One of the number one breakfast recipes of all time here on the blog is my Eggs Benedict Casserole. That hails back to my carbivour days and, although it is a delicious dish, it is full of carbs in the form of English muffins.

I assumed it was off the table and put it out of my mind.

Then I ran across Wholesome Yums keto English muffin recipe and sprinted to the kitchen to make them.

I was so excited to be able to make my favorite breakfast casserole again!

The keto muffins don't hold their shape like a traditional muffin, but that is OK because they mix with the eggs to give this casserole a nice hearty base, not just eggs and ham. It is a "stick to your ribs" quality as the Mr says.

This casserole had been a go-to holiday breakfast/brunch recipe in our house for a long time so it is nice to have it back again!

STEP 7
When you are ready to make the casserole, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

STEP 8
Take the casserole out of the fridge and allow it to warm up while the oven is preheating.

STEP 9
Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 50 minutes, or until the edges are bubbling and the top begins to brown. Check the middle with a knife to make sure the eggs have set. If it comes out clean the casserole is done. * See Cook's Notes

STEP 10
Remove from the oven and cover with foil while you make the hollandaise sauce.

STEP 11
In a blender, combine the egg yolks, salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice (you can add more when you taste at the end). Set aside.

STEP 12
In a small saucepan over medium-high, add the butter and heat until foaming.

STEP 13
Blend the egg yolk mixture at top speed for 2 seconds then, with the blender running, remove the cover and pour in the hot butter in a thin stream. By the time two-thirds of the butter has been added, the sauce will be a thick cream. Continue pouring, but don't pour in the milky residue at the bottom of the pan.

STEP 14
Taste and adjust seasonings

STEP 15.
Drizzle with the hollandaise sauce and sprinkle with the paprika and chopped chives.

STEP 16
Serve immediately

FAQS ABOUT LOW CARB EGGS BENEDICT CASSEROLE


Can I make the hollandaise sauce ahead of time? I would not recommend making the hollandaise sauce more than an hour ahead of time. Once you make the sauce, cover it and keep it warm. 

How long will this Low Carb Eggs Benedict Casserole keep in the fridge? Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Can I freeze this casserole? I do not recommend freezing as it will change the texture of the eggs.

Last thoughts about Low Carb Eggs Benedict Casserole


We have always made this as an overnight casserole. Mostly because it saves you time in the AM, especially if this is being made for Christmas morning. Momma ain't got time for cooking and doesn't want to dirty and clean the kitchen just to dirty it again for dinner....right?

But, if this is not for a holiday breakfast/brunch, you can just give it an hour or so of "chill" time either on the counter or in the fridge. That is enough time for the muffins and the eggs to get together and do what they do. 

Keep an eye on the casserole as it cooks, if it begins to brown too much you can cover it with foil for the remaining bake time. 

As I said before, this has become a holiday tradition in our house. I hope it will become one for you as well!
