A home cook’s definition of misery: inviting friends over for breakfast and hectically running around the kitchen while everyone else mingles and knocks back mimosas. With this recipe, you can entertain with ease. Assemble this make-ahead breakfast special the night before and wake up to fully loaded enchiladas for ten or more. Minimal fuss, maximum flavor. After all, who can resist fluffy, soft eggs, salty ham, and melty cheese cocooned in warm tortillas? Absolutely no one. Got leftovers? Much like chili, these enchiladas are even better reheated the day after. Warning: You will lick your plate like a hungry animal.Note: Allow for eight hours of chilling time.Breakfast Enchiladas
