Even if you’re not a morning person, you’ll want to “wakey and bakey” this Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict Casserole. When you don’t have the time in the morning, make it the night before and bake when you’re ready. Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict gets everybody up and at ‘em in the A.M.

When going out to brunch, my go-to meal is always a version of this dish. It feels like a treat to order it at a restaurant, but now you don’t have to eat out to enjoy this savory meal. I put a casserole-style spin on the traditional benedict so that you can make it ahead and bake it the next morning or bake it at night for breakfast-for-dinner.

Verlasso smoked salmon is my favorite! It’s sustainably farmed, or as I like to say, “farm to table,” with a taste that rivals no other. Around the holidays, we all like to indulge, so why not treat yourself to the good stuff.

If you’re not into fish and don’t eat meat, you can still enjoy this breakfast treat. I have shared a meatless option that is so good and perfect for breakfast or brunch.

Traditions coveted around the holidays, so I used butter from America’s oldest family-owned creamery: Minerva Dairy. This creamery makes some of the best butter I’ve ever tasted. It’s creamy and light and their garlic and herb variety creates a delightful balance of flavor in this dish.

To stick with tradition (somewhat), I drizzled hollandaise sauce over the top of the casserole just before serving. Making your own hollandaise sauce is actually very simple, but if you want to skip that step, Heinen’s offers a very delicious alternatives. I used two packets of Melissa’s Famous Hollandaise Sauce, which you can typically find in Heinen’s Produce Department.

Even though my version of eggs benedict is anything but traditional, it still tastes just like the creamy poached egg and buttery English muffin classic we know and love.

Well hello there, I’m Lauren and I love food! Keeping meals simple, satisfying and accessible to all is the main purpose behind my cooking, but I always add a touch of creativity and uniqueness.I’m a family-taught cook and food is one of my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a fur-mama to two wonderful rescue pups, Herbie and Nelly and our cat Grayson, who are all part of The Bite Size Pantry household. They love to be with me in the kitchen and they make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but I just love food and I really love sharing that love with others who love it too.
