Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole is a great hot breakfast for the weekend or on Christmas morning! I make this on most holiday mornings because I can prep it ahead of time and just add a few things in the morning.  Then all you have to do is pop it in the oven. I promise you everyone will love this delicious breakfast casserole and you will not have any leftovers, at least that was the case in my house.

  1. My family loved this Tater Tot breakfast casserole. Super easy to prepare. The only change I made was I used hot sausage instead of regular. It’s definitely one of our favorites.

  2. If I wanted to make this in individual foil pie tins, what would the cooking time need to be adjusted to? This looks great. Thank you!

  3. Made it but 1/2 recipe and added red bell pepper & onion to the sausage and sliced green onion on top of the tots & cheese

    My family likes to scoop this onto flour tortillas, add some salsa, and roll them up like a burrito. I often make a pan, roll the taquitos up, wrap well in plastic wrap and freeze. My grandchildren then have a breakfast they only have to pop in the microwave in the mornings. The casserole make several depending on how full you stuff each taquitos.

    Love this especially since I can make it gluten free with the right tater tots I add a small can of green chiles to it and use sweet Italian sausage..Thanks for the yummy recipe!

  6. I just made this yesterday for a Christmas morning breakfast/brunch dish. Super easy to throw together! I also added diced bell peppers and onions to the sausage layer for extra color and vitamins! I also used a cast iron skillet to brown the meat and just assembled and baked the whole thing in the same skillet. It came out perfectly and only one pan needed to be cleaned!
