Breakfast Enchiladas

Breakfast enchiladas are a fully loaded make-ahead breakfast. They’re perfect for lazy weekends, guests, holidays, or even for ‘breakfast for dinner’!

Ham (or sausage), veggies and cheese are wrapped in tortillas and topped with a seasoned egg mixture. After resting overnight, it all bakes together for the perfect meal.

Sometimes breakfast can get into a rut with the same old things every day, & making a hot breakfast seems like a lot of work. That’s why we love this breakfast enchilada recipe.

It’s an easy make-ahead breakfast casserole to start the week off right! It’s hot and fresh with a kick of spice, great for weekend brunches.

Ingredients & Variations

MEAT Diced ham is a great addition to these enchiladas, but feel free to add sausage, bacon, beef, or chicken!

If you’d prefer, keep it vegetarian and add extra veggies to the diced peppers!

TORTILLAS You can use either flour or corn tortillas. While I make traditional enchiladas with corn tortillas, in this recipe I prefer flour. Remember to warm your tortillas first to keep them from cracking as you roll them.

TOPPINGS Shredded cheddar cheese is sprinkled over each enchilada before baking! Add your favorite taco toppings for serving – sour cream, guacamole, salsa, or chopped green chilies!

How to Make Breakfast Enchiladas

Just a few steps and you’ll be on your way to breakfast perfection!

  1. Whisk egg mixture together (per recipe below) and set aside.
  2. Saute veggies and add in diced ham.
  3. Roll tortillas with veggie mixture, add cheese, place in a casserole dish.
  4. Cover with egg mixture and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning all that’s left to do is preheat the oven and bake the breakfast casserole, adding remainder of cheese in the middle of the baking time! Serve hot and bubbly with toast or hashbrowns and some citrus fruit. Yumminess!

Tips for the Best Breakfast Casserole

  • Part of the magic of this recipe is that the flavors have a chance to meld. Tortillas will soak in the egg mixture and get slightly puffy during the baking process adding great texture.
  • Be sure to cook casserole just until the eggs set.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days, and reheated in the oven or microwave. Refresh with favorite toppings, and serve with a thick slice of toast with butter for a hearty breakfast any day of the week!
