Easy Tator Tot Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast casseroles are our go-to dish for making breakfast quickly during the work week.  We also love to make these while we travel, so that we cook once and eat twice!  This is also great to make ahead as it heats up beautifully.  This could really save you some time on special breakfasts like Easter and Christmas morning!

We recently vacationed in Sedona, Arizona.  We made this casserole and enjoyed it for a couple of days.  We save so much money by making our breakfasts.  My husband is the king of breakfast cooking so a restaurant has to compete with his yummy foods.  We typically eat breakfast out once or twice just to give the cook a rest!

  1. Oh how I wish my husband would eat things like this. He just is not a fan of casseroles and especially of breakfast ones. He doesn't like cheese with eggs and he won't eat tater tots. He also won't eat leftovers so making one dish for two meals never happens here.

    1. Oh, man! I wish I could send you a serving!

  2. I guess I will try to make this over the weekend and surprise my husband as he gets back. I hope he would like it.

  3. I love these kinds of casseroles when the kids visit. It is so easy and saves on muss and fuss at the last minute-kids can eat when they want, too. Have a great St. Pat's Sunday- xo Diana
