Tater Tots Breakfast Casserole

Oh yes I did, and before you give me that look, let me just tell you that tater tots are basically hash browns and are therefore a perfectly acceptable breakfast food. So lower that eyebrow, you.

Besides, this is only one store-bought potato product away from being a perfectly respectable Spanish tortilla. It has all the trappings of a lovely frittata: peppers, mushrooms, onions, eggs; heck, it’s really no different than anything you’d see on a fine brunch menu. I just sauteed the vegetables in a cast iron skillet greased with a little bacon fat, dumped in the cooked tots and three or four beaten eggs, and then whacked the whole thing in the oven for fifteen or so minutes, and then I had the most satisfying brunch, with a slice of toasted rye and some good coffee.

It’s the tater tots, isn’t it. That’s what’s so hard to accept. Well, suit yourself. More for me.
