It was a comedy of errors; who could have ever imagined?

I was going to cook some perfectly good tater tots in a hot pan with some oil. I was excited. They were gonna be delicious!

But i stumbled and fell, and as I fell I knocked some spicy breakfast sausage into the pan along with an onion instead. Okay, I'll make the best of it, so I cut the onion up. As I turned around the dog tripped me and I lost my grip on a whole plate of cheddar cheese and pepper jack cheese. I thought...okay, this might be alright so I went to the fridge and grabbed a few eggs, thinking I'd make some scrambled eggs too. But I slid on the slippery floor and the eggs broke in the baking dish with the sausage, onion, cheese and tater tots. it was a disaster!

There was only one thing left on the counter and this was a red bell pepper, so I cautiously cut that up and dumped it into my disaster plate

I was bruised and disoriented (at least ego wise anyway). Screw it, I just shoved the whole thing in the oven to see what wold come out.

Wow...tater tots, eggs, cheese, sausage, onions and bell peppers actually come out pretty good in the oven...even if it IS a tragedy!

My wife made something very similar this morning. She mentioned while cooking that her recipe called for twice as much hash browns as she had and I offered up the tater tots in the freezer but she declined. She’s always messing with perfectly good recipes!!

It was tasty. Instead of peppers we add whatever green/red salsa floats our boat.

I love breakfast.

I almost "accidentally" knocked in some of my sour dough culture.

I think next time I'll trip over something else and knock a bit of that in there before putting it in the oven!!

MMMMmmmmMMMmmmmm!!

Straight up disclosure....

- one 9x9 baking dish
- tater tots lining the bottom (you can bake them in the oven for a few minutes before putting them in the dish if you like.
- 1lb of spicy breakfast sausage (you can add more if you like, I do)
- 1 med onion chopped and sauteed with the sausage when it's nearing done
- 1 massive cup of cheddar cheese
- 1 massive cup pepper jack cheese
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 tsp of cayenne pepper
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1/2 cup of half & half
- 1/4 cup of hot salsa (optional)

Bake the tater tots for a few minutes on a sheet pan if desired. Line the baking pan with the tater tots (wall to wall). Mix the cheese, egg, milk, half & half, pepper, spices and salsa in a bowl. Cook the sausage and onion in a skillet. Dump the sausage on the tater tots. Dump on the egg, cheese milk spice mixture on top. Sprinkle with more cheese.

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, or until cheese is melty.

When you remove from oven, get a sharp carving fork to STICK people who try to steal some before you serve it!!

Welcome to Minnesota, we call it a hot dish.

Sounds good, when am I coming over for dinner?

You...LIER.....how dare you appropriate or midwest culture and lie about it.

I expect 2 dishes at dinner, and lots of beer. Also, dont complain when I stay too late smoking a cigar on the deck, drinking your favorite beer and making advances on your wife. Its midwest reparations.

Careful, I'm inches away from going walkabout. I'll show up on your farm and work for food and shelter.

You have more to lose than I do in that arrangement.

You're good right up to the "advances on my wife". Then things get ugly (for YOU!).

You can eat, drink beer, phart or whatever, but hit on my bride and you'll find out what a mean, nasty, Wyoming cowboy looks like!

Well I meant it in good fun, no actual follow through intended. Some people would call it "charming" maybe the word compliment would be more appropriate than "advances".

That's a little better!

She can handle her own on that front.

Just so long as a fella remembers not to ever git between an old cowboy and his bride! Them's the rules! Not even a man's horse will survive such.

So now there's a horse involved, getting too complicated for me. I just want my hot dish and a cot.

Damn boss, your making this job harder than it has to be.

You're welcome any time, and the bean pot is always on.

Most often there's even a steak in the deal too (Lord knows, we've got enough of it!).

Cot might be out in one of the barns, but I'd almost rather sleep out there sometimes too. (usually do when I'm in trouble). Wood stove keeps things nice and toasty.
