Breakfast Enchiladas

When you think of breakfast what comes to mind? How about breakfast enchiladas? In most parts of the world they don't actually have specific breakfast foods like we do, essentially they can eat anything, consider Japan where they eat fish and noodles first thing in the morning. In North America however, we do have certain breakfast standards. We are accustomed to eating eggs, toast, bacon, cereal, smoothies, oatmeal, or yogurt and granola. It would seem weird to eat a steak right after waking up, but that's what some people across the globe enjoy. Despite the traditions across the nations, I am glad to be a part of the good old fashioned breakfast crew.

Eggs are one of the most versatile ingredients; you can use them as a meal, as a base, as an addition to baking... there are so many things that benefit from eggs. One way you can enjoy them is breakfast enchiladas. It's a great way to feed a lot of people, have something delicious, and it's easy to clean up so essentially there are no reasons you shouldn't make them.

This recipe only has a grand total of 8 ingredients in it, so you will probably learn it by heart and enjoy making it over and over again like me. With the finishing touches of bacon and cheese, you can't go wrong! These are pretty simple to whip up, so you don't need to be a great cook to make them, I promise. If you haven't heard of these things before, then you're not alone, they were quite new to me as well until recently. Sound tasty? Make your family a batch!

Breakfast is the first meal eaten after rising from a night's sleep, usually eaten in the early morning before going off to school or work. The word breakfast literally refers to breaking the fasting period of the night before. Breakfast foods vary widely depending where you live, but often include a carbohydrate such as grains or cereals, fruit, vegetables, a protein food such as tofu, beans, eggs, meat or fish, and a beverage such as tea, coffee, milk, or fruit juice. Coffee, milk, tea, juice, breakfast cereals, pancakes, waffles, sausages, sweetened breads, fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, baked beans, muffins, crumpets and toast with butter, margarine, jam or marmalade are common examples of Western breakfast foods.

In America, bacon is most often cured and smoked, and different flavours can be achieved by using a variety of wood, or rarely corn cobs. Sometimes peat is used in the United Kingdom. This process of smoking and curing can take up to eighteen hours, depending on the intensity of the flavour desired. The Virginia Housewife, possibly one of the earliest American cookbooks, gives no indication that bacon is ever not smoked, though it gives no advice on flavouring. American bacons include varieties that can be smoked with hickory or corncobs and flavourings such as maple, brown sugar, honey, molasses, and occasionally cinnamon.
