Christmas Day came and went and this year we decided to do a brunch for family. The thought of serving seven people bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, toast and standing in front of the stove to make it all wasn’t something I really wanted to do. So I hopped online and found this amazing Breakfast Casserole and decided to try it out using my own variation.
This breakfast recipe is so super easy and cheesy, the kids will love it. We had tons of leftovers and after devouring it, I can see me making this again but for supper even. There are so many different ways you can do this and add in or take out different ingredients to truly make it your own.
- 2 bags of frozen tater tots
- 2 bags of shredded cheese
- 2 lbs ground beef
- onion powder
- 2 eggs
- bacon bits
brown hamburger and strain the grease
add hamburger to the bottom of a casserole dish
top the hamburger with 1 pack of shredded cheese
whip up 2 eggs with a little milk (not too much milk) pour it over top of the hamburger and cheese
take frozen tater tots and line them up across the dish side by side until the entire dish is covered
Bake the dish at 425 degrees for 45 minutes or until tater tots are golden brown
Take it out of the oven and open the second bag cheese and sprinkle the entire bag on top of the tater tots along with the bacon bits mixed in.
Put it back in the over and bake for another 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Recipe NotesYou can replace ground beef with ground turkey, chicken, breakfast sausage or whatever type of meat you want. You can add vegetables, green peppers or red ones, whatever you like.
Line the casserole dish with parchment paper so the ground beef doesn't burn to the bottom of the dish.
