Eggs Benedict Bake with Bearnaise Sauce

I've made this recipe for my family every Christmas morning for 10 years—it's a food tradition that we look forward to every year. Part of what makes this dish special is the croissants that make the egg bake extra light and fluffy. —Susan Triplett, Citrus Heights, California

    We really enjoyed this dish. I did make it using Hollandaise sauce as that’s what my family likes. Great overdish!

    Nice recipe, and I like Bearnaise Sauce as much as anyone, but why not make Hollandaise which would make it closer to a true Benedict?

    I made this for a camping weekend. It was wonderful! I was asked for the recipe. Leftovers were equally as good reheated the next day.
