Growing up, on Christmas morning, my family would always have “Aunt Michelle’s Casserole.” To be completely honest, I never made it so I’m not even sure what’s in it… I assume day-old bread, a ton of eggs and dairy baked to perfection. Of course, I haven’t been able to indulge in this nostalgic breakfast in quite a few years. This year, I wanted to come up with a vegan breakfast casserole that is just as fun and tasty!

Who doesn’t love tater tots?? I used to eat them all the time as a snack or side, but never for breakfast. But why not?! The potato base to this recipe supports the tofu scramble and cheesy goodness (dairy-free, of course)!!
