  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Place foil baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups; spray foil baking cups with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Place 6 frozen mini Tater Tots™ in each muffin cup; bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven; cool 5 minutes. Using 2 paper towels, gently press potatoes into cups to create a base for the muffins. Evenly sprinkle cheese over potatoes in each muffin cup.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix milk, eggs and salt; set aside.
  • 4
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until browned. Cool 2 minutes. Spoon evenly over Tater Tots™ in each muffin cup.
  • 5
    Pour egg mixture evenly over sausage mixture.
  • 6
    Top each cup with 6 more Tater Tots™; gently press into mixture. Bake 32 to 34 minutes or until mixture is set and Tater Tots™ are browned. Cool 15 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • For easy removal, try to press Tater Tots™ potatoes directly onto egg and sausage mixture instead of letting them fall to the edges. Also, be sure to use the “mini” Tots™!
  • Be sure to allow cups to cool 15 minutes before removing from pan. They need time to set up so they can hold their shape.
