Breakfast is an area of epic failure for me as a homemaker. My hard working husband is up way early and headed to work just as I'm getting up Through the years my sons have learned that breakfast can be quick and easy (if they want any!). On a good morning, I can whip up a bowl of oatmeal or some fabulous cinnamon toast! But it's nowhere near the grits, eggs and bacon my guys love on the weekends.
So...this week I saw and new recipe and am sharing (to be accountable to do it!) it! It sounds easy and delicious and is made with tater tots, a favorite at my house.
1 lb. ground sausage
1/2 of a 32-oz. bag of tater tots
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 c. milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown sausage in a large skillet, drain fat. Combine sausage, tater tots, and cheese in a large bowl. Pour into a large casserole dish. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and seasonings. Pour over tater tot mixture. Bake for 35-40 minutes. This recipe can easily be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to bake.
I mixed this up the night before. When hubby got up, I popped it in the oven at 4;15 AM (then went back to bed!) He took it out 30 minutes later and it was perfect. I think this a a breakfast I can do more of in the future!!
