Hot Eats and Cool Reads: Egg McMuffin Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Egg McMuffin Breakfast Casserole Recipe




Homemade Egg McMuffins are one of my favorite breakfasts! I sometimes make them for dinner too, since most of the time I'm too lazy to make them in the morning. I was super excited when I saw this idea floating around on Pinterest. An English Muffin Breakfast Casserole?? Yes, please!! It turned out wonderful!! I'm a total sweet and savory junkie, so I ate mine drizzled with maple syrup! This is the perfect breakfast recipe for a group and if there are only a few of you, just half the recipe! Enjoy!

Thanks to my sister, Shannon who blogs over at Speaking in Plain Shamish, for taking this photo!

Egg McMuffin Breakfast Casserole (print recipe)

What you need:
8 English muffins, split and cut into bite sized pieces
12 ounces Canadian bacon, cut into bite sized pieces
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
9 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
salt and pepper, as desired

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 glass baking dish. Layer the bottom of the baking dish with half of the English muffins, half the Canadian bacon, and half the cheese. Layer again with the remaining muffins, bacon and cheese.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour egg and milk mixture evenly over the casserole. Bake for 45 minutes. Serve drizzled with maple syrup.

    1. I think you could make this in a slow cooker. I'm not much of a slow cooker user, but I would maybe try on low for 3-4 hours, but check every hour to see how it's coming along. If you do try it this way, please let me know! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. This sounds so great! I love McDonald's Egg McMuffins. As a matter of fact, when I have to work super late (after midnight) I sometimes drop by there for an Egg McMuffin with sausage. I am definitely going to give the casserole a try right away! Thanks for sharing.

  13. This sounds great. With the english muffins, they probably don't get soggy like regular bread. I need to try this.

    We may have met by chance...but we become friends by choice.

  22. Made this recipe to the tee last week. We were disappointed. Needs much more flavor, like maybe some onion in it or something, which would definitely not be like an Egg McMuffin. It looked great, and was a great concept, but just wished it would've really tasted like an Egg McMuffin. Think I'll stick with the real thing.

    This looks so delicious! I love a good casserole especially a breakfast one so I'm not spending the majority of my Saturday in the kitchen! Your post got the most views from Tasty Creations Bi-weekly and you're being featured this week! Congrats! Hope to see you there.
    Hugs,
