Denver Omelette Breakfast Casserole

egg casserole

We whipped up this delicious breakfast casserole this morning with ingredients we had on hand and it was amazing! It is much tastier than other egg dishes with the pizazz of the tater tots!


Denver Omelette Breakfast Casserole


One  2# package of Tater Tots thawed

1/2 cup each chopped onion and green pepper (red would be pretty too if serving as Christmas breakfast.)

1 cup sliced mushrooms, fresh or canned

1 dozen eggs

1 cup milk

1 1/2 cups shredded cheese of choice (I like the Mexican blend or sharp cheddar)

salt and pepper to taste

Ham, bacon, or sausage optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 9 X 13 pan.  Spread Tater Tots in bottom of pan. Sprinkle with veggies. Whip together milk, eggs, salt and pepper and pour evenly over mixture in pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until everything but the very center is cooked. Top with cheese and bake additional 5-10 minutes. Cool and serve. You can add meat to casserole if you like or serve on the side. Next time I will prepare this the night before to save time in the morning.

    Does look yummy, but way to much work for breakfast. (though I think I’d like to give it a try for another time of the day) I’ve got my breakfast routine down pat. Short. Bowl of plain shredded wheat or cheerios or corn flakes with sliced banana and/or blueberries. No sugar. My hubby says I eat horse feed! ha. I guess he’s right.

    That’s okay, it works for me.

    Why have I never used tater tots in a breakfast casserole before? This looks really yummy!

    Marcia, these dishes were a yard sale find, and I do mean yard sale. This lady had piled all sorts of things in her front yard in the grass and didn’t price anything. I found 8 dessert plates and a sugar and creamer and offered her $5.00 for all of it. She was thrilled and so was I. My daughter was with me and we thought they would be perfect for having tea with the granddaughters when they are at our house. Here is a link to the pattern called Priscilla:
