Tater Tot Casserole

May 21, 2020 | Acupuncture, Well Packs, Wellness

     If I had to pick one food item that would define my college experience, I would say tater tots. For my roommates and I, tater tots were the center of our culinary world. Ten years later and tater tots are still one of my favorite parts of any meal. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that I developed a few tater tot recipes, including this one my “Famous Tater Tot Casserole”. What makes this recipe so great, besides the tater tots of course, is how you can change the filler ingredients to any combination to match your taste. Make this recipe for any occasion and it will be the hit of the party. 

Ingredients: 

  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • 1 tsp pepper, divided
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup broccoli, chopped into bite sized pieces*
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 1, 32oz bag of tater tots
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

*Broccoli can be replaced with a 1 ½ cups of any vegetable or meat combination you prefer. 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • In a small bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper and set aside
  • In a large bowl whisk together eggs and milk
  • Add broccoli, onion, garlic and cheese to the egg mixture and stir until well combined
  • Mix in tater tots so they are totally coated in the egg mixture
  • Pour tater tot mixture into a 9x13in casserole pan
  • Evenly distribute the bread crumb mixture over he tater tot mixture, and drizzle the top of the bread crumbs with olive oil.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until all the liquid has solidified
  • Enjoy!!
