  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 6 slices bacon chopped
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 ounces diced green chiles
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • 16 ounces frozen tater tots
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • Add the sausage to a skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring often to break up the sausage, until the sausage is cooked through. Drain the grease and spread the sausage in a single layer in the prepared pan.
  • Add the bacon to the skillet and cook until crisp, stirring often. Remove with a slotted spoon and sprinkle over the sausage.
  • Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
  • Add the eggs, milk, chiles, salt, and pepper to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Pour over the casserole.
  • Arrange the tater tots in a single layer over the egg mixture.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until eggs are set.
  • Sprinkle with chives before serving.



Onions and bell peppers make a great addition! Finely dice them and cook with the sausage. 
Tater Tots work great, but we've also used Crispy Crowns here. They're basically the same thing, just shaped a bit differently.
