I made this for a mom's group that I'm a part of and the ladies loved it! There was only about a spoonfull left over. Like others, I used 4 eggs and about 2 1/2 cups of cheese. I also used the smaller crispy crowns tater tots and baked them for about 10 minutes before adding them to the casserole because I noticed other posters said the tots were a little mushy and it seemed to do the trick. This one is a keeper.

Oddly addictive! Used the popular brand sausage substitute and an additional egg (as recommended by previous reviews) it did need salt but it seemed the more I ate the more I liked it. My toddler tore it up! I did have to add a bit of salt and pepper.

Wonderful recipe! I frequently use bring this to company breakfasts. I refrigerate the recipe overnight, and stick it in the oven before work. I usually substitute bacon for sausage, but have also made it meatless! Increasing the eggs to 4 makes a huge difference! If you are cooking it after it has been refrigerated, and are using 4 eggs, increase the temperature to 375, and cook for about 40-50 minutes.

We all loved this! I used Turkey Sausage, egg substitute, skim milk and Crispy Crowns instead. I also baked the Crispy Crowns about halfway first and placed them in the pan crunchy side down. The only complaint was that there were no leftovers! MMMMMMMMMM says it all!

mmm...mmm...mmm..Everyone liked it, even my picky eaters. I used 4 eggs instead of 2, was worried it might come out to runny with only 2. With the 4 eggs, it came out with a quiche like texture. Will definately make again. Think I'm gonna try bacon next time!! thanks for the recipe...its nice to have something new for breakfast!

This recipe is wonderful. Made it several times. It's my granddaughter's favorite. But using 4 eggs and increasing cheese to 3 cups makes it even better. Also increase baking time few more minutes.

I made this for my daughter's slumber party, and all 7 of the girls (11 year olds) loved it and wanted seconds. My husband ate what was left, and loved it so much that is going to the store for more tater tots so we can have this again today!! I also used 3 cups of cheese, and 4 eggs, cooked it at 375 degrees for 40 mins...delicious!!!

I had a small group of women and their babies over for an afternoon, and was looking for an easy casserole to make. I was a little hesitant to make a tater-tot casserole at first...it just didn't seem "adult" enough. And, my husband is very "anti-casserole"...he doesn't like them in general. But, since the ingredients seemed simple, and it WAS, after all, a Moms group, I decided to try it. They LOVED it. Everyone absolutely RAVED about it! I couldn't believe it...and every person, INCLUDING my husband who snuck into the kitchen for the goodies, went back for seconds! I did use 4 eggs and 3 cups of cheese as others had suggested, and it worked out perfectly. I have already given out the recipe to friends, and will use this recipe often myself!
