This tater tot casserole will make your morning complete. Tater tots, sausage, cheddar cheese (dairy free), bacon, eggs, and seasonings.
I wasn’t comfortable buying premade sausage at the grocery store. I just don’t like when I can’t tell EXACTLY what is in something. I bought ground pork & added seasonings myself. I added in ground pper, herbs de provence, and italian seasoning.
I also found this amazing bacon at Wegmans. I’m a big fan of nitrate free bacon – I feel like this brand goes the extra mile & I’m pretty sure this might be the only bacon I buy from now on.
The bacon is thicker but it looked and smelled so yummy. With the sausage and the bacon cooking, my kitchen smelled amazingggggg.
I mixed my eggs up & then added in almond milk.
Once my pork was browned I added it to the bottom of the 9×13″ pan.
Sprinkle on some daiya cheddar cheese (dairy free).
Dump in your egg/almond milk mixture (do your best to distribute it evenly).
