Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1⁄2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • 1 package (32 oz.) tater tots

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Butter or spray a 9”x13” casserole dish; set aside.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, break up sausage and cook until browned and internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove sausage from pan but leave about drippings; add peppers and onions. Cook 3-4 minutes until softened and fragrant. Reduce heat to medium; add cream cheese, milk, salt and pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until cream cheese melts; stir in sausage. Spread mixture into an even layer in prepared pan. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheddar cheese.
  • In a non-stick skillet over medium heat melt butter and add eggs. Cook, scrambling until eggs are just done. Spread eggs evenly over cheese and top with remaining cheese.
  • Place an even layer of tater tots over the top of the casserole. Bake 25-30 minutes until tater tots are crisp. Allow to stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.
