1 pack of tater tots
1 cup of chopped onions
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 cup of frozen broccoli cut into small pieces
½ cup of water
1 lb beef
2 cups of fresh milk
Shredded cheddar cheese
Salt for seasoning
Pepper for seasoning
a) Bake the tater tots according to the instructions given on the tater tot packet. Take it out from the oven once it is done and crispy. Then place it at the bottom of a 14 * 10 casserole dish. Now, you should season the tater tots with some pepper and salt according to your taste. Then keep it aside.
b) Now, take a medium sized sauté pan and put 1 tbsp of olive oil in it. Heat the oil. Now, add the onion and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Make sure the flame is medium. Then add the frozen broccoli that is cut into small pieces. Saute onion and broccoli together. Season with some salt and pepper. Now, add water and place the lid on the pan so that the broccoli and onion softens further. Remove the lid after 5 minutes and cook for a few more minutes over medium flame. Once all the water has been cooked off and gone, take out the onion and broccoli in a big sized bowl and set it aside.
c) Now, cook the beef in an oven or in a frying pan. Baking is a good option as you will be saved from a lot of hectic work and mess as in the case of frying. If you are baking the beef, then bake it at a temperature of 425 degree Fahrenheit until the beef gets crispy. Once the beef turns crispy, then drain all the beef on a tissue towel. Let it cool for sometime and then crumble the beef with your hands. Keep it aside.
d) Now, take a large sized bowl and pour the milk in it. Now crack about 12 eggs and whisk the eggs and milk thoroughly. Once it is well whisked, add the cheese to the contents and again whisk till everything blends together. Now, keep it aside.
e) Now, start off with the assembly of the casserole in which you have placed the tater tots at the bottom most position. First add the onion and broccoli mixture over the tater tots and spread it evenly over it. Now place the beef over the onion and broccoli mixture and spread it all over evenly. At last, pour the cheese and egg mixture over the beef. Spread it all over using a flat spatula. Make sure the cheese settles on top of the casserole.
f) Lastly, take a silver foil and cover the casserole properly. Tweak the edges of the foil so that the casserole is sealed from all ends. Now, put the casserole in the oven and bake at a temperature of 350 degrees of Fahrenheit for a time span of about half an hour. After 30 minutes, remove the foil from the casserole and then bake for another 10 minutes without any cover.
Your Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole is ready to be served. You can choose your own choice of meat. Instead of beef you can go in for lamb meat or chicken. You can choose your own veggies also. Broccoli can be replaced with cabbages, carrots and tomatoes. Whatever you choose, this is one dish that is never going to fail you. All in all, it will be a lip smacking affair.
