I made this for breakfast this morning, cutting the recipe in half. I thought it was very good, although I'll probably tweak it a little. I can see that there is the potential for many variations (add sausage, sprinkle with herbs, sauces, etc). My husband really loved it--he took a bite and pronounced it "the perfect food." I won't say how many he ate--just that I had to make another bunch! UPDATE: Almost 1 1/2 years after I first made this, it remains a favorite with my DH. I cook his for 15 minutes for a more custardy yolk, and mine and DS's for 20 minutes for well-cooked yolks. Here's a tip: I find that a gravy ladle works better than a spoon for mashing the tater tots into the muffin tins.

Such a simple idea but great presentation! For some reason, I could not find tater tots, so I used potato patties & they worked very well. Delicious!

I made this this morning and I was in a hurry. I had already baked my tater tots last night. Short on time, I decided to raise the temp to 425 degrees. I used only a few of the egg yokes and all the whites. I whipped them up and poured them in and sprinkled the cheese on top. Because of the higher temp I added water to the empty muffin cups but filled only 1/4 of the cup. At the higher temp they baked in about 15 mins. At that higher temp the cheese became a nice golden crisp consistency. I didn't use much cheese. Just enough to top them off. I will make them again and add sautéed onion or red peppers and add a fresh spinach leaf or two in there. A few fresh clippings of chives would be a wonderful touch.

I followed the recipe as written other then I made eight. I also scrambled my eggs and added some pepper before putting them in. These were good but very greasy. I think they also could have used more seasoning.

My grandson liked these, but I thought they were a bit greasy, maybe they could be made with hash browns that are not as greasy

I just made these this morning. I really adore the idea of them. The taste was kind of bland, though. I'm thinking that if I can add a few bacon crumbles or sausage or something to it, that will solve our problem. They are definitely a perfect on-the-go meal, though. I could only fit 4 tots in each cup, and that was still too full. Next time, I'll cut it down to 3. I wonder if you could replace the tater tots with shredded hashbrowns?

I made these for Breakfast for Dinner Night. Only after they were all eaten, and we were discussing the meal, did I learn that no one is keen on over-easy eggs. Go figure...none left! These were easy to make which is always great for me!

These were pretty tasty. I defrosted my tator tots in the microwave to speed things up. I made exactly as directed, cooked for eggs for 15 minutes and they were perfect. The yolks were a little runny but not too runny. Thanks for posting!

I may have overcooked it, but after 20 minutes, the eggs were a little hard on the outside (sort of rubbery) but otherwise done perfectly. I wasn't sure I'd make it again, but my husband thought they were very good! I'll give it another shot.
