This Ham and Tater Tot Casserole is great for any meal and easy to make. We like it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love finding ways to use up leftover ham and this is a good one. This recipe could be doubled and baked in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Can be reheated in the oven or microwave. All kids love any tater tot casserole!

4 cups cooked chopped ham
4 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, (optional)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (can use whatever you like)
1/2 cup chopped green onions or regular onions
tater tots (about 1/2 of a 32 ounce bag or enough to cover top of dish)

Spray a 9 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread the ham in the bottom of the dish. Whisk together the eggs, milk, garlic powder, black pepper and salt. Pour over the ham. Sprinkle on the cheese and green onions. Layer the tater tots on top. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 35 minutes or until tater tots are brown. Can sprinkle extra cheese on top the last five minutes of cooking if you so desire. Makes about six servings. I know your family will enjoy this tater tot casserole!

  1. I made it for my husband tonight. He loved it! I left out the garlic powder. I did bake it for 15 minutes longer, to make it more crispy. DELICIOUS and EASY!

      I would add something green, Jackie, like brussels sprouts, green beans, asparagus, peas, etc. Just type in the name of the vegetable in our search box and you should get some recipes for those dishes.
