newspaper. Note: Be careful not to overcook. If using a glass dish, you may want to reduce the baking temp to 350 degrees F, or reduce the cook time slightly. Ovens vary."

"Made this for dinner, topped with your easy hollandaise sauce. I let it soak overnight. If I make it again, I won't let it soak as long or I will toast the muffins before assembling. They were a little soggy. A good eggs benedict alternative, but we'll probably stick to the real thing."
"This was a great make ahead breakfast and a change of pace from other breakfast casseroles. I didn't make the hollanaise sauce but used Knorr packaged mix for convenience. If you use the mix, add 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice."
"This was a hit, but I would make some changes to it. I used Knorr's hollandaise sauce and it was really easy. I would add salt, pepper, and a dash of maybe cayenne next time. I did not add cheese as others did. I toasted the muffins and they were just a tiny bit soft, so I would imagine had I not done that they would be really soggy. I made this and french toast casserole Christmas morning and the eggs benny was definitely the biggest hit!"
"This was very good; however in no way reminded me of Eggs Benedict."
"This is one of three casseroles I used for our Christmas Brunch this past year and everyone seemed to love it. I used electric food warmers to keep casseroles warm and an electric candle warmer with a tall creamer to keep the Hollandaise Sauce warm. This will definitely be on our next Chistmas Brunch."
"I made this recipe for Sunday School at church, and it was a big hit! I tried another user's version of Hollandaise, and that is an experience I won't try again... Next time I'll just use a pre-made mix, like the Knorr package. But this base casserole is excellent, even without the sauce! In fact, if you're a fan of southwestern flavors, loading up with salsa, jalapenos, etc would be a really yummy touch!"
"My husband LOVED this recipe. It's definately a do again. I admit I prefer poached eggs on my bennys but this is a VERY good alternative and quite easy to do. Next time I may experiment and try separating the eggs and adding the unbroken yolks on top in the last minute or so of cooking. Thanks so very much for sharing!"
"Easy to make and tastes very good. I used Knorr dry packets for the Hollandaise sauce - 4 packets total so there was extra on hand. Got a very good response at pitch-in : ) Directions are not that clear in terms of when to add the sauce (but it makes sense you just pour on top at the end). I would make this a staple dish to bring to a breakfast - it's a unique choice and nice break from the usual sausage and egg dish."
"Very easy and good. I halved this recipe because there was only my hubby and myself. I had enough for a second breakfast. I made it in the morning so it didn't soak over night and it only took 40 minutes total to bake. I made my sauce from a envelope mix. I woll be making this again and again. Thanks for sharing.

"Made this for Easter brunch and we all enjoyed it! I toasted the English muffins first but otherwise followed the directions exactly. It turned out a little dry, but that may have been because my oven runs hot. I'll definately make this again, but I'll reduce the oven temp a little!"
"Okay this was fantastic!! Great because my husband loves eggs benny, but I'm no good at eggs, so this was perfect, and the sauce was very easy to make! A few things though.....I toasted the english muffins first, very good, not soggy at all. I also think that the hollandaise was a bit too 'lemony'. Perhaps using vinegar instead might be better.....all in all very very good!! Oh, and I scaled the recipe down to 5 servings, in a smaller dish, and it worked perfectly. Enjoy!!"
"Took this to work today. Did not toast muffins but did sub 3 chopped green onions for onion powder. Everyone liked it!"
"I will never make this again, I followed the directions exactly but the bread was too soggy and mushy, not sure how so many people enjoy it, the hollandaise sauce was good but too lemony, this does not taste like eggs Benedict at all. Not worth the calories! No one else enjoyed this either because it was just too mushy. I'd rather stick to actual eggs Benedict ."
"This is, undoubtedly, the absolute best breakfast casserole I have ever eaten. The easy, day before, prep makes it even more desirable. I changed nothing but I did use Knorr mix with some lemon juice for my Hollandaise Sauce. Thank you BecR!"
"I made this in the morning....I cut up all the eng muff and threw them in the oven on hi broil to toast a bit. I layered like a traditional benny. I added 3 extra eggs mixture because when I put the 8 in it didn't look like enough (no soak time, didn't want dry ham). The canadian bacon was tender, but the eng muff melded into the egg...my husband couldn't believe there was eng muff in there! I also added a tsp of salt to the egg mixture, and put shredded cheddar cheese and chives on for the 15 min uncovered bake. I also used Knorr's hollandaise sauce. It was tasty and filling. My husband was surprised he liked it because he doesn't care much for ham, but my toddlers wouldn't touch it! HA Baked at 375 for 30 min covered, 15 min uncovered."
"Very, very good! I think it's a new Christmas Morning tradition!"
"This was very good. I cheated and used dry packaged hollandaise sauce. I toasted the english muffins before assembling. We had this for Christmas morning breakfast and opened gifts while it baked. Very yummy - will make again!"
"I made this for breakfast today and it was delicious! I used some of the hints that previous reviewers had mentioned and it came out perfect! My husband had 2 helpings and raved about how good it was; it will be a definite make again recipe in our house!"
"I love Eggs Benedict and this made it so much faster. Had it for Mother's Day brunch over the weekend. Everyone loved it. We will definitely be making this one again! I've already given the recipe out to friends."
"Eggcellent ... OK I couldn't refuse. Good, easy, tasty, simple. Served it with the hollandaise. I did add a little tarragon to the egg mix along with salt and pepper and I used sour dough muffins, I just had them, but I don't think that changed the recipe at all. I would of just used plain, but I had these on hand. Worked and tasted great!"
