Ingredients

Tator Tot Breakfast Frittata

  • cooking oil Note 1
  • 2 cups rocket leaves
  • 300 grams diced bacon
  • ¼ cup mozzarella grated, Note 6
  • 1 bunch shallots thinly slices, green onions if in the USA, Canada
  • 250 grams cherry tomatoes cut into halves
  • 1 tbs bbq sauce Note 2
  • 6 eggs free range
  • ½ cup cream
  • 500 grams tater tots Note 3, 4

Instructions

Tater Tot Breakfast Frittata

  • Preheat oven to 200°c /400°F, gas 6

  • Spray 26cm skillet with cooking oil (Note 5)
  • Layer your dry ingredients into your skillet starting with rocket, bacon, cheese, cherry tomatoes, shallots and bbq sauce
  • Very slightly whisk eggs add cream to eggs, and slightly whisk to combine (Note 6)
  • Pour egg mix into skillet in a clockwise fashion
  • Starting on the outside and working in, top frittata ingredients with tater tots.
  • Oven bake for 45 minutes (Note 6)
  • Garnish with shallots and cherry tomatoes

Notes

  • Note 1 a thin even layer of cooking spray oil will do the trick! 
  • Note 2 Don't worry about accurately measuring the sauce out, just squirt a bit over the ingredients and that will be perfect.
  • Note 3 just grab a 1kg bag of tator tots and you will end up using about ½ of them (save for another recipe!) 
  • Note 4 you can use salt/pepper on top but I find there are so many delicious flavours, it isn't necessary
  • Note 5 my skillet is 26 cm. I recommend that size or smaller. If using a bigger dish, add another 2 eggs (so 8 in total) to the recipe, but keep remaining ingredients the same. You will need more tator tots as well though if your dish is bigger. We want a thick slice of frittata not a thin omelette height one 
  • Note 6 think about this step as whisking to smooth and combine but not actual whisk anything 
  • Note 7 if your skillet or dish is very wide or deep put the cheese layer on last before the tator tots so they stick
  • Note 8 the cooking is the most important step of this recipe. It will take 45 minutes even if your bag of tator tots say they will cook in 15 minutes. They won't due to the fact that are sitting on a wet egg mix not a flat baking tray. Ensure no wobble in centre of frittata to ensure it is cooked before removing from oven.
