Breakfast Enchiladas ~ Tortillas stuffed with sausage, eggs, cheese and bacon then topped with more bacon and cheese! Make the night before!

A couple weekends ago we headed up to the cabin with my mom and dad for a relaxing weekend. The guys were going to try the ice fishing up there and us girls were just going to hang out and do a little shopping. It sounded great. We could just relax and do whatever we wanted and not have a worry.

This sounded great until the hubby came down with a bad cold a couple days before we left. He decided he was good enough to go so we still went. Saturday morning the guys headed out to the lake and us girls left to do some shopping. Throughout the morning I thought my throat was a little dry but blamed it conveniently on the cabin and hoping it was just dry in there. As the day wore on the sicker I became until that night I was shivering, exhausted and aching. Fun stuff. Off to bed I went. The next day I felt terrible still but the aches were gone I just had a terribly sore throat. This went on for a couple days then it moved to my head. Ugh. Seriously. Could the chest cold not be enough. Nope. Everything started draining. Lovely picture I’m painting here isn’t it? It seems like so many people are sick right now. I’m so ready for spring.

It’s only the middle of January. *SIGH*

If you are looking for a breakfast to warm you up in the bitterly cold January winter here one is. It’s a bit of a fun twist on a regular old egg bake. You can switch the meat for whatever you like or have on hand. I was worried the tortillas were going to be soggy if I put the eggs in the night before but I did it anyways and it was awesome! The eggs run into the tortillas and it’s so yummy!

    I feel you. You got it worse than me but I’m still feeling weak after being achy and feverish and it’s no fun working like that. boohoo. It really does seem like the sickness levels are higher than normal this year! Thank you for making breakfast enchiladas, I feel better already. 🙂

  • Cassidy

    These look great… and my hubby would love them.
    Found you at Trick or Treat Tuesday, thanks for sharing.

  • Becca @ Crumbs and Chaos

    I adore breakfast and these look amazing! Can’t wait to give them a try!

  • Christia Schock

    OH WOW!!! These are so very yummy looking! Pinning for sure! Thank you for sharing!

    Are they freezable? Good either way but I love prepping ahead!

    • Julie

      I’m not sure they’d be freezable. I’d worry about the eggs freezing and thawing correctly. If you try it let me know!

  • Stephanie @ Macaroni and Cheesecake

    This sounds like a great breakfast! I’m not big on egg casseroles but this sounds right up my alley! I’ve had a dry scratchy throat this week and now everything is draining too. Ugh! Hope you feel better!

    • Julie

      Neither am I! I’m so picky when it comes to them, but this one I actually liked.

  • Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust

    I think this would get me to eat eggs! I really want to make it! Pinned. 🙂

    • Julie

      Not an egg fan huh? Neither am I and the hubby loves eggs…not a match made in heaven 🙂

  • Addicted to Recipes

    Sounds delicious! Pinned!

  • Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

    What a fun twist for breakfast!! I think my kids would really enjoy these!!

  • Jordan Rose

    I just made this recipe at a brunch and it was a huge hit! Definitely the first empty pan on the whole table! Thanks for sharing!

  • best food and recipes


  • Julie @ This Gal Cooks

    Breakfast enchilada, what a fantastic idea! I’m going to have to do this one day. Thanks for the great recipe, Julie!

  • Tonia

    I already ate breakfast and now I want these! Maybe tomorrow morning?

  • Donna

    Just wondering if I could make this with soft corn tortillas instead of flour to make it gluten free? They are a little softer though so would they get too soggy?

    • Julie Evink

      I can’t say for sure because I’ve never did it but I’d say to give it a shot!

  • kentuckylady717

    This sounds delicious, but why not use real bacon…the bacon bits are terrible…..but for sure I will not be using bacon bits…..even the real bacon bits are no where as good as frying fresh bacon and crumble it up……

    • Julie Evink

      You can totally use real bacon, I was looking for a short cut for myself.

  • Diane

    Going to ask a dumb question, if it makes 10 enchiladas, how come you only use 8 tortillas?

  • Margie Hastings

    Did anyone try to freeze them and if so what was your result? I am starting the once a month cooking and these would be a great option if you can freeze.

  • Melanie Helmke

    hi! So these look really good and sound easy. I do not cook and hate cooking but since hubby does it all week, weekends are my turn. Ugh I was wondering, in the recipe, you say to pour the eggs over the tortillas after you stuff and roll them placing them seam side down but in the picture, the eggs are inside. As a non cooker, what am I missing here? Thank you so much for any help. Im hoping to surprise hubby with this breakfast.. :o)

    • Julie Evink

      When you pour the eggs over the tortillas they will flow into and around the tortillas so you end up with eggs in the tortilla and around it!

  • Terri

    Consider it pinned! Looking for something a little different as a make-ahead and I think I’ve found it. Will post again after tomorrow morning. Can’t wait!!

    • Julie Evink

      Enjoy Terri!

      • Terri

        One word – AWESOME!! We came to the conclusion you can add just about anything you’d like – diced tomatoes, olives, green chiles, mushrooms.

        Thanks for the fantastic recipe. It was a bullseye!!

  • Heather Gonzales

    These look delicious! I’m definitely pinning them to add to our menu. I love ‘outside the box’ breakfast ideas. It can be so easy to slip into a major rut for breakfast and get totally bored. That’s actually how I came up with the idea for the Breakfast Pizza Bites recipe on my blog. We were bored of the same few things over and over again. I’d love for you to come check it out at
