This tater tot breakfast casserole is the perfect breakfast that can be made quickly on a busy morning or a weekend of enjoying a stress-free morning. This casserole is loaded with tater tots, sausage, cheese and eggs.
You all know I love quick and easy recipes! Our weekends are so busy with soccer and church that I have to be quick making breakfast. I love making casseroles like sausage & egg casserole or this crescent roll casserole that you stick in the oven and do other things while you wait for it to bake!
This quick and easy casserole is the best tater tot casserole recipe with cheddar cheese and sausage and has quickly become a family favorite.
I was able to make this recipe so quickly because I had frozen tater tots in my freezer. You literally bake this casserole with the tots frozen, which is so time-saving and doesn’t require a lot of planning ahead of time!
Another reason I love this casserole so much is because it does not use a can of cream of mushroom soup, something I don’t always have on hand in the pantry. This recipe uses kitchen staples like eggs, milk and seasonings!
