A couple of years ago, I searched for a brunch recipe that would feed a large family on a frosty, Christmas morning. I found this recipe (used by a couple who run a Bed-and-Breakfast), and my family now looks forward to this comfort food every Christmas, Easter, and some of those frosty, weekend mornings in between.
In a skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Spread in an ungreased 11"x7"x2" baking dish. Top with Tater Tots, sprinkle with cheese. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, milk, onion, pepper and garlic powder just until blended. Pour over cheese. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 2-25 minutes longer. Sprinkle with chives. Garnish with tomato. Yield: 6 servings.
Put into a freezer container and pop into the freezer for family gatherings or brunches ahead! Enjoy!
