Tasty Tater-Tot Breakfast Casserole

I don’t have too much to say about this new breakfast addition in our household other than that I have made it the last 3 weekends in a row and I think that says enough!

It is great for a brunch, a snowy morning or for when you have company. It certainly isn’t the healthiest of breakfasts so I like to serve it alongside some fresh fruit to lighten it up. But it’s tater tots for breakfast! And after all, who doesn’t love tater tots? It’s a guaranteed hit for breakfast lovers of all ages.

It is so easy, fun and completely customizable to your taste! To give you some ideas, so far I have made:

    • Sausage, mushroom, onion and fontina cheese
    • Ham, mushroom and swiss cheese
    • Spinach, mushroom, onion and cheddar cheese

This recipe serves 6 people.

Ingredients

3 cups cooked tater tots
1/2 -3/4 cup shredded cheese of choice
5 breakfast sausage links- cooked and sliced or diced.
Half of a large white onion, sliced and sautéed.
8 or 9 large eggs- beaten
1/2 cup heavy cream (optional, but it helps it fluff.)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)
salt & pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 pyrex dish.

Toss the cooked tater tots with a pinch of salt & pepper for seasoning. Spread them out out on the bottom of the dish and lightly press them with the back of a spatula.

Mix the heavy cream into the beaten eggs. Season well with Salt & pepper. Mix in half of the shredded cheese, the sausage & onions and pour mixture over the tater tots.

Top with the remaining cheese and parsley. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until cooked through.
