Egg McMuffin Casserole

Breakfast for dinner! Another Pillsbury.com find and the perfect vehicle for the half loaf of English Muffin Loaf in the freezer. Here is the recipe, which I tweaked by using reduced fat Colby-Jack cheese, deli ham slices, skim milk, ICBINB and the homemade bread. This would be great for holiday guests as it can sit overnight and just be baked fresh on a busy morning. It makes 8 servings at under 350 calories.

We will probably have steamed vegetables with this. And I will post a photo and review after dinner. For lunch I had Enchilada Soup (no chips or cheese) and spinach mixed in.

This was so good. I think the bread had a bit to do with how delicate it was, but the flavor was great and I wouldn’t change a thing.

So now you know why I made an English Muffin Loaf this morning. After the Alioli mess, you might have thought I would be shy of emulsions. But you would be wrong. I make mayonnaise with no problems ever. So, when I saw this recipe for Hollandaise Sauce, I whipped out the Magic Bullet high-speed blender, threw all the ingredients in and a few seconds later, I had sauce. I used 2 powdered eggs (with required water) instead of 3 egg yolks, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, no hot sauce, and 1/4 cupĀ  canola oil instead of heated butter. It looks and tastes marvelous.

I love breakfast for dinner. I am using ham instead of Canadian bacon and am poaching the eggs in this toaster (I love this thing). I will post a photo after dinner.

Really delicious dinner. I would add more lemon juice to the Hollandaise Sauce, both to thin it and flavor it.
