Cheesy Potato Egg Bake

I whipped up this cozy egg bake with potato crowns for an easy “brinner.” Use add-ins you like – sweet peppers, onions, broccoli, carrots. The possibilities are endless. —Amy Lents, Grand Forks, North Dakota

    The tater tots on top make this really family-friendly. LIke it mentioned in the note, it's very easy to add some extra vegetables. I added some broccoli and red bell pepper that we had in the fridge and that was great!
