  Breakfast Burrito Casserole
  • 2 cups of diced ham, cooked sausage, or cooked bacon ( any of them work, but we prefer sausage)
  • 10 tortillas (We prefer corn, but you can also use flour tortillas)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar, pepper jack, or colby jack cheese, divided
  • 2 cups half and half ( you can use milk, but half and half is better)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • salsa for serving

In a large bowl combine meat and 1 1/2 cups of cheese.

Place about 1/4 cup of mixture in each tortilla and roll up.

Place filled tortillas into a 9×13 pan.

In a bowl combine eggs, half and half, and salt. Mix together well and pour over filled tortillas.

Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, remove them from the fridge and let stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

Bake covered at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake about 10 minutes more.

Serve with salsa and enjoy!
