Just in case you want to eat as much ham as you possible can on Easter, here are some overnight Ham and Cheese Breakfast Enchiladas. Or if you’re trying to use up some leftover ham, here’s your dish.
I’ve had breakfast burritos but never breakfast enchiladas so these completely intrigued me. Ham and cheese is rolled up into a tortilla and then a egg/milk mixture is poured over the top. The egg mixture sneaks into the tortillas so that when they’re baked the egg ends up inside.
I would say that these are really mild and the only thing Mexican about them is the tortilla and the fact that you serve them with salsa. I really liked them this way because in the morning I crave that ham and cheese flavor. But if you wanted to up the Mexican factor in these you could add some diced green chilies to the egg mixture for some extra kick.
Look how easy these come together.
You want to make sure you bake them until the egg mixture is completely set.They taste best when served with a dollop of sour cream and some salsa.
These are made the night before – a plus for me because I am soooo not a morning person.
