Easy Overnight Breakfast Casserole

We refer to these Ham & Cheese Breakfast Enchiladas as Quichiladas at our house because they are like a quiche and enchiladas all in one. Whatever you call them, they are delicious! Ham, cheese, and honey mustard wrapped in tortillas and baked in an egg custard. Assemble the casserole the night before and pop it in the oven when you wake up in the morning. Easy Peasy!

How to Make Ham & Cheese Quichilada Breakfast Enchiladas

This casserole is super easy to make. Combine chopped ham, cheese, and honey mustard dressing. Divide the ham mixture between 10 flour tortillas. Roll up each tortilla and place seam side down in a baking dish. Whisk together half and half, eggs, and flour. Pour over tortillas. Cover and let sit overnight. In the morning, remove the dish from the refrigerator. Uncover and bake. Sprinkle the enchiladas with cheese and bake until the cheese has melted.

  • Feel free to add your favorite vegetables to the ham mixture. Mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers are great!
  • I used Ken’s Honey Mustard Dressing.
  • This dish uses soft taco sized flour tortillas. I prefer to use the Mission Carb Balance tortillas.
  • Can I use corn tortillas? Yes. You can use any tortilla that you prefer. Using smaller tortillas will result in more enchiladas.
  • Do I have to let the casserole sit overnight? No. You can assemble and bake the casserole right away if you are short on time.
  • Can Ham & Cheese Breakfast Enchiladas be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the casserole baked or unbaked.
    • To bake the casserole after freezing, thaw, and bake as directed.
    • To reheat the casserole after freezing, thaw and reheat in the microwave or covered in the oven at 350ºF until warm.

  1. I made this for brunch last Sunday. YUMMY! I used a bag of frozen mushrooms and onions worked great. I LOVE all of your recipes.

  2. These look super good and I'm a huge fan of things that can be made up the day before – probably why so many of my breakfasts are made from leftovers.

  3. Oh yum! We love to have breakfast for dinner during the week. It would be easy to make this up before I leave work and then pop it in the oven when we get home. Great idea! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
