  • 48 Tater Tots , frozen
  • 6 Eggs , large
  • 8 oz Ground sausage
  • 4 oz Cream cheese
  • 4 oz Cheddar cheese , shredded


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Brown sausage in a skillet over medium high heat. Once meat has browned drain the grease then add sausage and cream cheese back to the skillet and cook until fully combined. Set aside.
  • In a skillet scramble the eggs and set aside.
  • Grease a mini muffin pan and place three tater tots in each cup. Bake for 10 minutes.

  • Place the tater tots back in the oven and cook for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove the breakfast tots from the oven and sprinkle with a little cheddar cheese then return to the oven for another 2-3 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  • Remove breakfast tots from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the muffin pan.
  • Enjoy!
