I come from a large and loud Irish Catholic family. My dad is one of 5, and they all went and had a mess of kids too. I love all my cousins and cherish my memories of growing up so close with them. They all (except for me) went on and had a mess of kids too and now all of them are growing up like us! It is the cutest thing when they all get together. My cousin Casey (who, if you remember, requested the breadcrumbs) came in town for a long weekend and we planned to have a boozy girls brunch. Plans changed as usual when you make them far in advance and we decided to hang out at home with our own food and booze so the kids could play. Since I am the family food blogger, I was to make the main dish.
Last time we got together for brunch I made a yummy quiche. I thought about doing that again but I wanted to try something new. I clicked over to my breakfast board on Pinterest and found this pin that I tagged for my chiorizo loving friend Becca. Why not be fancy and have Brunchiladas!
I went to my new and not better Rouses for all the ingredients. While I was looking for the chorizo and grossing out at how much fat was in it, I noticed one lone package of Patton's hot sausage. I immediately thought that would be a good substitute for the chorizo even though it was probably just as fattening. I love a local product and it was right up my alley. Also I did not like the chipotle enchilada sauce in the original recipe so I made my favorite traditional enchilada sauce from Gimme Some Oven. Full recipe after the montage.
