Vegetarian Tater Tot Hot Dish or as I like to call it “Careful, your Midwest is showing”

I blame Pinterest for this one, and the short days, and just feeling a little homesick after the move. Not that this dish would be found anywhere near Cambridge, MA, but it would be found in Wisconsin where I’m originally from. All I can think when I look at this is “careful, your midwest is showing.”  That being said it is everything a midwest dish should be; homey, salty, comforting, easy, cheesy, serves a crowd, and topped with tater tots. It is truly perfect for New Year’s Day because you can make it ahead of time, and just hang out drinking coffee while it bakes in the morning. You can start your New Years resolution eating at lunch.

This is a perfect dish for when you have overnight guests as it feeds a crowd with minimal effort, and will make most anyone happy if they are ok with tater tots for breakfast. And if they aren’t, well, you might want to decide if you need that kind of negativity in your life. If you really want to make it minimal effort in the morning just sauté your vegetables the night before and assemble the morning of.

Happy Midwestern Breakfast to you. I hope you’re holidays are merry and bright.

I haven’t been very good at posting for the last few weeks. I’m sorry. I am struggling with cooker’s block. With everything that has been going on (new baby and all) it has been a bit of a cooking rut for me. I’m starting to break out and have been focusing on making some new recipes. It is a process to get them where I am comfortable posting them for your consumption. It is my New Year’s resolution to cook something new once a week. Please hold me to it.

For now I have some amazing standby recipes for your New Year’s Brunch. Tweet me @happyfoodninja if you have a substitution question because you are in your pajamas and can’t be bothered to go to the store for some crazy ingredient.

Now, for brunch.
