Easy Tortilla Breakfast Pie

Raven Higheagle


No need for this easy Tortilla Breakfast Pie to only be served as breakfast ! Serve at dinner time, with either a vegetable side or a crunchy salad.

I love this recipe, as the crust is already done --- in the shape of Tortillas which are layered over and around the inside of the pie dish. Half the work of a traditional pie already done.

This is a huge pie and is enough for at least 6 servings, but served together with a side or a salad, it can be stretched easily to 8 - 10 portions. Depending on your family's ages and usual portions of course.
