I love quick and easy egg dishes…I don’t know about you, but I never have much time to make a fancy breakfast dish, hence (I love that word!) this is the perfect recipe! Try it for a family brunch, a potluck or a special weekend breakfast.

I’ve made this recipe for years and once people try it, it’s always a requested recipe! Sometimes people are a bit afraid of it, since the creamy, cheesy mixture can make the eggs appear gooey and unbaked, but, I assure you once your yolks are cooked, the whites are also done and you’ve got a cheesy, eggy, hammy square of deliciousness to serve alone or on top of a toasted english muffin.

Creamy, Cheesy, Egg-y, and so Canadian Bacon-y!

You can easily customize this recipe for the number of servings needed; I typically make 6 servings, but often double for a potluck or a large crowd using a 13×9 inch pan. 

6 simple ingredients!

Ingredients for Mock Eggs Benedict | www.thefreshcooky.com #mockeggsbenedict #eggdish #eggsbenedict

Start by spraying your pan with spray oil. Use a baking dish for 6 servings or a 9×13 pan for 12 (remember to double the ingredients if you are making for 12).

Layer Canadian bacon to pan, roughly spacing so you can put one egg on top of each slice. They will overlap some.

Add your shredded cheese and then make a small “nest” for each egg in the cheese.


At this point, the dish may be covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight  for faster morning prep, if desired.

Crack your eggs into the center of each little “nest”. I need age spot cream, or a filter! HA!cracking eggs for Mock Eggs Benedict | www.thefreshcooky.com #mockeggsbenedict #eggdish #eggsbenedict

Evenly pour your heavy cream over the eggs and cheese, aren’t these measuring cups so cute?

Sprinkle on a little sea salt and pepper.

Dash on a few sprinkles of smoked paprika (or regular) just before baking.

Bake at 425ºF for 10 minutes, remove from oven and grate on a little fresh parmesan cheese.

Return to oven and continue baking for 8-12 more minutes, until egg yolks are set. Center will still be jiggly, don’t worry it’s just the cream and cheese mixture, as long as your yolks are firm the whites will be as well.
