These Overnight Breakfast Sausage Enchiladas are the perfect breakfast to serve for a family occasion or for overnight guests!

Overnight Breakfast Sausage Enchiladas

In preparation for our kids all home this weekend, I can’t wait to serve these Overnight Breakfast Sausage Enchiladas, and enjoy a leisurely breakfast together with the family. Our son leaves this next week for China. I got a little weepy last week, in the midst of moving, when the Fed Ex truck pulled up with our son’s 10-year Visa (sniff-sniff).

Of course, having made this recipe in the past, and earlier this week when my sister came to visit, it’s one of my favorites. I also plan to make this for overnight guests that we’ll be hosting later this summer (when our house is more put together)!

I loved having my sis here with me this week, to help organize the house and garage. What a huge help she was! We were also able to go on a few bike rides and walks, and enjoy this magical place where we now live in Central Oregon.

Our home is starting to feel like a home. I’ll be posting soon about the fireplace, the paint on the walls, the lighting–and today we ordered our kitchen appliances and looked at countertops. Oh, and we did paint the kitchen cabinets. Our home looks like a disastrous DIY place at times, but in the evenings, we manage to pick everything up and bring some kind of order to everything. And then in the morning, we start all over again.

Lesson on patience

But we are making progress each day! We were really bummed to not get into this house earlier than we did, to get much of what we’ve been doing done ahead of time, but the stars did not aline. It actually taught my husband and me a lesson in patience, and to go with the flow each day. Our past homes that we’ve bought and sold came together so smoothly, and quickly, so we did get a little impatient.

But in the end, impatience leads to resentment, and it can really make you angry.

One morning, my husband and I both woke up, a few weeks ago, and both realized that we were not going to live this way. We would take what each day had for us, and learn something from it.

So here we are … in our beautiful mountain DIY home, making overnight breakfast casseroles for our 3 kids who will be rolling in this weekend.

We are truly blessed!

Happy weekend, friends!

Overnight Breakfast Sausage Enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. sausage, I use Aidells Pineapple & Bacon sausage
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
  • 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 10 8 inch whole wheat tortillas
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, optional

Instructions

  • Lightly spray a 9×13 inch glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil and sauté the red pepper, onion, and sausage. Combine the cooked sausage mixture with 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese.
  • Lay a tortilla flat on a plate. Scoop about ⅓ cup of the sausage mixture on the tortilla. Roll up tightly and place the enchilada seam side down in the baking dish. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, salt, and cayenne pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the tortillas; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover the dish with foil and refrigerate overnight.
  • In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake (with foil on), for 40 minutes. Remove the foil; bake for 15 minutes more, until the cheese is melted, the eggs are set. The enchiladas will be golden on top. Garnish with tomatoes, sour cream, cilantro, or salsa.
