I love making breakfast casseroles on the weekend for a nice brunch. My tater tot breakfast casserole is a simple dish the whole family can enjoy, I mean who doesn’t love tater tots! It takes little time to prepare and has basic ingredients to keep things easy. Great for meal prep and freezes well. Makes 6 servings at 7-9PP depending on your 0PP foods.

Ingredients used

  • Ground turkey
  • Thyme
  • Sage
  • Onion salt
  • Garlic salt
  • Fennel seeds
  • Oregano
  • Salt & pepper
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Paprika
  • Shredded cheese
  • Tater tots
  • Bacon crumble
  • Green onion

Tips and suggestions…

Feel free to add in some diced veggies, peppers, onion, mushrooms.

Any milk can be substituted for dairy concerns.

I used cheddar cheese, any kind of shredded cheese will work well in this dish.

I used the package of real bacon crumble, if you are in the U.S you can use the center cut bacon, cooked and crumbled.

Use the tater tots as a guide for the serving sizes, each serving will have 8 tater tots in it.

Leftovers will be good in the fridge for a few days, this dish will freeze well in an air-tight container. To reheat I suggest using the air fryer or oven.

  1. This looks so good, adding it to my meal plan for next week! I think Iโ€™ll use extra lean ground turkey breast just to reduce the calories/up the protein a bit. I think Iโ€™ll add a diced red bell pepper too. Canโ€™t wait, thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Sara, sounds delicious! I hope you enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Just wanted to circle back and say that I made this today and it was delicious!! Already planning on making it again next week ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I make this usually on the weekends. It’s a great hearty breakfast. I always buy lean ground turkey from Costco and make it into Italian crumbles and freeze it and use it as needed, making recipes quicker and easier. Thumbs up for this recipe! Thanks Kate!
