Homemade Egg McMuffins are one of my favorite breakfasts! 

I try to avoid spending extra money and eating out, even if it's just a few dollars. The egg mcmuffins are fast and easy to make at home and everyone just loves them!

They're great for dinner too, especially if you're a breakfast for dinner kind of person like me. I love breakfast any time of day and since they're so simple to make, they make a great dinner on those busy weeknights when there's alot going on. 

I was super excited when I saw this recipe idea floating around on Pinterest.

An English Muffin Breakfast Casserole?? Yes, please!!

This casserole turned out wonderful!! I'm a total sweet and savory junkie, so I ate mine drizzled with maple syrup. You could totally skip the syrup if it's not your thing.

This casserole is the perfect breakfast recipe for a big family, potluck, brunch or holiday since it feeds up to 8 people. If there are only a few of you, just cut the recipe in half and bake in a smaller baking dish.

Make this recipe your own by switching up the English muffins, cheese or meat. You can make it the same or different every time, but any way you make it, it's sure to disappear fast at the table.

What is in Egg McMuffin Breakfast Casserole?


  • Milk: Cow's milk is a great source of calcium, vitamin D, potassium and it's a complete protein source too!
  • English Muffins: Also known as breakfast muffins they first originated in the United Kingdom. They're usually sliced horizontally, toasted and buttered. My favorite brand is Bay's! You can find them in the dairy or refrigerated section of your grocery store. 
  • Canadian Bacon: Very similar to ham and also called back bacon. It can include pork loin and pork belly and is cured and smoked.

    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!

  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.

  23. Sheena,
    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,
    Michelle
