  • Frozen tater tots (3-4 per muffin tin hole)
  • 10-12 large eggs
  • Bacon pieces (pre-cooked or cooked and crumbled)
  • Shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or your favorite blend)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Muffin Tin:
    • Spray a standard 12-cup muffin tin generously with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  3. Add Tater Tots:
    • Place 3-4 frozen tater tots into the bottom of each muffin tin cup.
  4. Scramble the Eggs:
    • In a large bowl or a 4-cup measuring cup, crack 10-12 eggs and whisk until well beaten.
    • Season the eggs with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Assemble the Bites:
    • Pour the scrambled eggs evenly over the tater tots in each muffin tin cup.
    • Sprinkle bacon pieces on top of the eggs.
    • Add a generous amount of shredded cheese over the bacon.
  6. Bake:
    • Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven.
    • Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the tops of the egg bites start to brown and the eggs are set.
    • Keep an eye on them to ensure the tops don’t get too brown, as this can indicate overcooked eggs.
  7. Serve:
    • Remove the egg bites from the oven and let them cool slightly before removing them from the muffin tin.
    • Serve warm with hot sauce, if desired.


  • Customization: Feel free to add other ingredients to the egg mixture such as chopped vegetables (bell peppers, onions, spinach), cooked sausage, or different cheeses.
  • Make-Ahead: These egg bites can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave for a quick breakfast.
  • Freezing: For longer storage, freeze the baked egg bites in an airtight container. Reheat in the microwave or oven before serving.


  • Eggs Sticking: Ensure the muffin tin is well-sprayed with cooking spray to prevent sticking. A silicone muffin tray can also help with easy removal.
  • Overcooked Eggs: Keep an eye on the oven and remove the egg bites as soon as the tops start to brown and the eggs are set. Overcooking can lead to dry, rubbery eggs.
  • Undercooked Tater Tots: If you prefer crispier tater tots, you can pre-bake them in the muffin tin for about 10 minutes before adding the eggs and other toppings.

Enjoy these delicious and easy Tater Tot Egg Bites, a perfect breakfast option for busy mornings or a tasty addition to any brunch!
