A delicious eggs benedict quiche with easy blender hollandaise sauce is a great way to prepare an eggs benedict brunch for a crowd without all the work of poaching eggs! It’s perfect for a holiday breakfast or brunch.
Preheat oven to 350° F. Roll unbaked pie crust to a 9″ pie dish.
Cut Canadian bacon into small squares. Chop chives or green onions. Spread evenly over the bottom of the pie crust.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and mustard powder. Pour over the onions and Canadian bacon in the pie dish.
Bake for 35-45 minutes (55-65 minutes for a deep dish) or until the eggs are set. The filling should slightly jiggle like jello when it’s done.
Remove from oven and cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting into slices. Serve with blender hollandaise.
To prepare the hollandaise sauce:
Add egg yolks, lemon juice, dijon, and cayenne to a blender. Close lid and blend until smooth.
Heat butter in a microwave-safe dish until melted, about 30-60 seconds.
While butter is hot, pour into egg yolk mixture in a thin stream while blending. Sauce should thicken quickly.
Serve over warm quiche.
Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator.
Bake at a low temperature to let the custard set all the way without the proteins coagulating too much (which causes a tough, spongy quiche). I bake it at 350°F for about an hour for a deep dish quiche. A traditional pie plate will not take quite as long.
The quiche should jiggle slightly, like jello, when it’s ready to be pulled from the oven.
Make the hollandaise sauce just before serving so that it’s still warm when serving.
If the hollandaise gets too thick, whisk in just a touch of warm water before serving.
If you prefer to parbake your crust:
Place a piece of parchment over the unbaked crust.
Fill with weights (or something fairly heavy, such as dry beans) and bake 10-15 minutes at 425°F.
Remove the weights and parchment, brush with a beaten egg, and place back in the oven for 1 minute.
Let the crust cool completely before adding the quiche filling.
