Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

I have been making tater tot casserole for my family for dinner as long as I can remember. I don't know when the recipe gained popularity, but it was probably around the time tater tots were invented! I know the recipe has been around for a long time.

I recently stumbled across a recipe for a breakfast variation of the recipe, and it's pretty great! It tastes similar to a traditional hashbrown breakfast casserole, with more of the flavor of tater tots than hashbrowns.
