1 (32 ounce) package
frozen bite-sized potato nuggets (such as Tater Tots®)
heavy whipping cream
ground black pepper, or to taste
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
This is super easy and tastes great! Modifications I made to take to work: omit chili powder and pepper, use Turkey Breakfast Sausage, reserve 1/2 C cheese for top. Co-workers LOVED it!!
Everyone thought it was too dry.
This is such an easy recipe to make, and even tastes great the next day. I used Ore Ida Tator Tot and microwaved them for 5 minutes rather than cooking in the oven, to save a little time. I did add plenty of pepper but other than that followed the recipe exact. It was a kit with my kids, sure I will make this again.
This was great. I used Ore-Ida Tater Tots. And I added some green bell peppers. I layered it a little differently but no big deal :)
This gets 5 stars from me since I don't even care for sausage and I went back for me! I prepped it a day ahead of time and kept in the frig. I forgot to include the onion/spices when I browned the sausage, so I added the onion over the sausage when assembling and mixed 1/2 the spices in the eggs and sprinkled the other 1/2 over the sausage. I left it on the counter while the oven preheated and then baked for 45 minutes. I was a little apprehensive about 2 T and 1 T of spices, but they worked! I couldn't find ground sausage, so I decased a package of Johnsonville Mild Sausage and used that. I can see this finding a place in our breakfast casserole rotations. THANKS for the recipe!
I tweaked the recipe a bit since I don't care for sausage and for convenience- now this has been the top requested food item at family gatherings the last three times we've gathered! So, instead of sausage, I used 1lb. ground turkey and 1 lb. crumbled cooked bacon. I bake the bacon in the oven in a shallow cookie pan on foil. I only add the chili powder (no basil, onion or garlic) to the ground turkey while I am browning it. VERY tasty and huge crowd pleaser! Put out the salsa for those who want top it off! Serve with melon (cantaloupe) cubes and gluten free Danish!
I Have made at least 5 different breakfast casseroles from this site, and they have all been very good, but this is the one that my boys keep on asking for.
