Christmas Breakfast Casserole

by Jodi Shaw

My favorite thing Christmas morning is making breakfast. As a kid growing up, I couldn’t wait for my dad to crack out the bacon and eggs. Yum! I’m an adult now and even though dad isn’t at my house to make me breakfast, I still consider it a tradition. That’s why I make a Christmas Breakfast Casserole that even the kids will love.

The Breakfast Casserole is so easy to make and so yummy you will want to eat it every day of the week.  It’s super cheesy and there are always lots of leftovers. You can add your own ingredients to it or take away things you don’t like. Either way, this family breakfast is one I’m sure that will become a tradition in your home as it is in ours.

  6. Bake the dish at 425 degrees for 45 minutes or until tater tots are golden brown

Recipe Notes

You 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.
