    Ingredients
    • Frozen tater tots, enough to cover the bottom of a 10-inch cast iron skillet
    • 8 large eggs
    • 2 tablespoons whole milk
    • 1 large jalapeno, de-seeded and diced
    • 1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    Optional toppings
    • Salsa
    • Hot sauce
    • Chives
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and dump frozen tater tots into the bottom of a 10-inch cast iron skillet — enough to cover the bottom of it.

    2. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until tater tots have softened enough for you to mash them into an even layer.

    3. In the meantime, whisk together eggs, jalapeño, cheese, salt, and pepper.

    4. When the tater tots have warmed through, take a potato masher or the back of a spatula or wooden spoon to press the tater tots into an even layer.

    5. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet then place in the oven to bake another 25 minutes or until the eggs have cooked through and the edges are pulling away from the sides.

    6. Let cool for 10 minutes then slice and serve!

    Yassssss!!! I like be tater tots so freaking much! I wonder how this would work with the crispy crown version of tater tots. They’re more disc-like so I wonder if they would spread better when you mash them. Plus it would be a thinner crust. What do you think?

    • Julie says:

      Yes, definitely would be a thinner crust and it would work well! I would just monitor them closer since it’ll be a thinner crust so it might brown quicker :)
