Make-Ahead Breakfast Enchiladas

Our family loves breakfast for dinner. This is a great one because prep time is quick (about 20 minutes) and you can throw it together in the morning, leave it in the fridge all day, and then throw it in the oven 45 minutes before dinnertime.

This recipe is fun too, because it's very versatile. You can customize the fillings and toppings to individual preference. It can also easily be doubled for feeding a large group, and/or can be frozen for later. I often make 2 and freeze one. If you plan to freeze a pan, be sure to cook it first! Cool, cover tightly with foil, and then freeze for up to one month. To reheat out of the freezer, keep the foil on the dish and bake at 350 for 45 minutes, until the enchiladas are warmed through.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups deli ham, chopped small
  • 1/2 cup diced green onions
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 10 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 1/4 cups half-and-half
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • salsa, sour cream, and extra green onions or cilantro for serving

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Coat a 9×13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the ham, green onions and 2 cups of the cheese in a medium bowl. Scoop 1/3 cup of the cheese mixture onto each tortilla; roll up and place seam side down in the baking dish.
  3. Whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, salt, and flour. Pour liquid over tortillas. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. In the morning, preheat oven to 350º F. Bake, covered, for 35 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of cheese over enchiladas. Bake for 10 more minutes or until tops are golden brown and the egg mixture is set.
  5. Serve with salsa, sour cream, and additional green onions or cilantro.

The purpose of letting this dish sit all day (or overnight, if serving for breakfast) is so the tortillas and filling can absorb the egg mixture. (They need at least 6 hours to soak.)
