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).
Source: Key Ingredient
1 lb sausage
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1 T all-purpose flour
2 c half-and-half
1/2 tsp salt
3 oz. package of real bacon bits
In a skillet over medium high heat, brown sausage and then drain fat.
In a large bowl, stir together browned sausage, 1 c. cheese and 1/2 of the package of bacon bits.
Place 1/8 of the mixture down the center of a tortilla. Roll up and place seem side down in a sprayed 9×13 baking dish. Repeat until all tortillas are filled.
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 baked immediately. (I refrigerated it overnight and it turned out great).
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.
Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover dish and bake 10 minutes longer or until set and cheese is melted.
