This cheesy, dreamy breakfast favorite is so quick to create, and can easily be prepared one day ahead.

The steps are simple:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Line bottom of baking dish with tater tots.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and pepper. Add sausage. Stir in half of bacon, half green onions, and half cheese. Pour mixture evenly over tater tots.

Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes, or until eggs are set. Sprinkle with remaining bacon, green onions, and cheese. Return dish to oven and cook for 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted.

Serve warm, slice into squares, and enjoy!
