Ahhh, Easter Sunday. Holidays when you're living on your own are a bit challenging particularly when you love cooking and celebrating for holidays as much as I do. But making a huge ham for myself seems a bit silly so instead I'm going to go out for a nice Easter Brunch before the Bruins game and then make a yummy meal for myself that incorporates ham at the very least! These ham & cheese enchiladas are an old family recipe...but totally DIY. Simply roll some pepper-jack cheese & ham slices inside of flour tortillas (with some canned jalapenos if you prefer) and fit them all snuggly into a baking dish. Then make a béchamel sauce (I add a bit of yellow mustard, nutmeg and cheese to mine) and pour it over the top, sprinkle with some cheese and jalapenos, cover with foil and pop them in the oven for about 30 minutes at 350. Easy breezy but oh so delicious.
Then I'll mix it up with one of my favorite dishes, Curried Cauliflower & Chickpea Stew and since I have a dinner party later i the week that about does it for the cooking. Love those leftovers!
As always if you're cooking for more than one or want a bit more variety please visit my menu archives and recipes to find other meals to round out your week. Happy Easter everyone...hope you have a great day!
