HOW TO MAKE TATER TOT SAUSAGE BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F. And using cooking spray, lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch pan.

Step 2: Cook the sausage in a large skillet until no longer pink. When done, drain the fat.

Step 3: Place the tater tots, cooked sausage, and cheeses in a large bowl. Toss well, then transfer into the prepared pan.

Step 4: In a bowl, whisk the eggs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and milk until well combined. Pour this over the tater tot mixture. If baking later, cover the casserole and place it in the fridge. If serving right away, place in the preheated oven and bake for about 60 to 70 minutes, uncovered, until the eggs are set.

Notes:

1. You can prep this casserole ahead of time and just store it in the fridge or freeze it.

2. To bake this casserole after refrigerating, add a couple of minutes to the cooking time.

3. Thaw the casserole completely when frozen, then, bake as instructed.

4. To reheat, make sure to thaw completely before covering with aluminium foil and baking for about 30 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees F oven until heated through.
