I’m sharing #SausageFamily in my life as part of a Johnsonville sponsored series for Socialstars™
Breakfast Tater Tot Casserole is super easy to throw together for a weekend breakfast. It’s full of cheese, sausage, and eggs making it a one dish meal. The tater tots are placed on top of everything else so that they brown and crisp up nicely without any precooking. In addition to cheese mixed into the casserole, there’s also plenty of gooey, melted cheese on top. This is sure to be a breakfast the whole family will want to dig into.
What makes this Breakfast Tater Tot Casserole so easy to prepare is Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage. It comes in both patties which I love to use for these Breakfast Sliders and links, which I have sliced up and used for this casserole.
Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage makes breakfast so easy. Ready in only 30 seconds, these sausage links have that bold Johnsonville flavor that you love. Whether your morning schedule is super hectic and you serve them with some scrambled eggs for a breakfast that is ready in just a few minutes, or you use them to whip up a breakfast casserole on a more leisurely morning, you’ll love the flavor of these Johnsonville sausages.
I know I do. 🙂
Not only is this casserole quick and easy to throw together, it feeds a crowd and leftovers reheat well.

Perfect have been making for last 5 years for Christmas
Easy and yummy!
Very good everyone loved it.
This turned out quite well! I had used extra large eggs so was afraid they would be runny (as several people said), but they were cooked perfectly after 45 minutes. I couldn’t find the sausage links but used fully cooked sausage patties cut in 4, and they were fine. I also used a bit more Monterey Jack than the recipe called for. Definitely will be making this one again!
I changed this just a little. We had a big Easter ham so I used 2C cubed instead of the sausages. I also had Ore Ida crispy crowns in the freezer. It turned out wonder and everyone loved it, hardly any left!!
I made this but with cooked ground breakfast sausage. I added more cheese and used Penzeys spices (Justice, Seasoned Salt, Fox Point, Toasted Onion) in addition to pepper and salt. It is so good! Most breakfast casseroles I looked up didn’t have the tater tots on top so I was delighted to find this one. Thank you!
I also make mine with ground breakfast sausage. I don’t add the shredded cheese to the egg mixture, but I put a layer of queso cheese over the egg and sausage and then add the tater tots on top. It’s absolutely delicious and adds a little kick to the casserole. I sometimes add green chiles and jalapeños to the sausage/egg layer if I want it more tex mex.
