Loved this variation of tater tot casserole, less prep time than my other one with mushroom soup, sour cream and cheese, etc. This is more “breakfasty”. (Not a word!) Also, I didn’t have the tater tots but I did have the potatoe patties, so I lined the whole bottom of the casserole dish and the sides. (I love a good crust!) I partially baked the patties in the oven first to crisp them up a bit, then poured the egg mixture over the whole thing. The cool thing is the potato crust is showing around the edges a little and makes it look like a quiche.
