This Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole combines my love for tater tots and make-ahead breakfast casseroles! It is filled with eggs, cheese, and ham for a hearty breakfast casserole that will feed a crowd!
To use up the leftover Cranberry Glazed Ham, I wanted to make a tater tot breakfast casserole that would be great for the holiday season. I have made an egg casserole with tater tots before, and I really loved how it turned out! It turns out the combination of eggs cheese and tater tots is a stellar one.
The great thing about this ham breakfast casserole is that it can be prepped the night before. This means the morning of, you simply have to put it in the oven and bake it – so simple! The actual process of prepping it is also incredibly easy, which I’ll talk about later! First, let’s talk about the ingredients you’ll need.
Frozen tater tots
Salt & pepper
All of these ingredients are easy to find – especially if you’re using up leftover ham! If not, you could definitely use ham deli meat or a ham steak and just chop it up. In addition, if you’re not a fan of ham, you can definitely use bacon or sausage instead.
This ham tater tot breakfast casserole recipe truly is as easy as they come! You’ll start by greasing a 9×13″ baking dish and spreading out the frozen tater tots along the bottom. Then you’ll sprinkle it with the diced ham and shredded cheese.
After whisking together the eggs, milk, sour cream, spices, salt, and pepper, you’ll pour it over the dish and it’s ready to go! At this point you can cover it and refrigerate it, to bake it in the morning, or bake it immediately.
This breakfast casserole can be topped with chopped parsley, green onions, or both! This would be a great breakfast main dish to serve to a large crowd – especially during the holidays!
