Breakfast enchiladas recipe

I love to cook and expand the boundaries of cooking

I love making these enchiladas when we have many people at home. When we have a good company, I don’t want to spend time in the kitchen and time to meal prep everything. This way I can stay with my family and friends and not worry about something burning in the oven. These enchiladas are one of my all-time favorites.

These breakfast enchiladas are filled with everyone’s favorite ingredients: cheese, sausages, eggs and cilantro. The recipe is very versatile and you can customize it to your liking.

You can add any type of sausages such as chorizo. I would recommend getting savory sausages that have a strong flavor. If you have ham leftovers, the recipe will come together even faster. If you need to feed the crowd, you can add more vegetables and make enchiladas bigger. Add all vegetables you want, my favorites are bell peppers.

  • 1 package ground pork sausage
  • 30 ml butter
  • 4 green onions
  • 30 ml fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 14 beaten eggs
  • 4 ml salt
  • 6 ml pepper
  • 60 ml cheese sauce
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 225 ml Monterey jack cheese

For the toppings:

  • 100 ml tomatoes
  • 100 ml onions, sliced
  • 100 ml cilantro, chopped


  1. Take a skillet and cook sausage over medium heat according to instructions on the package, stir them until the sausage isn't pink anymore. Remove from pan and drain the excess liquid. Press the sausage between paper towels.

  2. Take a skillet and melt the butter over medium heat. Add cilantro and onions, and sauté for 2 minutes. Add pepper, salt, and eggs and cook for 3 minutes. The egg whites should set. Take a spatula and draw a line across the bottom of the pan to form curds. Cook the eggs until thickened but a little bit moist. Place the pan on the counter, add cheese sauce and sausage.

  3. Spoon one third of the mixture in the center of every tortilla, roll it up. Take a baking dish and seam tortillas side down. Pour the sauce over tortillas, sprinkle them with the cheese. Preheat the oven to 350F and bake tortillas for 30 minutes. The sauce should be bubbly. Serve with toppings you like.
