  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Arrange Tater Tots® in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until potato nuggets are partially cooked, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven.
  4. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.
  5. While the potatoes bake, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage, onion, chili powder, basil, and garlic in the hot skillet until sausage is browned and crumbly and onion is soft, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  6. Whisk eggs and cream together in a bowl until evenly blended; season with pepper.
  7. Arrange partially-cooked potato nuggets in the prepared casserole dish; sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Spread sausage mixture over cheese layer. Pour egg mixture over sausage layer.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until set in the middle and lightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This is super easy and tastes great! Modifications I made to take to work: omit chili powder and pepper, use Turkey Breakfast Sausage, reserve 1/2 C cheese for top. Co-workers LOVED it!!

Wow, this is an awesome recipe! Brought it in for a work potluck and not only was it inhaled, 4 people immediately asked for the recipe. I pretty much followed the recipe as written except i u...

Well this is the second tune within 6 days that I've made this recipe upon my children and husband's enthusiastic requests so I'd. Say its a keeper. I followed recipe except I added a cup more c...

I use sage sausage and omit the basil and chili powder. So amazing!

This gets 5 stars from me since I don't even care for sausage and I went back for me! I prepped it a day ahead of time and kept in the frig. I forgot to include the onion/spices when I browned...

I tweaked the recipe a bit since I don't care for sausage and for convenience- now this has been the top requested food item at family gatherings the last three times we've gathered! So, instea...

This is a 4 as written, but a 10 when cooked like "Cheesy Oven Scramble." I crave breakfast egg casseroles... but like my omelets, I want them soft and not overcooked or dry. HERE IT IS!! Pre...

I used crispy, center-cut bacon crumbles instead of sausage and baked the (coated with my favorite seasoning salt) tater tots almost all the way through before assembling. I really liked this di...
