  • 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

  • Pinch of cayenne pepper

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


  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 degrees 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
