Breakfast Enchiladas

We are back! J and I had a great time seeing both of our families. And now Christmas time is here! I have been doing a little shopping at JCrew this morning for Cyber feels so good to save money! I only have 3 more gifts to get for Christmas.

Thanksgiving day, Mommasita wanted to have our pictures taken for her Christmas card. Here are some fun photos from our shoot.

Love this shot of Mommasita

The only one where we all look good!

Like father, like son...

Katy and I made breakfast for Saturday morning. I first made these when I went to the ranch with my mom in September. This breakfast is a winner! I think we will make them again when in Ruidoso for Christmas.

Breakfast Enchiladas
2 cups of cubed cooked ham
1/2 cup chopped green onions
10 flour tortillas (not pictured)
2 cups shredded cheese. plus 1/2 cup for later
1 Tbsp flour
2 cups half and half
6 eggs
This dish is assembled the night before and cooked in the morning. Remember to start it the night before!
Chop ham and green onions. It is easier to chop ham if it is a spiral ham!
Mix together the ham, green onions and 2 cups of cheese.
Whisk together the eggs, half and half and flour.
Use a 1/3 cup to scoop out ham mixture onto a flour tortilla. 
Roll up the tortilla and place seam side down in a baking dish. You can zap the tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds to make them easier to work with.
All 10 tortillas should fit in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish, just squeeze them together tight.
Pour egg mixture over tortillas.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, preheat your oven to 350. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until no longer jiggly.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with 1/2 cup of cheese.
Bake for 10 more minutes and remove.
Serve with a side of salsa.
These were yummy the next morning too!
PS I am sure you could use a different meat in them as well, like sausage or bacon.

This looks great - kind of like a tortilla quiche. I can't wait to try it!
