Homemade Tater Tot Hotdish Casserole with Beef and Cheese

6 eggs
2 packages of 10-oz pre-cooked sausage links (like Jimmy Dean)
1 cup milk
10 oz frozen Tater Tots
4 cups shredded cheese (we used a mix of cheddar and Colby/Jack)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Pam or other non-stick cooking sprays

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use cooking spray to grease a 9 x 13″ casserole dish. If using pre-cooked sausage, cut up sausage and cut into bite sized pieces. If using uncooked sausage, cook first and then cut into bite sized pieces. Spread sausage into bottom of casserole dish.

In a large bowl, beat together milk, eggs, salt and pepper. Cover the sausage in the dish with the egg mixture. Cover with 2 cups of the cheese. (You can prepare to this point and cover and put in the refrigerator to complete and serve the next morning if you like).

Spread 16 oz of Tater Tots on top of the cheese. It’s OK to put them on frozen right out of the package. Add the remainder of the cheese on top. Bake 50 minutes at 350 until eggs are set and Tater Tots are slightly browned.
