Sausage and Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

I think I’ve mentioned before that hubbyman loves a hearty breakfast on the weekends.  This is one of those hearty dishes that he loves…and it’s super easy to throw together and let bake while everyone gets ready for the day.  It’s great for Sunday’s when everyone is rushed to get ready and out the door, but you still want a good breakfast!

Last weekend, I decided to have my parents and family over for holiday brunch to meet our new puppy, Kirby, and see the kids.  Yes, the pug puppy was the major draw for the breakfast. LOL!  He is really cute!  But it was really nice to get together for a relaxing brunch before the crazy holiday season starts.

If you need this to go together super fast, cook up the sausage the night before or use leftover sausage from a previous breakfast.  Otherwise, that’s the hardest part of this meal….I’m telling you, it’s so easy.  Just throw it all in the pan and bake!

Johnsonville and Ore-Ida were so nice to send me a bunch of goodies and coupons to use for the breakfast and they gave me a set to giveaway.  My mom won my door prize  and she was thrilled…she said she never wins anything!

Everyone loved the casserole and the sausage stuffed pancakes I made…if you’re nice to me, maybe I will share that recipe soon along with the homemade strawberry syrup I made!  Heaven!  If you need more inspiration before I get that stuffed pancake recipe up, check out the Sunrise Casserole and Amazing Muffin Cups from Johnsonville.

  1. Trying this now!!! Instead we used breakfast sausage and replaced onion powder for the onions since family likes the taste but not the texture. We’ll see how it turns out! Thanks for sharing

  2. We’ve made hamburger tator tot cassarole for dinner but this looks delicious for breakfast. Don’t know why we didn’t think of that. lol – thank you – gonna try this!!!

  3. Looks like a bunch of fun to start a day. As I imagine the slicing of it, my mouth starts to rave for it. Mentioned milk, what kind – evap or condense? I always have fun eating together with family. There will never be a dull moment, relating stories from here to there. LOL
