One of our family’s favorite meals on a Sunday is brunch! Typically, we will enjoy a family brunch together after Sunday service. Some of our favorite brunches happen to be casseroles so I wanted to share one of our top brunch recipes with you all.
If you have not tried this Easy & Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole with Breakfast Sausage you are totally missing out!! Made with fresh Jimmy Dean® Regular Premium Pork Sausage, tater tots, eggs, cheese, milk, and did I mention cheese? Haha! If you cannot tell, we are all about the cheese in this house!! There is something so delicious about enjoying the savory, crispy pieces of the pan-browned Jimmy Dean Regular Premium Pork Sausage Roll enveloped in the melty cheddar. This recipe is super delightful and perfect for Father’s Day which is coming soon!
Of course, you do not need any occasion to enjoy this delicious brunch casserole with your family, but I know my husband loved this Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole with Breakfast Sausage-and so do my 3 kids! My girls LOVE when this pops up on the menu and always request seconds! The reason they love this sausage tater tot casserole so much is because it is made of ALL their favorites baked in one dish!
I love using Jimmy Dean Regular Premium Pork Sausage Roll because it is made with a unique savory blend of Jimmy Dean signature seasonings; fresh, high-quality pork sausage. The roll is super convenient because there is no chopping, or processing necessary. Simply open the roll package, add it to your skillet, and brown. I have been loving my cast iron skillet lately, and find it does such a wonderful job at browning the sausage to perfection! Plus, it gives my food an extra iron boost that I need since I am anemic.

Hello, 9 x 13. Sorry for the delay! -Amy
I make breakfasts good for 5 days to bring to work. I put them in 5 containers & refrigerated them ready for the following day. This is now part of my go-to breakfast recipes. What attracted me to this recipe is, it only requires 4 eggs, not 8-12 which most recipes in Pinterest ask for.
I love to follow directions so I made this to a T. I shared it to my coworker & she loved it! It’s simple & delicious. Just want you to know, I jazzed it up when I made it again. I added sautéed portabello mushrooms in place of the sausage and baked for additional 10 minutes because mushroom have generous water content. It came out delicious again! Thank you!
I’m making it tonight!!!
Hi Amy! I hope it came out delicious!
Can I make it overnite?
Amy Desrosiers says
Yes, you can and bake in the am!
