When it comes to breakfast items, I’ll take a good casserole any day of the week. My go-to is a hash brown casserole because you can bring in those veggies and cheeses that you love. Also, hot sauce or ketchup on top. Yum!

Like I’ve mentioned many times, a perfect breakfast to me is one I can just grab and go with, or that’s relatively simple to pack in the morning. Casseroles are perfect for this!

For National Eggs Benedict Day, I thought of the traditional. I also thought about making it a lobster eggs benedict or a steak option. After some thought, though, I wanted to be sure I was making something that multiple people could enjoy and a dish I could take to work for the next couple of days.

Simple, delicious, and easy to pack, this Eggs Benedict Casserole will be your go-to for weekday mornings. For all you traditional eggs benedict lovers, you won’t find hollandaise sauce here. Not only am I incredibly picky with mine, but I also only had enough eggs to make the casserole. Oops.
