A few years back I was given one of those special all-in-one pans where you could prepare a whole meal in just one pan. It included a steamer basket, a special lid, and a VHS tape with a stack of recipe cards… My friend most likely purchased it from an infomercial, and I have since pawned it off on someone else during one of my many moves.
One recipe I did enjoy from that unique pan was a breakfast pizza. It had hashbrowns for the base with eggs, cheese and sausage on top. All made in one pan – mind you! Special.
Anyways, the other day I got to thinking about that tasty breakfast and I thought why not make my own Sausage, Egg and Cheese Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole? So I did.
This delicious, savory breakfast casserole is perfect for entertaining a larger crowd for brunch or maybe when family comes to visit? I know I’m planning on remaking this during the summer when we’ll have some visitors for a week.
Here’s a bonus – it can easily be prepared the night before and popped into the oven in the morning for a no hassle breakfast!
This casserole is sort of like a bread pudding, but in a savory fashion.
Cut up a bunch of day-old bread and layer it with sausage and cheese, then pour the whisked eggs over top. Let it sit overnight (or you can use fresh bread and bake right away). I especially love the layering, it means there is plenty of cheese and sausage all throughout and not just on top.
I would serve it with some freshly sliced green onions, a dollop of sour cream, and a few dashes of hot sauce.
It’s a filling breakfast your whole family will love!
We even wrapped some of this casserole up in tortillas the next day for a breakfast casserole taco!
