Tater Tot Cups with Eggs and Cheese
"Today’s breakfast recipe is one of those foods that you cook once and you are set for a few days. We put tater tots, eggs, and cheese in muffin tins and bake them. Those tater top cups only require 7 ingredients and less than 30 minutes to make. If you are tight on time in the morning, make them the day before and you can easily reheat them in a microwave next morning. They were so darn hearty and delicious!"
NotesYou can add sausage, spinach, mushrooms in these tater tot cups. Just use a bigger size muffin pan.
