Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Arrange potato nuggets in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until potato nuggets are partially cooked, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven.
  4. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.
  5. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage, onion, chili powder, basil, and garlic in the hot skillet until sausage is browned and crumbly and onion is soft, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  6. Whisk eggs and cream together in a bowl until evenly blended; season with pepper.
  7. Arrange partially-cooked potato nuggets in the prepared casserole dish; sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Spread sausage mixture over cheese layer. Pour egg mixture over sausage layer.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until set in the middle and lightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

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!!

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 pretty good. I put the tots in microwave for 5 min. first. Otherwise, followed recipe.

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.
