The street youth love this egg casserole. I keep getting requests for the recipe, so here goes!
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
About 8 to 10 slices of old bread (toast if fresh)
1 cup cheese
1 cup milk (possibly 1/2 cups more)
1 1/2 cups of frozen prepared tater tots
Optional: 1.5 cups of any combination of browned sausage, chopped wieners, and/or sautéed onions or peppers
Grease a 6 X 10 (or 8 X 8) baking dish. Place two layers of old bread (about 8 slices) on the bottom. (6 hot dog buns work, too). Crack 10 eggs in a bowl. Add a cup of grated cheese and a cup of milk. Crunchy (dry) bread works fine. Add 1/2 cup additional milk. Mix together to break up all the eggs.
If you desire, prepare 1 cup of any combination of flavoring such as browned sausage, cut up wieners, sautéed onions, sautéed peppers. Sprinkle this directly on the bread.
Preheat the oven to 325.
Pour the egg mixture onto the bread. Press the bread into the liquid. Let it sit 5 minutes to soak up the egg mixture. It will look a bit like french toast before you cook it.
Take about 1 1/2 cups of tater tots. Line them checkerboard style across the top in rows. It makes it pretty.
Bake for 30 minutes. It will be puffed up and firm. Serve with salsa or ketch.
