One of my favorite things to do is cook a big breakfast, sit around the table and enjoy family time. As the years go by, our breakfast time gets later and later, that happens with teenagers, you know. So lately, our big breakfast time has been mostly on a holiday. And since treasuring the time I have with the boys is important, I often seem to whip up something easy so I can spend more time with them. This Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole was perfect! It doesn’t take a lot of time to put together, it can be made ahead and ready to put into the oven, and of course, it was delicious!

I have made a Breakfast Casserole with hash browns several times before, but this is the first time I tried it with tater tots, and it received rave reviews from the boys.

The other new ingredient, that I haven’t used before in a casserole is the Canadian Bacon. You can also use sausage or bacon.
