Bacon ‘Tater Breakfast Quiche

I don’t go home every year for the holidays because it requires thirty-five hours of road trippin’. Technically I don’t have to drive, but I need the cargo space for gifts, warm weather gear and let’s be honest, pop. I don’t go anywhere without a giant stash of pop. (Soda, if you must.)

The one thing I won’t have to worry about once I get there is food. If there’s one thing I can count on when my family gets together, it’s food. (I’m pretty sure that’s a universal family phenomenon. Oui?)

I’m planning on hanging out in my mom’s kitchen and whipping up this breakfast quiche to share with everyone this year. It’s a twist on a bacon and egg casserole with a fun surprise – tater tots!

Start with a deep dish pie shell and line it with cooked tater tots. I like them to be nice and crispy!  (In the photo below, I was checking to see about how many I was going to need to cook, so that’s why they look frozen.)

Don’t pack them in too tightly, as you want to leave room for all the rest of the ingredients.

Once you’ve got your cooked tater tots in the shell, sprinkle on chopped scallions, bacon, cheese and then pour the liquid ingredients over the top.
