Overnight Breakfast Enchiladas – Flour Tortillas filled with turkey sausage, green onions, peppers and cheese, covered in a creamy egg batter and baked. A delicious breakfast casserole that can be prepped the night before and baked the next day!
Hey Hey!! Happy Happy Sunday, buddy! Wassup?! Or do you prefer the chill and collected version, ‘sup, with a head-nod?
Remember that Budweiser commercial where a bunch of dudes get on the phone and just scream, Waaaazzzzzuuupppp!!! Still makes me LOL just thinking about it.
This would be a good time to tell you that I enjoy watching commercials. A lot. I know, so weird, right? BUT in my defense, think about that new one where a couple starts dancing to the song, “I had the time of my Life“! OH my G! I was rolling on the floor the first time I saw it. Freakin’ hilarious! I’m LOL-ing hard just telling you about it! 😀
Okay, so I’ll shuddup. But first let me tell you about today’s breakfast, m’kay? Just gimme a minute to lick the final cheesy tortilla crumbs off my fingers.
You know those times when you just have way too many eggs in the fridge and making Macarons is jut not going to happen? Nor a cake? Because you just don’t feel like sitting in the kitchen, prepping desserts all day long? (I was lazy.) Okay so that was me last weekend. I had a couple dozen eggs and decided to take care of 6 of ’em by making our favorite Breakfast Enchiladas.
The best-est thing about this recipe? Making it the night before and just popping it in the oven the next day. LIFE-SAVER! Maybe that’s giving it too much credit. Maybe not a life saver, but a brunch saver for a crowd of 6 IT is!
Uhm, question. Are they still considered enchiladas even though there’s no enchilada sauce in there?!? I like enchilada sauce, I just didn’t want to include it in here. I DID skinnify them a bit! Does that make up for it?? Are we okay with that? I hope. Fingers crossed!
‘Cause, Sausage Links + Peppers + Green Onions + Eggs + Cheese + Toppings = Dang amazing breakfast food!
Try it. I think you’ll approve!
P.S. Makes a great BRINNER!
