Breakfast Totchos Recipe #oreidatotchos

Breakfast “Ore-Ida Totchos”

January 14, 2016 Sarah Coggins

Tater Tots for breakfast? Yes!

Breakfast Totchos Recipe #oreidatotchos

Admittedly, I’ve almost always had tater tots as a standalone side dish and served with either a hamburger or a hot dog. When I received a coupon for a free bag of Ore-Ida® Tater Tots in the Influenster Jingle Vox Box, I thought that might be exactly what I’d do. Wait for one of our warmer winter days, fire up the grill, and warm up some tots as a side.

Then I learned about Ore-Ida®’s new idea: Totchos. Think of the tots in place of chips when you’re having nachos and all the possible recipe combinations. The recipe that caught my eye was a breakfast one with bacon and sausage. Truthfully, bacon and sausage fall into a category with ham for me – the right time and the right amount. I also wanted to try to make a recipe with items already in my pantry & fridge.

Ore-Ida Tater Tots

My twist on the recipe is simple and barely even needs written instructions. Basically just combine your cooked Tater Tots with scrambled eggs, crumbled bacon, and some shredded cheddar. Then serve. That simple.

It makes an easy breakfast or, in our case, dinner. I whipped up a few drop biscuits and peeled fresh mandarins for sides. After dinner I had nothing but clean plates and a clean serving dish. A sign of a good dinner.
