I received compensation, either monetary or in product, in exchange for this review. All opinions about this amazing product are 100% completely my own. When my sister and I were younger, we always looked forward to Mother’s Day. We would always get so excited to spoil mom on her special day. Of course at school, we made the obligatory macaroni necklace or hand print something or another and hide it away. On Sunday morning, we would rush into the kitchen and help my dad make mom’s favorite dish, Eggs Benedict. We would giggle as we ran up the stairs, ahead of dad, to unveil our masterpieces of artwork. Once she opened her cards and her gifts, dad would bring her a cup of coffee and a plate of the Eggs Benedict. I lost mom a year ago, so this Mother’s Day will be a little hard for me. In honor of mom, I thought it would be fun to make an updated version of her favorite dish this year, my Overnight Eggs Benedict Casserole Recipe.
I enjoy making this recipe because it is much less labor intensive than my dad’s, but still has plenty of great flavor. By soaking the Canadian bacon and English muffins overnight, you soften them up, giving it that casserole texture. It only takes about 5 minutes to get it all put together before you slide it into the fridge for the night. The next morning, you just place it in the oven and let it work it’s magic! This is the perfect dish to serve mom or dad in bed on Mother’s or Father’s day, for brunch or a late lazy Sunday breakfast.
