Egg Muffins with Tater Tots

I’ve always seen those egg muffins on pinterest but never got around to making them.
I have some tater tots left after my totchos recipes so decided to make something else with them.

Ore-Ida Tater tots

Preheat oven ( I did these in a toaster oven)
You will need a cupcake pan. Spray / coat with oil.
Take 3 tater tots per cup.
I microwave them first to thaw them out.
Put in 3 in each cup, and then mash down with a spoon for fork.
Seasons with salt & pepper ( you can also do this after you take them out of the microwave)

Eff Muffins

I put the tots into the toaster oven and cooked them for 5 minutes. Take them out of oven.

Next take eggs , season, and scramble together.

Pour the eggs into the cupcake tin, I would say at least halfway because they do fluff up.
( I forgot to take a photo because I was hungry and was in a hurry to cook them so I can eat & see how they turned out)

I had leftover sauteed green & red bell pepper & a little tomato left. So I cut them up a little smaller and added them into the eggs. Also If you want them cheesy I would add the cheese to the eggs before you pour it in. I was going to add cheese on top when they were halfway cooked but they fluffed up so much, which I wasn’t expecting.

Put them back in the oven until done maybe 5-10 minutes?

I took a knife and cut around the egg muffins and they slid right out.

I love these because you can add whatever meat or veggies you want. You could also make a variety of them at the same time if you have picky eaters.

Totchos with Ore-Ida Tater Tots #OreIdaTotchos #contest

Influenster sent me a great box recently and in it was a coupon to get a bag of Ore-Ida tater tots.I must say I haven’t had tater tots in a long time and forgot how yummy, convenient, & versatile they can be. On Influenster & Ore-Ida they mentioned totchos ( nachos but with tater tots as the ‘chips’). I;ve never eaten totchos or heard of them before so I gave it a go.
I ended up making breakfast totchos ( which I had as a brunch) & then Taco totchos which is great for lunch, dinner, or snack.

Taco Totochos

Ore-Ida Totchos

The night before I mixed together ground beef ( it was on sale for $1.29 at Target! Not something I normally eat often), kidney bean, black beans, 2 diced plum tomatoes, a little bit of green & red bell pepper, taco seasoning, a little water. I added this to lettuce , olives, & cheese for a salad but had some left overs.

I cooked tater tots in the oven until golden & crispy.
When done I added some lettuce on top so the tots wouldn’t get too soggy from the meat/bean mixture.
Heated up the meat/bean/veggie mix and put on top of the lettuce.
Added cheese, put back in oven until cheese is melted.
Topped with olives & avocado
