What you’ll love about Ham and eggs Brunch Enchiladas:

  • A unique and fun way to enjoy breakfast or brunch.
  • Simple ingredients and only takes a few minutes to assemble.
  • Perfect if you’re hosting overnight guests.
  • Delicious and filling.

A couple years ago my mom made a similar version of these for Christmas Eve brunch with the family and they were a total hit! Similar to the beloved breakfast burritos, these ham and egg enchiladas are an easy and convenient prep-ahead meal.

This recipe uses ham which is great because that means you don’t have to cook anything during your prep, so assembling is a breeze. You basically roll up tortillas with a few simple ingredients and pour over your egg mixture. This does however need to be refrigerated for at least 8-hours or overnight but that makes breakfast or brunch the next day so easy.



Ingredients For Ham and Eggs Brunch Enchiladas:

  • Cubed ham
  • Green onions
  • Flour tortillas (low-carb works great)
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Flour
  • Half and half
  • Eggs
  • Seasoned salt
  • Pepper

Variations and substitutions:

  • Meat– Use any cooked breakfast meat you like; bacon, breakfast sausage, and chorizo all work great.
  • Veggies– This is great with diced green or red peppers. Mushrooms and spinach would also be a nice addition. Note: Make sure to sauté the veggies first to prevent excess moisture in the enchiladas.
  • Tortillas– Flour, low carb, and even gluten free work great in this recipe. I have not tried corn tortillas.
  • Cheese– Cheddar is my go-to with ham and eggs but pepper Jack, Colby Jack, Monterey Jack, or swiss cheese are good alternatives.
  • Spices and herbs- Use dried herbs like oregano and Italian seasoning. Other spices that work well are garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper.

How to make Brunch Enchiladas:

Step 1. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium size bowl combine ham and green onions. Place about 1/4 cup mixture down the center of a tortilla and add a little shredded cheese. Roll tightly and place seam side down in baking dish.

Step 2. In a larger bowl combine flour, half and half, eggs, and seasonings. Whisk until smooth. Pour mixture evenly over the tortillas. Use a knife to separate each tortilla so the eggs have a chance to seep down in between the sides. Cover with foil and place in the refrigerator for 8-hours or overnight.

Step 3. Remove from the fridge and allow to sit on the counter for 30-minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350℉ and bake enchiladas with foil on for 35-minutes. Remove the foil and bake another 15-20 minutes. You want the eggs to be just set and not jiggly. Sprinkle on more cheese and bake another 5-10 minutes. Tortillas should be crisp on top and cheese melted. Garnish with more green onions and serve.



What to serve with Brunch enchiladas:

I love to set out toppings like fresh avocado, sour cream, hot sauce and salsa. These enchiladas are filling on their own but breakfast potatoes or fruit would be a great addition.

Storing leftovers:

Store cooled brunch enchiladas in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven until warmed through.
