This Cheesy Bacon Tater Tot Casserole Is a Breakfast Win

  • I’ve loved tater tots ever since I was a kid—and that’s never stopped. Now I use my kids as an excuse to make them, but it wasn’t until recently that I thought to take those tasty fried potato nuggets to the next level by creating a tater tot casserole.

    See, tater tots are basically hash browns, right? So incorporating them into a breakfast dish with bacon just seemed like a natural next step. This cheesy bacon tater tot casserole bakes up golden-brown and crunchy. It’s a delicious way to start any morning and an easy way to feed a crowd (hello, potlucks!). Plus, you can put your own spin on it by topping your tater tot casserole with eggs or even add some chicken. My family loves breakfast-for-dinner, so I serve this dish with a salad as a comforting weeknight meal.

    Looking for a hearty breakfast bake that’s a breeze to throw together? This cheesy bacon tater tot casserole recipe will satisfy everyone in your family—no matter what time of day you enjoy it. (You can thank me later!)
