Breakfast

Tater Tot Egg Bake

Now this recipe is a great one for breakfast or brunch but we are making it for dinner

This is a great way to combine the breakfast for dinner idea with the ease of a one dish casserole

Best part is once you have the basic idea from this recipe you can tweak it anyway you like to suit your families tastes

Lets start off with some tater tots

I poured enough into a standard Pyrex baking dish to get a feel for how much I needed

This came out to four cups of tots

Preheat your oven to 425 F and lay the tots on a sheet pan and spread them out so they cook quicker

Cook 12-15 minutes

Then flip and cook another 10 or until they are golden brown and crispy

Remove from the oven and set aside

While the tots are cooking I’m going to place an 8 ounce ham steak in a hot pan over medium high heat and cook for 3-4 minutes

Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes then remove from the heat and set aside

Next we will need 12 eggs, 1/2 cup of heavy cream (or milk), 8 ounces of cheddar cheese, 3 scallions, 3 ounces of sundried tomatoes, 1 teaspoon each of kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder

The sundried tomatoes are optional

I like them for their taste and the color they add but if your kids aren’t a fan go ahead and leave them out

Whisk everyone together

Chop the scallions and tomatoes

Add in the tater tots in a single layer and press down gently with the palm of your hands to form a crust
