  • You can also cook off your bacon the night before and assemble the casserole the next morning then bake.
  • This recipe will make 12 big portions. You can cut the casserole into smaller portions to feed more.
  • You can easily half this recipe and use an 8×8 casserole dish, giving you 6 big portions.

    Are the eggs fluffy? Usually similar recipes have some milk or cream whisked into the eggs? The tator tots don’t get soggy overnight?

      Hi Tina! The eggs set up perfectly and the tots turn out great and add that bit of crunchy topping. You can cut this casserole into perfect squares. Merry Christmas!!!
