Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole is a great hot breakfast meal for the weekend or on Christmas morning! I like to make this on most holiday mornings because I can prep it ahead of time the night before and just add a few things in the morning, then 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.
Tater tots, eggs, sausage, cheese ... what's not to love about this casserole! This Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole recipe is even great for a weeknight brinner. What's brinner you are wondering, it's when you have breakfast for dinner and we love to do that in our family. Be sure to try this casserole for Christmas morning, you will not be disappointed!
