Brunch is always a great time to party and what a way to get the day going, whether you are out to a restaurant with friends sipping mimosas or a special occasion that you are hosting with friends and family.   I helped a client yesterday with a morning after wedding buffet brunch of “small bites” breakfast items but big on flavor.  I had told my client when I met with her during the planning stages of her party that I don’t do big pans of scrambled eggs or omelet “stations” or pancakes, it’s just not something that I provide but I can provide a buffet spread of small bite brunch items that everyone will enjoy and not get bored of the brunch standards that everyone tends to serve.   This casserole includes the ever popular comfort food of tater tots with cheese, eggs and breakfast sausage, all combined for a savory and tasty brunch dish that will please all your morning party guests.

Small bites for breakfast? Why not…so big on the Yum factor

Warm and comfortable, just the way things should be in the morning

Open wide here comes the tater tot train…lol
