I love a good breakfast casserole. I love to have them for breakfast or for dinner.

Today, I’m sharing an easy tater tot breakfast casserole. One of our favorite breakfast recipes! I love the use of the tater tots in this instead of shredded or cubed hash browns. It gives you pockets of potatoes throughout the dish surrounded by eggs.

Start with a 9 x 13 baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Add frozen tater tots in a single layer on the bottom of the baking dish.

Cook and crumble bacon, then sprinkle it over the tater tots. However, you could always swap it out for cooked sausage or diced ham if you would like. Or you could even use a combination of any of those three.

The egg mixture used in this is pretty basic. A dozen eggs are accompanied by shredded cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Pour the mixture over the tater tots and bacon. Then, the whole thing gets a sprinkling of more cheese on top.

Next, the tater tot breakfast casserole bakes in the oven. Bake it at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes until the eggs are set. You don’t want them jiggly.

Then, you could always sprinkle a little a green onion on each serving if you’d like as a garnish. Serve it with some fresh fruit or toast for a great filling breakfast!

Can this casserole be made ahead of time?
Yes, you can assemble the casserole ahead and refrigerate overnight before baking.

How should leftovers be stored?
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and reheat in the oven or microwave.

How do I safely handle eggs?
To handle eggs safely, wash your hands before and after touching them. Keep eggs in the fridge. Cook eggs until both the white and yolk are firm. Do not eat raw eggs to reduce the risk of getting sick from food.
