Make these flavorful Sausage Tot Brunch Bites for breakfast, brunch, brinner or even as an appetizer. They can be made ahead for a party, or whip up a smaller batch with leftover tater tots and sausage.
I cooked up extra tater tots one night just so I could make this recipe for breakfast the next day. Just cut the recipe in half, thirds or quarters depending on how many tots you have and use a smaller skillet.
Don't you just love planned leftover recipes?
About the Ingredients for Sausage Tot Brunch Bites
For the tater tots: I prefer the flat tater tot circles to the full cylinder tots for these. Depending on the brand they can be called tater rounds, crowns or circles.
For the sausage: Use whatever flavor you like, since the bulk of the flavor for these is coming from the sausage.
You can use a loose sausage like breakfast or Italian sausage like I did. Or opt for a harder precooked sausage like kielbasa, chorizo, linguica, etc. Crumble the loose sausage and dice the precooked varieties.
