Tater Tots for Breakfast? Wait ’till the Kids See this One!

This recipe has been a huge success over at Plain Chicken! It has received lots of comments from lovely readers. Let’s have a look at what they’ve said about it:


My boyfriend and I have tried this twice now. The second time we used 10 eggs and 1 cup of milk because the cooking time was longer than expected the first time we followed the recipe by the book. We also layer it the second time around. It’s cooking in the oven now and smells delicious!


I made this tonight. I had to cook it 10 minutes longer because the eggs were still runny. Next time I think I will add bell peppers. For just two of us we halved the recipe. We enjoyed it very much!!!



  • 2 lb hot breakfast sausage
  • 1 (30-32oz) bag frozen tater tots
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk




Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook sausage until no longer pink. Drain fat.

Toss together tater tots, cooked sausage and cheeses in a bowl. Pour into a lightly greased 9×13-inch pan.

Whisk together eggs, milk and seasonings. Pour over tater tot mixture.

**Cover and refrigerate at this point if baking later.**

Bake for 40 – 50 minutes, or until eggs are set.





Quick Tip: Add some of your favorite vegetables to make the dish lighter and even more delicious!
