Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole Ingredients:

How To Make tater tot casserole for breakfast

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Slice and dice your bacon to the doneness you like in a pan. I leave my bacon not fully cooked since it will also cook a smidge more in the oven.

In another large skillet, cook your sausageuntil it is cooked thoroughly, and drain the fat. If you have not checked out Thyme and Table at Walmart, you should; the pans are fantastic!

Spray a casserole pan with a nonstick spray. My mom is all about her metal pans, but I am all about the Pyrex glass pans! The lids on these store leftovers so well, and I don’t have to move them to other containers.

You can also cook this in a Pioneer Woman Baking Dishes; this recipe is similar to the pioneer woman tater tot casserole.

Combine your tater tots, bacon, cooked sausage, and cheese in a large bowl.

Whisk eggs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and milk using a separate bowl. I use my large Pyrex measuring cups for this.

How to store breakfast tater tots casserole

Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. You can freeze this dish before or after cooking for up to 3 months in an air-tight container.

Storing leftovers properly requires the right tools! My preferred storage method is if the leftovers can be sealed in a food saver. If not, then an air-tight container or Ziploc bag for the fridge is the way I go. The air-tight container and a freezer Ziploc bag are the next best bet for freezing the leftovers. I also use a food scale to measure portions into serving sizes.
