Ingredients
  • 1 pound (about 3 cups) frozen Tater Tots
  • 10 ounces fully cooked (not dried) chorizo sausage, diced
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Directions
  • Bake the Tater Tots as the label directs and set aside. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F.

  • Meanwhile, cook the chorizo in a medium ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and wipe out the skillet.

  • Whisk the eggs with the half-and-half, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Stir in the Tater Tots, cheese and scallions.

  • Melt the butter in the skillet and add the egg mixture, spreading it out with a rubber spatula. Scatter the chorizo over the top; transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the eggs are set, about 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes, then slide onto a cutting board and cut into bite-size pieces.
