I'm a stickler for easy, simple comfort food. Not to mention breakfast food !
I actually haven't gotten around to trying this, but maybe we can all try it together and give our reviews ! It sounds delicious, well.. you could put cheese and tater tots on anything and it'd be delicious.
1 pound ground pork breakfast sausage (If you can't find the ground meet, just buy a package of pork breakfast sausage and cut them into 1cm chunks.. make sure it's BREAKFAST sausage, it's leaner, and tastier)
2-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups milk
2 pounds tater tots
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Cook sausage in a skillet until evenly brown, drain the fat. Spread evenly on the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish. You may spray bottom of dish with a cooking oil spray first (Pam) Spread cheese over sausage.
Put tater tots in the oven for 10 minutes.
In a bowl, mix together eggs and milk. Pour over cheese. Top with semi-cooked tater tots. Bake for 35-45 minutes, and cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
Bella's Additions ;
Add green onion, and other vegetables.
Use 'flavored' shredded cheese, like 'tex mex' with the spicier cheeses mixed.
Everything but the tater tots can be made the night before (tatertots will get soggy), so in the morning you just need to warm the tots, throw them in then put the whole thing in the oven.
Use 'egg creations' flavored eggs in the carton.
