Another year, another week of brunches. Week of brunch? Yes! It is the week of brunch and it all leads up to a mega giveaway and of course, Mother’s Day. All moms love brunch. A quiet brunch where nobody is asking you for more eggs or toast, or finishing their food when you just sit down to eat your now cold food. No! Those kind of breakfasts and brunches do not count. I recently watched Bad Moms with my own mom. A bit raunchy for a mother daughter movie, but still, lots of chuckles and a few tears.
In the movie, Mila Kunis’ character says all she wants is a quiet brunch alone and that she hasn’t had one in like 12 years, since her kids were born.
My Mom and I were like, yep, we can relate.
Breakfast is such a whirlwind in this house. I am lucky if I get to sit down with the kids and eat. Most likely you can find me shoving my face quickly over the sink, leaving a pile of dirty dishes to run after two half clothed boys who decided that 8am was the right time to run outside and whistle like trains.
This week, I went ahead and made the easiest, prep ahead, heat, and eat breakfast enchiladas. They use the corona and lime red enchilada sauce from the other day. If you don’t want to make that, cool, use store bought. Cook up a huge skillet of sweet potatoes, Russet potatoes, Vidalia onions, and bell peppers. Soft scramble a dozen eggs and then pile it all into some flour tortillas. Top with your favorite enchilada sauce and Cabot cheese. Bake.
Then during the week just scoop out one at a time for a quiet meal. We even ate these for dinner, but don’t tell anybody since this is Brunch Week and all.
Veggie Loaded Breakfast Enchiladas
For the Vegetable Hash:
- 2 Tablespoons Ghee/Clarified Butter
- 1 Russet Potato diced
- 1 Sweet Potato peeled and diced
- 2 Bell Peppers seeded and stemmed and then diced
- 1 Vidalia Onion diced
- 1 Garlic Clove grated
- 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- Freshly Ground black Pepper
For the Enchiladas:
- 12 Large Eggs beaten
- salt and pepper
- 1 Tablespoon Ghee/Clarified butter
- 3/4 Cup Red Enchilada Sauce
- 6-8 Flour Tortillas
- 1/2 Cup Freshly Grated Cabot Pepper Jack Cheese
- 1/2 Cup Freshly Grated Cabot Hot Habanero Cheese
- Diced Avocado
- Pico de Gallo
- Freshly chopped cilantro
- Chopped Green Onion
Heat the clarified butter (or whatever oil/fat) in a large skillet for a minute over a medium/high flame. Add the potatoes. Cover with lid. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove lid and stir potatoes. Cover with lid again and cook another 5 minutes.
Add bell peppers and onion. Season with all the seasonings. Stir to combine. Cook until the onion is translucent and the potatoes are fork tender, 10 minutes.
Reduce heat to low, add garlic. Stir to combine. Remove from heat and set off to the side.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Set out a 9x13-inch baking dish.
Clean out the same skillet you used for the hash. Add the butter/oil/ghee to the pan. Heat over medium/low.
Add beaten eggs, season with salt and pepper.
Use a rubber spatula to push eggs from side to side of the pan until they are a soft scramble. The eggs will cook more in the oven.
Add the enchilada sauce to the baking dish.
Fill each tortilla with a few spoonfuls of eggs and the vegetables. Roll the tortilla from end to end. Place the rolled tortilla seam side up in the sauce and then roll it until it is seam side down and coated in sauce. Continue until 6/8 enchiladas have been rolled and placed in the pan.
Cover enchiladas with cheese. Cover pan with foil and bake for 20 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
Top with avocado, pico de gallo, cilantro, and green onion.
Reheat in the microwave. Store wrapped in foil in the fridge for no more than 5 days.
