12ozmini tater totsI used Ore-Ida brand, weighed frozen
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Chop the bacon into bite-sized pieces. Dice pepper and onion.
Add the bacon to a frying pan, and sauté over medium high heat for about 10 minutes.
The pieces will start to be crispy, but some will still be partially uncooked.
Add the diced pepper and onion to the pan (do not drain the bacon fat).
Cook the pepper and onion with the bacon pieces in the bacon fat for another 5 minutes.
Spray the bottom and sides of a 9x13 casserole dish with non-stick spray.
Add the cooked pepper, onion and bacon mixture to the bottom of the casserole dish, and spread it out on the bottom to cover the entire area.
Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, egg whites, yogurt, garlic powder, and kosher salt.
Whisk the mixture together to get rid of any clumps, and add 1 cup of the cheese (reserve 1/4 cup for the top) and the chopped scallions.
Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bacon, pepper and onion mixture.
Add the still-frozen tater tots to the top of the casserole, covering the entire surface area.
Add the remaining cheese on top.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the egg is set up.
To reheat from the fridge: microwave to warm through (the tater tots might still be crispy this way) and then use the air fryer, toaster or oven to get it crispy again if needed.
