Breakfast Enchiladas For A Large Crew!

Have you ever had family, friends or special guests staying at your home and wondered how you would feed them all a hearty breakfast without having to slave over the stove when you needed to be entertaining and having fun?  Well, here is a great breakfast you can throw together the night before and then just pop into the oven while everyone is getting up and getting ready for the day.

Elizabeth and I made this on Christmas Eve this year and then popped it into the refrigerator and then continued on with our Christmas cooking for the next day.  When we got up the next morning I popped this dish into the oven and by the time we were done opening presents, this delicious and hearty casserole was ready to go.  It was heavenly!

Here is what you need to do:

In a large frying pan cook your Sausage and Onions until the Sausage is cooked through and the onions are translucent.  You can cut your sausage into bite sized pieces but since these are going to be wrapped in tortillas and people will just be biting into them, you don't really need to.  After these are cooked through set them aside to let them cool before moving on.

Chop your Green Onions and dump them into the . . .

2 Cups of Cheese.  Ok, I might have a little more than 2 cups of Cheese in here but I LOVE cheese!

and then

add the Sausage and Onions

 and mix it all well.

Spray the bottom and sides of your baking dish and then using a 1/3 measuring cup, scoop out the Sausage, Onions and Cheese onto a Tortilla.

Roll the Tortillas up and place them seam side down in a 9 X 13 inch casserole dish.

As you add them to the dish they will fill the whole dish.

You may need to smoosh them together a little bit to get them to fit in the dish.  As these cook the cheese will melt and combine with the eggs it will be a devine breakfast for everyone!

Next you need to beat the 6 Eggs gently in a small bowl.

Measure the 2 Cups of Half and Half

and pour it into a large bowl.

add the Eggs to the Half and Half

and then add the Flour and mix it all until it is well combined.

Pour the Egg mixture over the Tortillas that line the bottom of your casserole dish.

It will seem like a lot but just keep pouring until everything is in your casserole dish.  Cover with plastic wrap or foil and place in the refrigerator over night.

When you get up in the morning pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and pop your casserole dish into the oven for 35 - 40 minutes covered with foil and cook until the Eggs are set.

When the timer goes off, remove the foil from the baking dish and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of Cheese over the Enchiladas and continue to bake uncovered for another 10 minutes or until the Cheese is melted.

You can serve this warm and creamy dish with Sour Cream, Salsa or even a little hot sauce if you like some heat.  Enjoy!

  1. Hello Becky!
    It looks so delicious and easy to make.
    I'll definetely try this!

  2. These look delish! I often need to come up with a meal for our wrestling boys when we host breakfast. I think these will be it next time around. (Minus the onion because the assistant coach might beat me!) Thanks for the idea. I pinned it for reference and so others can find it as well!
