In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage until no longer pink. Remove sausage from skillet.
Add hash browns to skillet and cook until starting to brown.
Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Mix together sausage, hash browns and 2 cups of cheddar cheese. Divide meat and cheese mixture between tortillas. Roll up each tortilla and place seam side down in baking dish.
Whisk together egg and half-and-half. Pour over tortillas.
Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350ºF. Bake covered for 30 to 40 minutes.
Remove foil and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese over enchiladas. Bake for 5 - 10 more minutes, until cheese has melted.
I used flour tortillas in this burrito casserole. Feel free to swap them for corn tortillas. You will get more breakfast burritos using corn tortillas because they are smaller.
I used Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage. You can substitute turkey sausage if you prefer.
Feel free to add onions, spinach, bell peppers, and mushrooms to the burrito mixture. Add the veggies to the skillet when the sausage or hash browns cook to soften them and reduce moisture. You could even add a can of diced tomatoes and green chiles to the mixture if you want to kick these up a notch!
This casserole will freeze great. Make the casserole up to the point of refrigerating. Cover the casserole dish and freeze it. To bake from frozen, thaw completely in the refrigerator and bake as directed below.
You can also freeze this casserole after it has been baked. Cover the casserole and thaw and reheat when ready to serve. You can reheat the casserole in the oven or microwave.
For leftovers, I wrap the individual breakfast burritos in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer bag. That way I can pull one breakfast burrito out of the freezer for a quick breakfast. Just pop in the microwave for a few minutes and breakfast is done!
