Baked Egg Tater Tot Muffins

Cooking Time: 40 min


  • 24 frozen tater tots
  • ½ c shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ tomato, diced
  • ¾ c fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 3 thin slices turkey or ham deli meat, cut into smaller pieces
  • 6 Safest Choice™ pasteurized egg(s)
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh chives, finely diced for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray or grease 6 cups in a regular sized muffin pan. Place 4 tater tots into each cup and bake about 20 minutes or until crispy.
  2. Remove muffin pan from oven and sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the tater tots. Then add diced tomatoes, spinach leaves, and deli meat pieces evenly into each muffin cup. Gently press down ingredients if needed to make room for the egg.
  3. Crack an egg over each muffin cup; be careful of the egg spilling over. Season with salt and pepper and bake about 20 minutes, or until the eggs have set. Do not over-bake the eggs. Remove from oven and let muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Garnish with chives and serve immediately.
