Easy Sheet Pan Breakfast Stacks
I began making these breakfast stacks when I couldn’t get everyone to agree on what they wanted with their eggs. We dubbed them “stacks” because you can basically add what you like to them personalizing each one to taste. They make an oh-so-good budget friendly meal that’s requested by my family for supper as often as it is for breakfast or brunch. How to make Breakfast Stacks in the oven:
- Tater Tots – I used classic barrel shaped tater tots but you could use the round crispy crowns, too,
- Cheese – Shredded Colby-Jack cheese. You could use cheddar, pepper jack or any of your favorite flavors of cheese.
- Bacon – Cooked and crumbled classic bacon, You could also use breakfast sausage or diced ham.
- Eggs – Large or extra large eggs.
- Seasonings – Salt and black pepper.
- Garnish – Green onions, chives or parsley.
- Sour cream is optional.
