Enchilada Breakfast Casserole

Shopping List

Breakfast Sausage – go lean and try a Turkey or Chicken sausage If you wish

Bell Peppers – I enjoy Yellow or Red but go ahead and use a green if you like

Eggs – Large eggs, don’t skimp here and use those itty bitty small eggs. Go BIG or Go Home, right?

Flour Tortillas – Soft taco

Half and half or Heavy Cream

Frozen Hash Browns

Cheese – Don’t forget the cheese. A Monterey jack cheese with jalapeno peppers is fantastic!

Let’s make this overnight casserole as easy as we can. I mean you are making it to allow yourself to sleep in just a little bit longer in the morning. So I won’t waste your time now with extra reading.

How to make Overnight Enchilada Casserole

Gather all the ingredients together. Wash and dice the bell peppers. 

In a skillet over medium/high heat brown sausage. Drain off excess grease and add diced bell peppers, cumin and chili powder. 

Add diced bell pepper and saute for just a couple minutes. Bell peppers will continue to cook during the baking process.

Mix in frozen hash-browns. Saute for 2-3 more minutes. The hash-browns won’t fully cook and that’s okay. Remove from heat and set aside.

Fill each tortilla with a spoonful of mix and top with cheese. Roll and place in a greased 9×13 pan seam side down. Continue until all mixture is used.

In a separate bowl combine eggs, half and half, and Enchilada Sauce and whisk together until combined. Pour egg mixture over tortillas and cover with foil. Place in fridge overnight.

Now quickly clean up the kitchen. Make it all sparkly clean because in the morning it’s the BEST feeling to have a clean kitchen!

Breakfast Enchiladas in pan

In the morning preheat the oven to 350F Degrees. Add remaining cheese on top of enchiladas and cover with foil. Bake for 35mins. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes to melt cheese and crisp the top. 

Serve with salsa, sour cream, cilantro, etc.

Breakfast wouldn’t be complete without some fresh juice or fruit. Keep it simple but the splash of color makes all the difference and you will love it. 

There are many Breakfast Bake recipes that can be made overnight but this tasty overnight breakfast casserole has everything my family enjoys.

How to store Breakfast Enchiladas

Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat by placing in microwave and heating in 30 second intervals until hot.

Can you freeze Breakfast Enchiladas

This is a make ahead recipe. It can easily be made a day in advance and baked when you need. The sausage mixture can easily be frozen for later use and thawed to roll tortillas when needed.

Substitutions:

Feel free to add red pepper flakes or even salsa to the half and half to give a great flavor. Top with diced green onions, sour cream, and more salsa or pico.

Corn tortillas can be substituted for flour, however I do find that flour roll better and don’t crack overnight.

A small can of Green Chile and seasoned with Black Pepper can be added to the meat mixture for additional flavor.

This might be a breakfast or brunch recipe but when has that ever stopped anyone when it comes to eating food? The time of day is just that, a time. So go hog wild and enjoy this for dinner too.

You can make this in the morning and bake in the evening. And why not make 2 pans and take one to a neighbor. It will make their day to have this fun recipe.
