The excitement of Christmas morning at my house often begins before the sun rises, so I don’t even bother to try to get the kids to eat breakfast before we begin opening gifts. That’s not gonna happen.
It takes a while before they begin to ask about food, so I’ve learned over the years to bake a breakfast casserole while the morning festivities take place. As the aroma begins to waft its way from the oven to the family room, their bellies begin to rumble. By the time it’s done baking, their appetites are whetted and ready.
And what a casserole it is! With hot and steamy tater tots, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs and melted cheese, this Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole makes a hearty, satisfying start to the day.
