Start this breakfast casserole the night before. Serve with salsa and a side fruit salad to start your morning with something special. Originally from a November 2006 issue of Southern Living. For a change, substitute ground pork sausage, either mild or spicy, for the ham. Prep time does not include chill or standing time.
- 2 cups cooked ham, diced (about 3/4 pound)
- 1⁄2 cup green onion, diced
- 10 corn tortillas
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
- 6 large eggs
- 1 (4 1/2 ounce) canchopped green chilies
- 2 cups half-and-half (I've used the fat-free version)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground red pepper
- Sprinkle cooked ham and chopped green onions evenly down the center of each tortilla;top each with 2 tablespoons of shredded cheese.
- Roll up tortillas and place, seam sides down, in a lightly greased 13x9 inch baking dish.
- Whisk together the eggs and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; pour mixture evenly over tortillas.
- Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
- Remove from refrigerator and let stand 30 minutes at room temperature before baking.
- Bake, covered, at 350°F for 20 minutes; uncover and bake 15 minutes.
- Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheddar cheese and bake 3-4 more minutes or until cheese melts.
- Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Yummy! And easy to put together the night before. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
This is a great recipe. The green onions add a great flavor, but they can get really strong so add to your particular taste. Thank you for posting this! I am in the process of moving and my recipe box is packed. We have been making this recipe for years and I was so glad to be able to find it re-posted here so we can make it for dinner tonight!
Yummy, yummy, yummy. This was a perfect way for me to use up some tortillas that had been in the fridge for awhile. Very simple to put together. I skipped the overnight refrigeration because I wanted it yesterday, but this would be a great "make-ahead" recipe for breakfast. You could really play with this recipe and mix up the ingredients. Made for A Day in Bargain Basement 2011. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe!
