These were perfect for when I had family coming in for the holidays. I don’t know about you but when I have company for the holidays, I try to make as many meals ahead of time as possible.

That way I can just focus on my family or guests and not worry about spending all my time in the kitchen prepping and cooking.

This recipe was perfect for the occasion!

Is your mouth watering yet?

These breakfast enchiladas are filled with some of our breakfast favorites, ham and cheddar but you can easily make this recipe your own just but customizing the ingredients for the filling.

You can add in any kind of cooked sausage such as chorizo or breakfast sausage. I had some ham leftover from the holidays and so it worked perfectly!

When feeding a crowd, I also sometimes add in some extra  vegetables to make them a little bit bigger! Add in any kind of veggies, bell peppers and mushrooms are great choices.  (Pre-cook the mushrooms so they don’t get watery).

  1. This is a great recipe! I have made this many times now, and it is a delicious casserole and saves so much time! I have substituted different meats ( sausage, bacon),  different cheeses (Monterey Jack, Swiss, ) and different veggies on hand (including hatch green chili)! Just wonderful!! 

  2. This looked so good I planned on making it and thought I had everything. I added green peppers because we love them and I had them. 
    I didn’t have everything because I used the ham the night before (thought I had enough for both nights). So I substituted sausage and made a little gravy. I also totally forgot to make it ahead of time, but stabbed the tortillas a few time, and cooked it anyway. OMG so good! The eggs stayed mainly on the edges, but it was like a quiche with a surprise inside. Already have plans to make as stated. My boys have already asked for this to be put on regular rotation. 

    • So glad to hear that you loved this recipe Tracy! As you already know, it’s versatile to use what you’ve got on hand 🙂

    • Can you make this with corn tortillas? I thought burritos were made with flour tortillas and enchiladas with corn tortillas. Just a thought.

  3. Has any one tried this using canned milk we normally don’t use regular milk fast enough before it goes bad so we have started using canned milk for everything . It really makes the best gravy for biscuits and gravy with sausage .
    Just wondering if anyone has tried it with this thanks .

    • I havne’t tried it but think it would work. Maybe another reader has! Let us know if you try it Sean!

  4. Can you add hash browns or tater tots if so when do you think it could be added?

  5. Planning to make this – looks delicious! Question – do you bring it down to room temperature before baking or direct from refrigerator? 

    • If I have time, I set it out, which may help it bake on the lower range of cooking time. But you can pop it right into the oven from the fridge. Enjoy, Janice!

  6. I really want to try this, but have to ask, do the bottoms of the tortilla wrap get soggy from sitting with the egg for so long? I know when I make regular enchiladas and put the enchilada sauce over the top it goes to the bottom also and the tortilla wraps get soggy. When it gets soggy I just can’t eat it.

    • The egg mixture cooks as it bakes and I would consider the enchiladas texture to be soft and cooked through, not soggy. I hope you enjoy it Phyllis!

  7. Made this …so easy love it …perfect for Sunday Mornings..thank you

  8. I was looking for an enchilada sauce in the recipe? This is just kind of a breakfast burrito.

  9. Just made the casserole too. I used less 1/2 & 1/2 and still runny. Little disappointed in that however easy to make. Will try ag

    • I’m sorry to hear that it didn’t work for you. I have made this recipe as written and it has worked for me. I can’t say for sure why it didn’t work out.

  10. Holly,
    I made this last night. Didn’t have enough milk and substituted part with Greek yogurt and it turned out amazing! Next time I think I will add diced cooked potatoes to the top before I add the final cheese. Thanks for the great recipe.

  11. Does this have to be in the fridge overnight or can I just bake it right away? Thanks.

  12. can you make the night brfore abd leave inrefrigerator

  13. could you leave this premade in the fridge for 24 hours before it is cooked?

  14. Made this morning after letting sit overnight. Only thing I will change next time is 1/2 & 1/2 mix and eggs. Thought was a little soggy, so either add 1/2 of egg mix and let set then add rest in AM, or not add other 1/2? Otherwise yummy and easy!!

  15. We own the Ivy House Bed and Breakfast Indiana. I made this this morning and my guests loved it. It looked so good on the plate. I served tomatoes and avocado with it on the side of the plate. Yum!

  16. Followed to the letter. Mine was runny. Is this normal? Wonder if 1 1/2 c 1/21/2 is too much. Or needs flour? Worried me that it might not be fully cooked.

  17. If using sausage meat would it have to be pre- cooked?

  18. you could add leftover broccoli, asparagus and/or summer squash/zucchini to the mix. Omit the meat and add in sauteed mushrooms and the veggies. A VERY versatile dish. I’ll be trying this for Meatless Monday using the mushrooms/veggie version! Thanks for sharing the recipe

  19. How is this considered overnight when it doesn’t cook overnight as that phrase would imply? I mean I still have to do most of the work and bake it for 30 mins. So it’s not really a good one for busy people, but it does look yummy.

  20. Can you use corn tortillas? Last time I had a casserole with flour tortillas, it was gooey.
