Breakfast Enchiladas with Country Gravy is a hearty breakfast “casserole” that takes breakfast burritos in a casserole form and topped with country gravy and cheese, lots of cheese.
These might just be my new favorite breakfast. Just looking at the pictures again make me want to go in the kitchen and make it again. I used breakfast sausage in my recipe, but you could totally make these bacon enchiladas. You could even go as far as going meatless and have just egg and tortilla breakfast.
What’s in this breakfast enchiladas with country gravy dish?
- Scrambled Eggs
- Diced potatoes
- Crumbled breakfast sausage
- Flour Tortillas
- Country Gravy
- Cheddar Cheese
With this recipe, we’ll scramble the eggs and fry up the potatoes, but your sausage should already be cooked by the time you jump in here. I wanted to give you a tip before we got started anyway. Did you know that you can buy already cooked sausage crumbles? I found them at Walmart. They come in pork AND turkey. Cool, right?
How do you keep enchiladas from getting hard on the bottom?
This applies to any enchiladas. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. Spread your sauce on the bottom of the baking dish before placing the rolled up tortillas. In our case here, we will spread the country gravy as our “sauce”.
Can you freeze breakfast enchiladas?
Yes. You can freeze an UNBAKED casserole for up to 2 months in the freezer. For this recipe, just stop at the point of putting it in the oven. Make sure you place it in a freezer bag.
How do I cook the frozen breakfast enchiladas?
Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Then bake in a preheated oven on 350° for 20–25 minutes, or until heated through.
How do you keep breakfast enchiladas warm for a crowd?
If you are transporting these after cooking them. Place them in a thermo bag/container. If you don’t have one, wrap the entire dish in aluminum foil and wrap/double wrap with a bath towel.
