So when I was given the opportunity to go buy some Velveeta and share a recipe with you guys, of course I said yes!!! Seriously?! Meltable delicious cheese? Yes please! (Did you see my awesome shopping trip photos? Did you know Yoohoo comes in cans?! How did I not know that?!)
If you love breakfast, breakfast meats, and Velveeta cheese, then this Meat Lover’s Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole recipe is for you!
My favorite Velveeta recipe is actually a chili cheese dip, cuz what better way to use melted cheese than as a dip for chips?! But just because Velveeta is perfect for dips doesn’t mean it isn’t great in tons of other things too! So today I’m sharing a cheesy breakfast casserole recipe with you guys!
Bacon, Sausage, Cheese, and Potato Breakfast Casserole
Here’s what you need for this breakfast casserole:
- 3/4 lb of Velveeta cheese
- 8 breakfast sausages
- 8 slices of bacon
- 2 C frozen tater tots, thawed
- 1 yellow onion
- 12 eggs
- 1/3 C sour cream
NOTE: It’s pretty easy to make substitutions in this recipe! You can add some bell peppers or mushrooms or any other “saute-able” veggie in place of the meat, or in addition to it!
Start by preheating your oven to 325 degrees. Then chop your bacon into bite-sized pieces and fry it in a pan until it just starts to get crispy.
Once the bacon is done, remove it from the pan, but leave the grease. Chop the onion and add it to the pan, then crumble the breakfast sausages and add them to the pan as well. Saute until the onions are tender and just starting to turn brown.
Add the tater tots to the pan and continue cooking until the tater tots get a little bit crispy and just start to brown on the outsides. (They will soak up all the grease; don’t worry, they’ll be delicious!)
Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray, and then spread out the potatoes, sausage, and onion into the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the bacon pieces over the top.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sour cream until smooth.
Then slice up the Velveeta cheese into about 10 pieces.
Layer the cheese over the top of the casserole, and then pour the egg/sour cream mixture over the whole thing, making sure it settles down into all the nooks and crannies at the bottom!
Put the whole thing in the oven and cook for about 45 minutes. Check when you get near the end; you want the cheese to melt and just start to turn brown, but you don’t want it to burn!
When it’s done, pull it out of the oven, serve it up, and enjoy!
The casserole reheats well too, so don’t worry if you don’t finish it all in one sitting!
