Breakfast Enchiladas
Enjoy the make-ahead ease of this casserole. Prepare the recipe, without baking, and refrigerate overnight. Make the Cheese Sauce before scrambling the eggs so the sauce will be ready to add at the proper time.

Ingredients

  • 1 (1-pound) package hot ground pork sausage
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 14 large eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Cheese Sauce
  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeños

Toppings

  • Halved  grape tomatoes
  • Sliced green onions
  • Chopped fresh cilantro

Preparation

  1. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink. Remove from pan; drain well, pressing between paper towels.
  2. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add green onions and cilantro, and sauté 1 minute.
  4. Add eggs, salt, and pepper, and cook, without stirring, until eggs begin to set on bottom.
  5. Draw a spatula across bottom of pan to form large curds. Continue to cook until eggs are thickened but still moist; do not stir constantly.

  7. Spoon about 1/3 cup egg mixture down the center of each flour tortilla; roll up. Place, seam side down, in a lightly greased 13- x- 9-inch baking dish.
  8. Pour remaining Cheese Sauce evenly over tortillas; sprinkle evenly with Monterey Jack cheese.
  9. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until sauce is bubbly.
