Did you know today was National Tater Tot Dayโ“


If you are like me, at some point you have called a potato a "tater".ย 


They are great on the go foods not only enjoyed by kids, but us adults as we zoom from meeting to meeting during our work days.ย 


Did you know, they actually reduce potato waste, because they are made from left over French fries.๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ


So if you were looking for an excuse to stop by your favorite restaurant and grab some tater tots here it is friends, or if you prefer to make your own hereโ€™s a fun, easy tater tot casserole w/ sausage recipe to get you started:ย

1 lb (450 g) ground mild pork breakfast sausage

1 pkg (12 oz/340g) frozen chopped onions and bell peppers

6 eggs

1 cup (250 mL) half & half

8 oz (250 g) Monterrey jack cheese, coarsely grated (2 cups/500 mL), divided

Preheat the oven to 425ยฐF (220ยฐC)

Brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, about 5 minutes, breaking it up into crumbles. Add the frozen chopped vegetables and continue cooking over medium heat until sausage is no longer pink, and vegetables are tender, about 5 more minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, half & half, half of the grated cheese, salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl.

Place the sausage mixture in the bottom of the Stone Rectangular Baker, pour the egg mixture on top, and arrange the tater tots in a single layer.

Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until bubbly and browned.

Top with green onions, if using and serve with salsa, if youโ€™d like.

Your friendly Pampered Chef Cooking Tip:

You can substitute 1 large onion, chopped and 1 large red bell pepper, chopped for the frozen vegetables.

Try Pepper Jack cheese instead of Monterrey Jack cheese for some extra spice.

You can prep everything up the night before and bake it in the morning. Just follow the recipe through step 4, cover and refrigerate. Then bake as directed.


You can cut the recipe in half and bake in the Stone Square Baker.
