Tater Tot Skillet Breakfast Casserole

We do breakfast for dinner or “brinner” at least one per week at our house because it’s generally inexpensive and kid-friendly. Also, we have chickens, so for a good part of the year we have a good supply of fresh eggs.

I came up with this recipe for dinner one night and it was a huge hit. I really love making one dish meals because as a busy mom of four, it makes it easier for me to put together and not have to fuss with lots of different dishes.

  1. What a great meal idea! I just prepared this for our family's lunch today, and it was a huge hit with everybody. I have nine children between the ages of 19 and 2, so I cheer whenever I stumble upon something that gets no complaints. šŸ˜€ I didn't have any tater tots, so I just used plain frozen diced potatoes and baked it a bit longer. It turned out fantastic. I'll be adding this recipe to our regular rotation for sure!
