Prosciutto Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole is the easiest, tastiest, accidental breakfast I’ve ever made. The title might say it all, but this scrumptious dish is made with eggs, tater tots, prosciutto, avocado, and cheddar cheese. Just you wait, it’s even more irresistible than it sounds…and SO easy to make!
Prosciutto Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole
A few years ago, this breakfast casserole as a very happy accident.
We had Thanksgiving weekend guests and wanted to whip up a breakfast that would accommodate everyone with very little work.
I collected a handful of ingredients from my fridge, many of which I don’t usually have on hand such as frozen tater tots and Prosciutto di Parma.
I almost always have eggs, green onions, and avocado…pretty much standard fare for our weekend breakfasts.
Then, the magic happened when I started throwing things together like I often do, and this amazing tater tot breakfast casserole came out of it.
I didn’t even know that it was a “thing” out there on the interwebs.
Makes sense though…what could ever go wrong with prosciutto, tater tots, avocado, eggs, and cheddar?
It was a hit…we knocked this one right outta the park!
Guys…this is the breakfast bake to make any weekend of the year! Where has this been all my life?!
How to make Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole:
- bake the tater tots really nice and crispy
- prep other ingredients while tots bake
- combine all ingredients into one casserole dish
- bake 12-15 minutes…and devour!
It’s mostly hands-free, ready in 30, gluten free, and requires the most basic cooking skills, such as heating an oven and carefully shoving stuff in and out of the oven a few times. That’s really it!
