"Pre-bake the tots if you want then crispy. The only change I made was to cook some chopped sweet onion and red bell pepper with sausage. Sometimes I add extra eggs to use them up (we have laying hens)."

"this turned out really good, and in answer to VONOEPEN's QUESTION, "YES YOU CAN MAKE IT THE NIGHT BEFORE" that's what I do now. and they turn out just like a strata does."

"I thought it was just ok. I've had better breakfast casseroles. I ended up using only 1 pound of sausage, and I doubled the egg mixture."

"I have now made this recipe for an 8 person breakfast so I too increased the eggs to 6 and milk to 3/4 cup. Everyone loved it, but I still would like to know if it can be prepared the night before like so many egg dishes. Eileen"

"I just made this for Christmas brunch. Everyone liked it. Since I used a 13" baking dish, I upped the eggs to 6, the milk to 3/4 cup, etc. Next time, I'm going to increase the heat to 375 to see if the tots will get crispier."
