Breakfast Casserole

Forget hash browns, this is even better!

We love traditional breakfasts with eggs, crispy bacon and of course hash browns. Those crispy potatoes are the perfect side to our breakfast proteins. But for fun, we decided to change up the hash brown routine and try something a little different, but equally as delicious: tater tots! We made a breakfast casserole with eggs, bacon, and our favorite bite-sized potato side, and the end result was sheer deliciousness.

Whisk up eggs with a little milk, add chopped bacon, of course a little cheese and onion for flavor, pour everything over tater tots and bake. What emerges from the oven is breakfast dish that everyone will love! Bite sized bits of bacon, warm tater tots, and creamy eggs are perfect for a weekend brunch. After all, who can resist a tater tot?!?
