Brunch Ham Enchiladas

When I'm expecting company for brunch, the menu often features this tried-and-true casserole. With ham, eggs and plenty of cheese, the enchiladas are flavorful, hearty and fun. And they're easy to assemble the day before. —Gail Sykora, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

    Flavor was ok, but we didn't care for the texture of the eggs, too much 1/2 & 1/2 for the amount of eggs. Took longer to bake than directed, tortia became dried out and the egg mixture that had seeped into the tortia was runny.

    The recipe in the magazine said that you should put 1/3 cup of filling on each tortilla, and I ran out after 8 tortillas. But it still tasted good.

    Loved this!!!! It had an awesome flavor and was so easy to make. I did make a couple of changes though - we like a lot of flavor so I saut?ed onion & green peppers and put down the center of each tortilla. I did not have ham so used deli ham and chopped it up instead which worked great. You could also use cooked sausage in place of ham which would be a nice alternative. When preparing the tortillas I drizzled siracha mayo or mustard on them before putting the other ingredients. Just added to the flavor! I will definitely make these again!!!

    Such a great recipe for the holidays or when you are feeding a crowd. Make the dish ahead of time and then pop it into the oven for a hot and hearty breakfast. This is a keeper!

    This is a wonderful dish! I used whole grain tortillas, and made some with ham and some with broccoli and mushrooms for my brunch guests who don't eat meat. Both were so tasty, and really easy to make. This recipe is a keeper!

    I made it lightened up as suggested on the bottom with ff milk instead of half & half. Save the half and half for coffee please! I used beef sausage instead of ham (hubby's preferance) and used half shredded pepper jack and half shredded cheddar on the top. I also took another reviewers idea and put in green pepper. Next time I will saute all the veggies since they were slightly crunchy after cooking. Love the convenience of prep at night and just throwing it in the oven in the am. Great for my honey who works night shift is hungry very early at 6-7am.
