McMuffin Casserole


This is one of the best breakfast casseroles that we've made.  It has all the flavors of an Egg McMuffin in casserole form.  This casserole is assembled in minutes the night before and baked when you are ready.  I used Bays English Muffins - my favorite.  They are found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, near the milk.

Chicken Legs loved this.  He wanted me to contact McDonald's and get them to add it to their menu!  I agreed that this was great. I am not a fan of McMuffins, but I loved this casserole.  Chicken Legs added syrup to his second piece to make this a McGriddle Casserole.




McMuffin Casserole
serves 4
(Printable Recipe)

4 English muffins, split (Bays)
6 oz Canadian bacon
1 cup cheddar cheese
4 eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
salt
pepper

Grease an 8-inch square baking dish. Cube English muffins and chop Canadian bacon. Add half of the cubed English muffins in a single layer. Top with half of the Canadian bacon and 1/2 cup of the cheese. Layer the remaining English muffins and Canadian bacon and 1/2 cup more cheese.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until combined. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the casserole. Wrap the baking dish with plastic wrap and place refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 1 day.

 Bake at 325 degrees 45 to 50 minutes.

  18. I tried your recipe and this came close to the muffin I tasted from a catering company in Australia. It's unbelievably delicious, I can't believe I would be capable of doing it (with the help of your recipe of course). Thank you so much!

  19. This is looking so fine. It seems like an easy casserole to make and since I have bacon and ham on stock, I might as well try my cooking skills. Wish me luck!

  20. I've always wanted to learn how to cook or bake. I'm planning on enrolling my kids in music classes this summer, so I have spare time in my hands. I'd probably do some learning to do too. -Cadence

  22. I have yet to make any of your recipes I pin (which a good portion of my food board is!) but I love Egg McMuffins & am rarely up and out of the house in time to get them, so this will definitely have to be a recipe to try soon! I look forward to it; I only read good things about your recipes in comments- seems like they're all pretty good!
