Eggs, bacon, sausage and tots are the stars of this indulgent and delicious breakfast casserole that’s perfect for Christmas morning or Sunday brunch. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 pound frozen tater tots or hashbrowns
  • 4 frozen fully cooked sausage patties
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar
  • 4 pieces crispy cooked bacon, broken into large pieces

Instructions

Instant Pot Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl beat together the eggs, salt, pepper, milk, thyme, onion powder and garlic powder with a whisk.
  2. In an oven safe dish that fits inside your Instant Pot (I used this one*) add the tater tots in a single layer. Then place the sausage patties on top of the tots. Pour the egg mixture over the top. Then sprinkle the cheese and bacon pieces on top.
  3. Cover the dish with foil. Pour 1 ½ cups of water into bottom of Instant Pot.  Place the dish on top of a trivet with handles. Lower the dish into the bottom of the Instant Pot. 
  4. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 25 minutes. When time is up let the pot sit for 10 minutes and then move the valve to venting. 
  5. Remove the dish and the foil. Scoop onto plates and enjoy.

Slow Cooker Instructions (can easily be doubled or tripled):

  1. In a mixing bowl beat together the eggs, salt, pepper, milk, thyme, onion powder and garlic powder with a whisk.
  2. In your slow cooker, add the tater tots in a single layer. Then place the sausage patties on top of the tots. Pour the egg mixture over the top. Then sprinkle the cheese and bacon pieces on top.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 90 minutes to 2 hours. Eggs should be set. 
  4. Serve and enjoy.
