Bacon Crumble Egg Bake

I have mentioned before that John and I are not big breakfast people. At least breakfast in the morning people. A couple of times a month, we have breakfast for dinner. I threw together some of our favorite breakfast foods all in one for this bake. Tater tots, eggs, bacon and cheese. Yum! The peppers and onion add some great flavor without spicing it up too much so that Spencer could enjoy it too. 

Easy to reheat any leftovers also!

3/4 bag of tater tots
salt and pepper to taste
1 small onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1 lb. bacon, crumbled
8 large eggs
2 cups milk
3 cups colby jack cheese, shredded

Add frozen tater tots to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Spice with salt and pepper. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven until tater tots are golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside.

Lower oven temp to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, add eggs, milk and cheese. Mix well and set aside.

In a frying pan, fry bacon until crisp, then cool slightly and crumble. Discard all bacon grease except 1 TBLS. 

Saute diced onions and peppers in the bacon grease (using the same pan as you just fried the bacon in) until soft. Layer onion and pepper mixture on top of the cooled tater tots. Layer bacon crumbles next.

Pour the egg/cheese mixture over the bacon. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes.

Serve warm with biscuits or toast.
