An easy and delicious breakfast casserole is the perfect way to start the day. Even better when it can be made a day or two ahead and simply popped in the oven before breakfast! I am excited to have partnered with Simply Potatoes to bring you this easy breakfast favorite!
Breakfast Enchilada Ingredients
This casserole is a hearty, hash brown, egg, and cheese-filled meal. We love this recipe because it’s quick to make and tastes great!
TORTILLAS: While enchiladas are typically made with corn tortillas, I most often use flour tortillas in this recipe.
HASHBROWNS: To make prep extra quick for this recipe, we use Simply Potatoes shredded hashbrowns. They’re made from real, fresh potatoes (never frozen) and require no defrosting, chopping, or pre-cooking. These hash browns go straight from the fridge to the filling with no extra work!
ADDITIONS: The base of the filling for this recipe is hash browns. For extra flavor, we add sweet bell peppers, ham, and cheese. I add ham, you can make this with or without ham, bacon or even sausage.
EGG MIXTURE: Eggs are the base of this recipe. I season them simply with salt & pepper but you can add in your favorite seasonings, even a dash or two of taco seasoning.
