Make your next quiche crust with tater tots! This Tater Tot Quiche is a ridiculously easy and delicious way to up your breakfast/brunch game.
You heard it right: tater tot quiche. It’s as good as it sounds and also happens to be very easy. My mom has made quiche this way for as long as I can remember. Or maybe she just started doing it after my parents became obsessed with Napoleon Dynamite. Not totally sure. But I just googled tater tot quiche while holding my breath for fear that I would see that it’s already been done before and it has. And by Tasty nonetheless. Wah, wah, wah. Oh well, here’s my recipe anyway!

INGREDIENTS FOR TATER TOT QUICHE
- tater tots (enough to evenly line the bottom of your quiche pan)
- pre-cooked sausage links
- frozen spinach (measure frozen)
- large white onion (chopped)
- fresh dill (chopped)
- fresh parsley (chopped)
HOW TO MAKE TATER TOT QUICHE
To make tater tot quiche crust, simply line your pie dish with tater tots. You shouldn’t need to grease the dish, tater tots already have oil on them and I’ve never had issues with them sticking.
After you’ve lined the pan, bake for fifteen minutes at 425 degrees. Now is a good time to prepare your fillings— sauté veggies, cut sausage, chop herbs, etc.
As soon as fifteen minutes is up, get to mashing those tots! Use the back of a fork to press the tater tots into the bottom and edges of the pan to form an even layer for the crust.
Perfecto! From here, things go pretty much as any other quiche making experience. Whisk your eggs, add your mix-ins and bake till set.
Coming up with filling combos is fun! My mom usually does a broccoli cheddar combo which is very tasty but my husband can’t eat dairy so I came up with a cheese-less combo here. This recipe includes: frozen spinach, onion, sausage and fresh herbs! It was delicious. But there’s so many other things you could add in: sundried tomatoes, zucchini, feta, peppers, green chiles, broccoli, cheddar, jack, mozzarella, goat cheese, etc.
