Nothing says brunch like an egg bake! There are many ways to make an egg bake, some with bread others with hash browns…this one is made with tater tots. Yes, tater tots and it’s delicious!
I treat the tater tots just like the hash browns in an egg bake recipe. I let them thaw, and pat them dry to avoid a mushy egg bake. Another key to remember, drain your sausage! So, on with the recipe.
1-16 oz. tube of Jimmy Dean sausage. I used the regular pork sausage, but you can use whichever sausage works for you and your taste buds.
1/2 c. milk
32 oz. tater tots
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven at 350 degrees. Brown your breakfast sausage in a pan. Drain and set the sausage aside. Spray a 13 x 9 inch pan with some non-stick spray. Place the tater tots at the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with some of the cheddar cheese, about a quarter of the cheese. Layer the browned sausage over the cheese sprinkled tater tots.
Beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage. Finish the top of the egg bake by sprinkling the remaining cheese.
Bake uncovered for 1 hour. Enjoy!!
