Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

This is a quick and fun way to enjoy a breakfast at any time of the day.  I found this on Pinterest “Mess for Less” when I was looking for a Friday breakfast idea for my team at work.  You can find the original recipe on by Breakfast Pinterest board.    Note: you can change the amount of ingredients to fit how many people you are feeding.   I did three tins of these two with meat and one vegetarian.


  • 6 eggs
  • 2 packages of 10 oz sausage links
  • 1 lb bacon     IMG_0649
  • 1 cup milk
  • 16 oz Tater tots
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheese (we used a cheddar and jack mix)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Green peppers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Brown sausage or bacon according to package directions and cut into bit sized pieces. Spread cooked and cut sausage or bacon at the bottom of a greased casserole dish.

In a large bowl, beat together milk, eggs, salt and pepper. Cover the sausage in the casserole dish with the egg mixture.  IMG_0648

Sprinkle the cup of cheese on top of the eggs.

If you are serving this the next morning you can cover and refrigerate at this point, and finish the next steps in the morning.  (I only cooked the meat and cut up the green peppers).

Spread 16 oz of tater tots on top of the cheese.

Add the remainder of the cheese on top.

Bake for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees.  Depending on your oven I would check with a toothpick and insert into the center of the casserole to make sure it comes out clean.  If not, cook for a few minutes longer.



Note: I did a lot of the prep work the day before so when the morning came all I had to do was the eggs.  I cooked the sausage, bacon, and cut up green peppers the night before which made this supper easy to make in the morning.
