Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

This morning I made a tater tot breakfast casserole. I have been meaning to try one of these for ages. Yum!

I didn't find a recipe that was exactly how i wanted it. I wanted the tots on top so they would get crispy. I looked up other recipes and then changed it up to make it my own.

This is a half recipe...

6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
shredded swiss cheese
shredded cheddar cheese
dry mustard
tater tots

Whip together the eggs and milk. Add salt, pepper and dry mustard. Pour it into a buttered 9 inch square casserole dish. Sprinkle on the cheese. Carefully place tots on top of the cheese. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

I made this one without meat but I think next time I will add sausage or bacon. I am also toying with the idea of added sauted onions to the egg. I want to experiment with the baking time too... it was a little overdone but it also sat in the oven for awhile after baking to keep it warm.


  1. Thanks for posting! I can't wait to try it in my new kitchen!

  2. Maybe some chives or green onion or bell pepper next time? Sounds delicious either way. :D

  3. I would definitely add the onions. I like that you put the tots on top to get crisp. I will definitely try this.

  4. Ooh, sounds yummy, Jenny. I think my kids would like that for breakfast a lot. take care greta

  5. Should the Milk and Eggs mixture consist more of eggs or milk? There isn't a measurement listed and I'm not a tip top cook who could make a guess. Thanks! - caroline

  6. whups - it's supposed to be 1/4 cup milk - I missed that.

  7. Oh now you've done it - this looks so yummy. With lots of room for variations of flavors.

  8. OMG where's my fork!

    I like a meal that is good for you, tastes great and is ready fast!
