  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat Bisquick™ mix, milk, 4 of the eggs, 3/4 teaspoon of the salt and the red pepper with whisk until blended. Stir in spinach, bell peppers and cheeses. Pour into baking dish.

    Bake uncovered 25 minutes. Spray bottom of metal 1/4 cup measuring cup or bottom of small (2-inch diameter) glass with cooking spray; carefully make 8 wells in partially baked mixture in baking dish. Crack an egg into each well. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake 12 to 16 minutes longer or just until yolks are set. Cool 5 minutes.

    Meanwhile, make hollandaise sauce as directed on package. Drizzle 1/2 cup of sauce over top of casserole. Top with tomato. Serve with remaining sauce.

Expert Tips

  • Don’t worry if some of the egg whites overflow their wells. In the end, everything will bake together beautifully and taste delicious.
  • For an extra-pretty presentation, drizzle the Hollandaise over the casserole with a spoon.
  • In the course of developing this recipe, we tried making it with frozen spinach. However, we found that thawing and squeezing dry frozen spinach added a cumbersome step. To keep this recipe impossibly easy, we opted for precleaned, fresh baby spinach, which wilts nicely, becoming silky in texture and ultra-concentrated in flavor. An additional benefit of using fresh spinach is that it’s easy to use any leftovers in a salad or sandwich.
