You’ll love this healthy twist on eggs benedict casserole! It has all of the traditional flavors (including eggs, Canadian bacon, and hollandaise!), but we’re skipping the English muffins and adding a bit more nutrition into this eggs benedict casserole recipe with a base of roasted cauliflower.
Need more savory brunch ideas? Try pairing this casserole with asparagus casserole, or try a frittata or omelette. Or if you need your savory brunch with a sweet side (it’s the best part of brunch in my opinion, you get to have both!), add some chaffles, keto cinnamon rolls, almond flour banana bread, or almond flour blueberry muffins.
What Is Eggs Benedict Casserole?
This baked eggs benedict casserole has all of the flavors of a classic eggs benedict – in casserole form! And, this version skips the English muffin and sneaks in some veggies for a healthy, low carb version.
Eggs Benedict Breakfast Casserole Ingredients
This healthy breakfast casserole is made with super simple ingredients:
- Olive oil
- Cauliflower – Look for a medium head without any bruising.
- Sea salt & black pepper
- Eggs – For the right ratio, use large size, not medium or jumbo.
- Canadian bacon – I prefer to look for an all-natural, sugar-free option.
- Cheddar cheese – Buy shredded cheese for convenience or shred your own.
- Hollandaise sauce – It only takes 3 minutes to make, see how to make hollandaise sauce here.
- Chives – Used as a garnish and mild flavor.
How To Make Eggs Benedict Casserole
- Roast cauliflower. Toss cauliflower with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast until golden brown.
- Whisk eggs. While cauliflower is cooking, whisk eggs in a bowl.
- Assemble. Arrange cauliflower at the bottom of a baking dish and pour eggs over top. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Top with Canadian bacon, then more cheese.
- Bake. Bake until cheese is melted and eggs are cooked through.
- Add topping. Let casserole cook, then drizzle with hollandaise sauce and sprinkle with chives.
Eggs Benedict Casserole FAQs
Is eggs benedict casserole keto?
Yes, because we’re using the cauliflower instead of english muffins, this is a naturally keto eggs benedict casserole.
Can you use regular bacon?
If you want to swap the Canadian bacon for regular bacon, you can. You’ll want to use cooked and chopped bacon. It won’t have the exact same flavor as a classic Benedict, but it will still taste great!
Can you make it without cauliflower?
Sure! The cauliflower provides a neutral-tasting bulk to the recipe, but you can swap it with any cooked vegetables you like. If you’re not low carb you can even put in diced boiled or pan-fried potatoes, or a healthier alternative would be diced rutabagas.
Can you make overnight eggs benedict casserole?
Yes, you can! Simply assemble the casserole and bake right before serving. If you can, make the 3-minute hollandaise sauce fresh, but my hollandaise sauce recipe post does have instructions for storing if you want to make it the day before.
Store leftover casserole in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Can you freeze eggs benedict casserole?
No, I do not recommend freezing the casserole, as it will change the texture of the eggs.
Reheat the casserole in a 350 degree F oven, or in the microwave, until just heated through.
