This comfort food casserole is breakfast food deluxe. You’ve got the normal suspects, like sausage, eggs, cheese, and potatoes. But wait, they aren’t just any old potatoes like hashbrowns or home fries. They’re potato tots! For heat-lovers, go with spicy sausage, or for something more family-friendly, a mild breakfast sausage. It’s true that this is pretty cheesy, rich, and filling, so if you want to lighten it up, serve with a side salad. Prep tip: To combine eggs quickly with a whisk, poke each yolk with the whisk so it mixes faster with the whites.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add sausage and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Whisk together eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl. Arrange tots in an even layer in a lightly greased 3-quart baking dish. Top with 1 cup cheese and the sausage mixture. Pour egg mixture evenly over tots and top with remaining 1 cup cheese.

  • Bake until set in the middle, 50 to 55 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Top with jalapeño and chives.
