Breakfast Enchiladas

Are breakfast enchiladas a thing?  Like a popular thing?  Cuz I had never heard of such a thing!  I’d hear of breakfast burritos, but never a breakfast enchilada.  I wondered what the difference would even be.  When I saw the recipe on pinterest, it piqued my interest.  The ingredients looked basic enough: sausage, cheese, bacon, egg…nothing new.

This breakfast turned out AWESOME!  Even before I’d taken a bite, I already loved how pretty they all looked in the pan, lined up next to one another, topped with melted cheese and bacon, with fluffy egg puffing out the sides, hiding away mounds of delicious sausage inside.  Mmmm…it was good.  If you’re the type of person who likes sweet syrup on your breakfast foods, you could probably drizzle some on and kick it up a notch!

This is a simple recipe too.  The only challenging part is rolling up the tortillas without spilling any precious filling.  But hey, if any fall out, you’re allowed to just eat it plain.  So it’s not a total loss :-).  I also like that it can be baked right away or refrigerated overnight (which is what I did).

Breakfast Enchiladas

Yields: 8 servings

Breakfast Enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 1 lb sausage
  • 2 c shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 T all-purpose flour
  • 2 c half-and-half
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 oz. package of real bacon bits

Directions

  1. In a skillet over medium high heat, brown sausage and then drain fat.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together browned sausage, 1 c. cheese and 1/2 of the package of bacon bits.
  3. Place 1/8 of the mixture down the center of a tortilla. Roll up and place seem side down in a sprayed 9x13 baking dish. Repeat until all tortillas are filled.
  4. In another large bowl beat eggs, flour and salt. Mix in half-and-half. Pour over the tortillas in the pan. You can cover the dish and place in the fridge or bake immediately. (I refrigerated it overnight and it turned out great).
  5. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Uncover dish and sprinkle remaining 1 cup of cheese over tortillas. Sprinkle the rest of the bacon bits over cheese.
  6. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover dish and bake 10 minutes longer or until set and cheese is melted.

  1. Hmm. I’m confused. The recipe calls for the eggs to be poured into the dish after the enchiladas are rolled with the sausage filling. Clearly, in the photo the egg is part of the filling and not used as a “sauce” for the enchiladas.

  2. Lindsay – have you ever done this recipe where you make the night before and than bake in the morning?

  4. My family really liked these. Super easy to make. So many variations it makes my head spin! I think green chiles would be awesome in this dish. I also added a little jack cheese with cheddar and onion powder to egg mixture. Definitely a keeper, thanks for sharing!

      Do you mean, could you replace it with something else? Or do you mean leave it out entirely? I wouldn’t leave it out entirely because it makes your egg filling fluffy and light. Without it, you’d just have baked scrambled eggs. If you just don’t have any half-and-half on hand, you could mix a cup of milk with a tablespoon of melted butter.

  5. Easy to make and delicious, these were a hit at my house. We even warmed the leftovers and had a great dinner with them. Thank you for making my time in the kitchen easier and for making me feel like I was born to cook. :D

      You are so welcome! Glad you enjoyed this dish, and I hope you find lots of other easy and delicious recipes to try. Thank you for your kind words!

  6. I have read the instruction several times and it reads that the eggs are poured over the rolled tortillas the pan. The picture looks like the eggs are in the rolled up tortillas. What is correct?

  7. omg. enchiladas are me and fiancée’s favorite food, and breakfast foods (eggs, bacon, sausage, etc) are our second favorite! we are having this IMMEDIATELY. i’m SO excited, this is like the perfect combination of both of our first and second favorite foods!

    ahhhhhh I love it!

  8. I just made these for dinner and goodness they look yummy. I made a few additions so they would stretch a little further for my family of 5. I fried up a few potatoes and added green onions. I can’t wait to dig in!!

  9. I agree that the worse thing about cooking is cleaning up after myself. Just open the flour container and I get it everywhere. I am just a messy cook I guess. But I love to try, especially baking.

      Oh I am so messy when I cook! Flour is the worst. I also tend to stir vigorously and slosh things out of bowls…I apparently turn into a 5 year old when I cook.

  10. Made this for dinner tonight! Everyone one loved it (even the one who said he didn’t like eggs). Very good. The edges did get a little crispy for our liking, so maybe try to get more of the egg mixture around the edges next time. This will definitely go into our rotation of favorites.
