Ingredients

For the casserole

  • 5 large eggs
  • 6 English muffins, split and cut into cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 tsp. salt & pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • pinch paprika & onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. softened butter (to grease the pan)
  • 6 oz. Canadian bacon, diced and divided

For the hollandaise

  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 15 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • chives for garnish

Instructions

  • Cut the English muffins into cubes and place in a medium-large bowl.
  • Whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy cream, salt, pepper nutmeg, paprika and onion powder and pour this custard over the English muffins. Let soak for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, grease an 8x8 inch glass baking dish with softened butter.
  • Sprinkle half of the Canadian bacon down into prepared pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Pour soaked English muffins into the pan, followed by the remaining Canadian bacon.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes with the foil on, and for 10-15 minutes with the foil off or until the casserole is set and the top has slightly browned.
  • Make the hollandaise right before serving: melt the butter in a saucepan on the stove on medium-low heat if it’s not already melted. Set aside.
  • Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, Dijon, salt and cayenne pepper to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, ~30 seconds.
  • With the blender running, very slowly pour in the melted butter in.
  • Pour the hollandaise overtop the casserole, pouring as much as desired (as you can see from the photos we like a like of hollandaise!) Garnish with chives, serve and enjoy!
