These scrumptious mini bacon & egg tater tot casseroles are the perfect brunch bite for any occasion. Sure you can make a large casserole that has to be cut up and served, but why…when you can make petite individual casseroles that are perfectly portioned and look gorgeous on any brunch buffet. Serve each guest one or two with some fresh fruit and perhaps a croissant; so elegant served this way. I served this casserole as a larger version for an engagement brunch and it was just as good. This recipe is easy to put together and your party guests will be quite impressed with the presentation. Feel free to use any kind of cheese you prefer in this recipe, cheddar or Gruyere would be a great choice, I used pepper jack because that is what I had on hand.
