How To Make Tater Tot Breakfast Pizza
Line the bottom of a greased 12-inch cast iron skillet with tater tot crowns (flat, round tater tots sometimes called potato crowns) and then line the sides of the pan.
Bake the tater tots for 15 minutes.
Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.
Whisk together the eggs and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Cook the eggs until just set (they will cook more in the oven).
Remove the tater tots from the oven and use a spatula to press down on top and sides of the crust to smash the tater tots a bit.
Top with one cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
Top with the scrambled eggs.
Next, sprinkle with cooked, crumbled sausage.
Add another layer of shredded cheddar cheese.
Finally top the tater tot breakfast pizza with cooked, crumbled bacon.
Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
