  1. I made this for a work breakfast and got rave reviews. I did add onions and just layered everything instead of mixing to save time since I was making several pans. Also cheated and used the store bought chopped up bacon. I am sure it would be more “cracked out” with freshly fried but since I was making several pans I went for the quick answer.
    Delicious.

    1. My family loved this dish.. during the holy month of Ramadan the breakfast should be prepared and eaten before the sun rises..so I prepared this delightful dish the night before ..I put it in The oven (set my alarm for 50 minutes) went back to sleep.. feeding my family was a lot easier that morning.. thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe.. I used beef sausage instead of bacon.. it was great,,

  2. So I've made this 3 times now. Delish! My husband and 3 boys love it and have requested it several times. Ironically, I've never made it for breakfast. It's great for those nights you want breakfast for supper.

  3. Same question as "Unknown" has from 10/15/16 . . . do you defrost and/or cook the tater tots before putting them in casserole dish?
