Cheesy Tater Tot Sausage and Bacon Casserole #Recipe

cheesey-bacon-sausage-breakfast-casseroleTater tots, lots of sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, and sausage–is this anything more tantalizing than these delicious comfort foods? When paired with eggs, milk, onion, and spices these breakfast must-haves turn into one of the most satisfying, and addicting casseroles ever!

Today was the first day I have EVER made a casserole. I wanted to use my latest reviews from both Wayfair, and al fresco chicken sausage in a very clever way. I figured casseroles are a holiday food staple in many households so I wanted to start a new tradition this Christmas season.

sausage-casseroleSince I never made a casserole, let alone a breakfast one, it was a bit of trial and error. I knew I wanted to use both my delicious al fresco chicken sausage links, and some tater tots I recently purchased. We are not too big on eggy type foods so I only used 4 eggs, and milk. This combination worked out so well, and made what I like to call the perfect Cheesy Tater Tot Sausage & Bacon Casserole.


  • 1 32 ounce bag of tater tots
  • 1 8 ounce bag of sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1 package of al fresco country style chicken sausage links
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of whole milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon of hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of chives
  • salt, pepper, onion, and garlic powder to taste
  • 2 medium onions chopped

    I’m planning on making this tonight, but the steps make no sense! There is no order to them. Does it matter what goes in the baking dish first?

      Not really! It is Eggs, then a layer of tater tots, etc! I wish I could edit this post to fix it, but there is a glitch on it. Sorry about that!

    I’m sorry! You pre-cook the Bacon in either the microwave, or pan. Then, once it is cooled you crumble it and either add it with your sausage, or top your cheese with it. Your choice.

    I’m sorry this sounds so good but recipe is very confusing, in the instructions it’s sounding like there is more cheese then you call for…it says 1 8 oz bag of cheese but instructions have what sounds like a total of 16 oz. Just want to make sure I’m reading this right!

    I find the steps are not in order. In the photos, the cheese and bacon are on top. Last photo shows the tater tots on top. Maybe it doesn’t matter
