Skinny Breakfast Enchiladas

I love everything about hot breakfasts (no, toast & english muffins don't count; though I do love cinnamon toast)...probably because I rarely eat them.  A typical breakfast for me is cereal, coffee & maybe some fruit. HOW EXCITING!  Hot breakfasts also generally mean it's the weekend!

The best part of this recipe is the ability to completely customize each individual enchilada. This worked out well for J & I who definitely have different taste buds.  I used Egg Beaters instead of eggs & used a lot more veggies to make this more filling & healthy. I got this recipe from Inspired Taste & it definitely did not disappoint. This can be made ahead of time & refrigerated before cooking. It was easy & delicious! Can't ask for more than that!

Serves: 4
Cook time according to Inspired Taste: 1 hour
Cook time according to Rachel: 1 hour!
How difficult was this for Rachel? Pretty easy!

4 eggs
4 8-inch whole wheat tortillas
1 cup half & half
1/2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Cheese of your choice to sprinkle on top (or inside) I chose fat free cheddar
Veggies & breakfast meats of your choice.
Note: make sure meat is pre-cooked


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, flour & half & half.
In each tortilla, fill with veggies, meat & cheese of your choice. 
Make sure you are able to roll it up completely.  J got a little eager & had slight issues with this. Each tortilla should have approx 1/3 cup of filling. This is important in later steps.
Roll tortillas leaving the ends open. Do the front two look a little less stuffed than the back 2? You can guess who filled which 2.
Take the egg mix & spread completely over the tortillas.
Make sure to let some egg run down the sides. When the egg cooks, it will seep into the tortilla. Hence the importance of not overfilling. There needs to be room for the egg to seep in.
Sprinkle with cheese.
Cover with tinfoil & bake aprox 20 mins until the eggs are cooked through & the cheese is melted. 
I added a few extra mins longer than the suggested 20 mins.

Good luck eating just one!
