My mom, her brother, and sisters like to get together every winter for a weekend of fun and craft projects. Several years ago they made a cookbook and my mom gave me one. My mom and aunts are all fabulous cooks so it is definitely on my list of favorite cookbooks to use.
This recipe is in that special cookbook and was submitted by my Aunt Susan.
2 cups cubed ham
1/2 cup chopped green onion
10 flour tortillas
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 Tbsp. flour
2 cups half and half
6 eggs, beaten
salt to taste
Combine ham and onions. Place about 1/3 cup down the center of each tortilla. Top with 2 Tbsp. cheese. Roll up and place seam side down in a greased 9 x 13 pan.
In a bowl, combine flour, cream, eggs, and salt until smooth. Pour over tortillas.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove about 30 minutes before baking.
Cover and bake at 350° for 25 minutes.
Uncover and bake 10 minutes longer.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake until cheese is melted.
Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
My enchiladas had to bake a little longer. However my oven has never been at the correct temperature since the repairman came to "fix" the thermostat.
I didn't have green onions, so I used dried minced. Not the same, but it worked. If you have green onions on hand and your kids aren't revolted by all things green I would definitely use the green onions.
Hubby ate his enchilada with some homemade salsa and really liked it. I ate mine plain. The kids ate theirs with ketchup which completely turned my stomach, but whatever right???
So there you go, a fun make-ahead breakfast that is completely yummy. Perfect for weekends or when you are just wishing your Wednesday was like a weekend.
