Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole - The Southern Lady Cooks

Tater tot breakfast casserole is a dish that comes together so easily and is full of flavor. My family loves potatoes, so of course, we’re huge fans of the tater tot. They are a very versatile ingredient. Great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.


  • Tater Tots
  • Smoked Sausage
  • Campbell’s Cheese Soup
  • Milk
  • Chopped Onion
  • Chopped Green Pepper
  • Minced Garlic
  • Eggs
  • Black Pepper
  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • Colby Jack Cheese



What’s fabulous about a casserole is you don’t need to prepare a ton of side dishes. This is a savory dish, so you could easily serve a side of fruit or this fruit salad. It would also be wonderful with these whipping cream biscuits or old-fashioned sweet bread. These orange-blueberry muffins would also be great, too!

  • If you have leftovers, this dish will keep covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
  • I’ve never frozen this dish, but I’m sure it would freeze fine. Just bake the dish and then freeze it.
