The best way to change up the dinner routine at our house is to have breakfast for dinner! Because of sports, we typically don’t get to sit down on the weekends for a big, yummy breakfast. Instead about once every 3 weeks or so, I’ll cook up some of our favorite breakfast meals at dinner time.
This Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole is so very easy to make and is super filling! There are not a lot of recipes I make that we have enough for leftovers, but this is one of them. I can cut up some fresh fruit to go along with it and we have a great meal.
I tend to gravitate towards using breakfast sausage for the meat but you can also use bacon or even chopped ham as a substitute. They are all delicious options!
