Pour it over the enchiladas, cover the baking dish with foil, and place in the fridge for at least two hours or overnight. When ready to cook, preheat the oven. Bake (covered) for 25-30 minutes or until the eggs have set. Sprinkle some more cheese over the top.

The egg completely soaks into the tortillas as it cooks, so you if you cut each enchilada in half you can actually pick it up and hold it your hand – sort of like a Hot Pocket or similar! It does get a little messy but tastes SO good with all that melted cheese and delicious ham!

This is also a great dish to make at the weekend and enjoy the leftovers during the week! Just grab an enchilada and reheat it in the microwave for a minute or two. So easy and convenient!
