A bacon and tater tot casserole. I mean…how could you not love this?!?!
I wanted to bring an egg based breakfast casserole to church and as I was reaching for hash browns at the grocery store, I saw the tater tots looking back at me and well…a better idea was born.
This recipe serves about eight.
1 (32 oz) package of frozen tater tots
10 pieces of thick cut bacon (uncooked), chopped
8 chopped green onions
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
salt and pepper
You do not cook your bacon before assembling this recipe. Just chop up your raw bacon and stir it in with the rest of your ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9×13 baking pan (I used Pam).
Spread your frozen tater tots down across your baking pan. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together your eggs. Stir in the bacon pieces, onions, cheeses and a big pinch of salt and pepper.
Pour mixture down over the tater tots.
Bake uncovered about 35 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
Remove from oven and serve immediately.
Serve this hearty breakfast on a cool morning and your family will be gobble it up!
