Breakfast Tater Tot Casserole

  • 2 tsp. cooking fat of your choice
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 bunch scallions, diced
  • 2 ½ c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ lb. fully cooked ham, chopped
  • 7 oz. precooked sausage links, chopped
  • 32 oz. frozen tater tots
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 ½ c. whole milk
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish or 9-inch deep casserole round with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat the cooking fat of your choice over medium-high heat. Sauté the diced onion for 5 minutes or so until the onions are translucent.

Once cooked, add the onions and any grease to a large mixing bowl. Stir in the peppers, scallions, 2 cups of the cheese, chopped ham and sausage, and tater tots and mix everything together.

Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, ground black pepper, garlic powder, and salt. Pour the mixture over the top of the tater tot mixture.

Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes; remove the casserole from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup of shredded cheese and bake for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
