3. Breakfast Enchiladas

"A hearty breakfast dish that includes hashbrowns, cheese, ham and diced green chilies rolled into flour tortillas," says MAMASPICE. Several reviewers added scrambled eggs and/or cooked sausage to the mix and loved them that way, too. Watch the video to see how to make them.

4. Eggs Benedict Breakfast Pizza

Scrambled eggs, ham, cheese, and hollandaise sauce are baked on a crescent roll pizza crust for a quick and satisfying dinner. Home cook zonasun says, "This dish is delish! Only thing I would do different is to pre-bake the crust a bit before loading all the goodies on top. The edges were cooked but center was still a bit underdone."
