Smoke Sausage and Tater Tot Casserole Recipe

A delicious and versatile ingredient I know can’t miss with when dinnertime preparation rolls around is, Hillshire Farm beef smoked sausage. Everyone in my family loves the tender, beefy, smoky flavor. Plus it’s cleaner and easier to work with than chicken, and it’s a can’t miss solution for an easy, fast and super tasty weeknight supper.

Tater tots are also a big hit in my household. Even when it’s only me and my husband eating. This is happening a lot more often these days as we (gratefully and gradually) work our way toward being empty-nesters for the first time in our married life. Don’t ask. It’s a long story and has been a looong time coming. LOL

So it just seemed to me like a no-brainer to combine beef smoked sausage and tater tots, and then top them with eggs (because everything is better when topped with eggs).

To add a bit more of a zip to my dish, I sauteed some green pepper and onion and added them into the mix. However, if you’re not a fan of those ingredients, they’re totally optional, and you can leave them out.

-Prepare tater tots according to package directions. Season with salt and pepper.

-Meanwhile in a large stock pot over medium/high heat, brown the sausage stirring occasionally. If using, stir in the green bell pepper and onion. Saute an additional 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
