Most mornings my breakfast consists of a bowl of cereal and a cup of tea. So a hot breakfast is always a treat for me. I rarely make it for myself, but when I have a breakfast meeting or potluck, I love to make a breakfast casserole. Who am I kiding? I love all casseroles especially this Sausage, Egg and Biscuit Breakfast Casserole. Today, I decided to try a Tater Tot Casserole. Tater tots, eggs, cheese…what’s not to love?

You will be baking this easy breakfast casserole in a 9 x 13 casserole dish. My favorite casserole dish is this one by Anchor Hocking. I love it because it comes with a carrier so I can easily bring my breakfast casserole to gatherings or meetings.
Tater Tot Casserole
This dish starts with browned sausage that is cut and spread into a greased casserole dish.
Next, you’ll mix the milk, eggs, salt and pepper in a large bowl and pour over the sausage in the casserole dish.
Next, add your cheese. If you will be serving this the next morning like I did, cover and refrigerate at this point. You will be performing the next steps in the morning.
Spread the tater tots on top of the cheese.
Add the remainder of the cheese on top and bake.
This tater tot casserole did not last long at my breakfast meeting. I was lucky to snatch up a piece and it was SO good. I will be making this again soon!
