4 cups frozen tater tots

1 pound breakfast sausage

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

Salt and black pepper to taste

Optional toppings: shredded cheddar cheese, chopped green onions, fried eggs


Cook the tater tots according to package directions until crispy and golden brown.

While the tater tots are baking, cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat until browned and crumbly. Drain excess grease, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the skillet with the sausage.

Sprinkle the flour over the sausage, stir to combine, and cook for 2 minutes.

Gradually whisk in the milk, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook until the gravy thickens, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

To assemble the breakfast bowls, place a portion of the crispy tater tots in each bowl. Pour the warm sausage gravy over the tater tots.

Add optional toppings such as shredded cheese, green onions, or a fried egg on top.
