  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 eggs (whisked)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 2 cups Colby jack cheese (shredded)
  • 2 pounds frozen tater tots


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and prepare a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Whisk together milk, eggs, and seasoning and set aside.

  3. Cook and crumble ground sausage then drain fat and place in the bottom of your prepared casserole dish.

  4. Top cooked ground sausage with shredded cheese.

  5. Next, add tater tots to the top of the casserole then pour in egg wash evenly.

  6. Bake for 50-55 minutes until cooked through. You know it's cooked when you can put a toothpick in and it comes out clean. Optional: top with diced green onions.

Recipe Notes

Tools I used for this recipe:

Casserole dish: For this recipe, I used a 3 quart 9 x 13 casserole dish. I find these to be a must-have in any home. The one pictures I was gifted but I will be linking another favorite.

Whisk: Can you believe this whisk has over 1,000 reviews on Amazon! It's crazy and such a simple item. If you need one I would pick this one up.

Skillet: A skillet with a lid would be wonderful for this recipe. Cooking fatty meats like sausage can cause a lot of grease to a lid is great to keep that all inside and not splattered all over the kitchen. This is another one with great reviews and I personally love.
