Breakfast enchiladas overnight – Flour tortillas filled with turkey sausage, green onions, peppers and cheese, covered with a creamy egg mass and baked. A delicious breakfast casserole that can be prepared the night before and baked the next day!

Hey hey Happy Sunday happy friend! Wassup?! Or do you prefer the cold and compiled version, 'dine, with a shake of the head? Remember that Budweiser commercial where a bunch of guys get on the phone and yell, Waaaazzzzzuuupppp !!! It still makes me LOL just thinking about it.

This would be a good time to tell them that I enjoy watching commercials. Much. I know, so weird, right? BUT in my defense, think of that new one in which a couple begins to dance the song “I had the best time of my life"! Oh, my God! It was rolling on the ground the first time I saw it. Damn hilarious! I'm laughing a lot just telling you! 😀

Well then, I will shudder. But first let me tell you about breakfast today, okay? Just give me a minute to lick the cheesy tortilla crumbs off my fingers.

Do you know those times when you have too many eggs in the fridge and making Macarons is not going to happen? Not even a cake? Why don't you just feel like sitting in the kitchen, preparing desserts all day? (I was lazy.) Well, that was me last weekend. I had a couple dozen eggs and decided to take care of 6 of them by making our favorite breakfast enchiladas.

The best of this recipe? Preparing it the night before and simply putting it in the oven the next day. LIFESAVER! Maybe that's giving you too much credit. Maybe not a life buoyBut it's a brunch saver for a crowd of 6 IT!

Uhm, ask. Are they still considered enchiladas even though there is no enchilada sauce there? I like enchilada sauce, I just didn't want to include it here. I undressed them a bit! Does that make up for it? Do we agree with that? I hope. Fingers crossed!

‘Cause, sausages + peppers + green onions + eggs + cheese + toppings = Dang amazing breakfast food!

Try it. I think you will approve!

PS Makes a great BRINNER!
