Looking for easy Easter Brunch ideas? Breakfast Tater Tot Casserole is quick, easy, and uses only a few simple ingredients for a one pot dish.
Easter is right around the corner and if you’re like me you are planning your brunch ideas and thinking about a menu. This Breakfast Tater Tot Casserole is perfect! It’s so simple to make with ingredients you probably already have on hand and is beyond delicious!
Are you like me and only cook in cast iron? In our kitchen we mostly use Lodge’s 10-inch and 12-inch cast iron skillet. But I love their 17-inch one for pizza. Check out my homemade Cast Iron Pizza recipe. Oh my goodness! If you’ve never made pizza or a pie in a cast iron skillet, you simply must try!
For the breakfast casserole, just brown the sweet sausage or spice it up with some hot sausage. Then place the browned sausage in the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish.
Layer the browned sausage in the bottom of the casserole dish. This is one of my new favorite baking casserole dish that Lodge makes. Order yourself one soon and you’ll be making all sorts of great dishes in it! Buy it on Amazon.
Then sprinkle with shredded cheese, using whatever flavor you prefer. You’re welcome to even add some sauteed bell peppers and yellow onions, or spread a layer of pimento cheese on top. Oh, that would be delicious!
Then top with frozen tater tots. Bake for about 35 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F oven and then top with a little more cheese. Bake a few minutes more just to melt it and Viola! Top with some bacon and you’re ready to enjoy!
