  • 2 (6 ounce) packages uncured Canadian bacon, chopped
  • 1 (12 ounce) package whole-wheat English muffins, split and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 10 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups 2% reduced-fat milk, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons torn fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place half of the Canadian bacon in a lightly greased (with cooking spray) 13-x 9-inch baking dish. Top with English muffin pieces; top with remaining Canadian bacon. Whisk together 8 eggs, garlic powder, salt and 2 cups of the milk in a large bowl. Pour over Canadian bacon mixture in baking dish; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove casserole and let stand at room temperature while oven preheats. Remove plastic wrap and sprinkle casserole with paprika; bake in preheated oven until set, about 35 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
  3. While casserole bakes, melt butter in a small saucepan over low. Cook, swirling pan until butter turns light golden, 1 to 2 minutes; pour into a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Whisk together buttermilk, cornstarch and cayenne pepper in a heavy-bottomed, medium saucepan until smooth. Whisk in remaining 2 eggs and 1 cup milk. Cook over medium-low, whisking constantly, until mixture comes to a simmer; cook, whisking constantly, 15 seconds. Remove from heat, and whisk in lemon juice and reserved butter. Serve warm lemon-butter sauce with casserole.
