1 (32-oz.) package of tater tots
2 (9-oz.) packages of breakfast sausage links
1/2 c. milk
12 large eggs

HOW TO MAKE TATER TOT BREAKFAST CASSEROLE
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees. Using nonstick cooking spray, grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and set aside.
Step 2: In a skillet, cook the sausage until completely cooked. Transfer the sausage to a paper towel-lined plate, then drain all the grease from the skillet. Into half-inch pieces, slice the sausage.
Step 3: In the same skillet, cook the bacon until brown and crispy. Then, drain on a paper towel-lined plate before crumbling.
Step 4: In the prepared baking dish, arrange the tater tots in a single layer.
Step 5: Mix the eggs, milk, 1/4 cup of green onions, salt, and pepper. Add the cooked sausage and half of the bacon. Stir well. Then, fold in a cup each of Monterey jack cheese and cheddar cheese. Over the tater tots, pour the egg mixture.
Step 6: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until the egg mixture is set.
Step 7: On top, evenly sprinkle the rest of the 1 c cheddar cheese. Return the casserole to the oven and resume baking for another 5 to 7 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Step 8: Remove from the oven when done and let the casserole stand for about 10 minutes before slicing.
Step 9: Serve with sprinkles of the remaining crumbled bacon and green onions. Enjoy!
Into the baking dish, you can throw in the tater tots straight from the freezer.
Make sure to avoid overbaking the casserole.
Let the casserole rest before slicing and serving.
