Be still my enchilada loving heart! I think I have found the perfect meal and so easy!
With just a few ingredients you can whip up this incredibly delicious breakfast casserole fit for a crowd!
How to make Breakfast Enchiladas –
Start with your favorite sausage. We love chicken breakfast sausage for this recipe but a mild Italian pork sausage is great as well. If using pork, drain excess grease if necessary. Nobody likes a greasy enchilada first thing in the morning…or do they?
Saute your sausage, potato and pepper. We used our beloved Poblano pepper. A tick spicier than a bell but still family friendly.
Next, stuff your tortillas with your sausage mixture. Roll them up and into the pan.
What else can we stuff into these Breakfast Enchiladas?
- diced sweet potatoes
- sub ground beef or chicken for sausage
- kale – oops, just kidding
- diced ham and cheese – not kidding, yum, trying this next time!
- whatever meat or veggie ya got in your fridge can go into these enchies!
You have rolled up all of your delicious tortillas stuffed with sausage and potato and nestled them into your baking dish. Sounds so cozy….
This is where I love this recipe! Rather than filling scrambled eggs into the tortilla we are gonna pour the eggs right over the top!
Can I make this casserole ahead of time?
- You bet! However, rather than soak the tortillas in the egg overnight (because they get kinda mushy). We stuff and roll the tortillas, cover and put in the fridge, and simply mix the eggs up in the morning. Takes all of 90 seconds. You could even combine the eggs and cream in a separate dish the night before if breaking all those eggs is just to daunting in the A.M.
Cover, bake and serve these up with all your favorite enchilada fixings! Sour cream, avocado, and salsa!
Can I substitute corn tortillas for flour tortillas?
- You can but we don’t recommend it. They can get a little mushy while cooking in all that egg. If you don’t mind a less formed enchilada than go for it!
