I cooked my bacon separately since I am picking about bacon. Such a basic recipe you can add anything you desire. I added green onions and served with homemade salsa, sliced avocados. My whole family enjoyed the meal and I have two picky eaters. Read More

Not happy with the taste of the potatoes. I think this would be good with fresh sauted potatoes replacing the over-processed tater tots. Read More

Some reviews indicated it was a bit bland so I used breakfast sausage instead of bacon and a nacho cheese sauce along with half of the cheddar. guests asked for the recipe! J Read More

I used this recipe to start me out and made some changes. I used vegetarian sausage patties (which I browned first) instead of bacon and I mixed two packets of country gravy mix (omitting the salt and pepper) into the eggs. It cooked up very nicely in the recommended hour and the flavor was wonderful! Read More

I made this at the Fire Station and the guys loved it!!! I made two trays of it. It took 50 min to be perfectly done... One tray I put yellow onion and green chilies and the other I followed the recipe. We topped it with Ranch and salsa, and it was amazing! Read More

Made some changes mostly due to serving size, which turned out to be 4 very large portions. Also just used everything I had in the fridge and pantry. Used 8 eggs instead of 12. Mixed 6 eggs with about 1/3 cup heavy cream, salt, pepper, garlic powder, 1tsp of thai chili sauce, and about 1.5 cups of fine shredded Mexican cheese blend. Cut up 1/2 pound bacon in 1" chunks, sautéed about 10 minutes, cooked but not crispy at all. Threw in some jalapeños, scallion, roasted peppers, spinach, on top of bacon and sautéed another 5 minutes. Sprayed an 8" round casserole, dumped in the tater tots on the bottom. Combined the egg mixture with the meat and veggies and poured on top. Whisked up 2 more eggs and poured on top. Baked about 55 minutes, just until the egg didn't run when I put a fork in the center. Tasted great, definitely not bland. Read More

This was so easy and delish! I made it on Christmas morning. I cooked and diced the bacon the night before, then threw it all together in five minutes. (I didn't know if I could make the whole thing ahead, given that the potatoes are frozen.) I used Crispy Crowns instead of Tater Tots and omitted the milk (by accident), but it was excellent!

Easy to make and was a hit. I made it for a family brunch and there wasn’t any leftovers. I plan on making for Christmas Day too. Side note: why do people write “reviews “ where they really just are writing a new recipe? If you want to submit your own recipes then please do so. Stick to reviewing the actual recipe! Read More

I've made something like this for years. However I cook 1lb of pork or turkey sausage (instead of bacon) then pour in 1 can of cheddar cheese and mix those 2 together, then spread on top of the tater tots, pour the egg/milk mixture on top of that, it is delicious!!!! Read More
