This is now going to go in my weekend brunch rotation. I really love including the tater tots, but you can sub hash browns if you wish.
If you prefer to make ahead, you can make this the night before. Otherwise, it only takes about 15 minutes of prep work the day of.

Easy Holiday Bacon Egg and Cheese Casserole
6 slices of bacon
1 diced onion
2 cups of tater tots (frozen)
1 cup shredded cheese
How to make Easy Holiday Bacon Egg and Cheese Casserole:
Cook bacon in skillet or microwave (depending on preference.) Reserve grease for the onions.
Once bacon is cooled, crumble into small pieces using a ziploc bag.
Sauté onion in bacon oil (using same pan) or butter until translucent
In a large bowl combine (stirred) eggs, tater tots, and cheese. Add in crumbled bacon and onions.
Pour mixture into greased baking pans. I used two.
Bake at 350 F (177 C) for 35-45 minutes or until cooked thoroughly.
You can make it the night before. Be sure to cover before placing in the fridge. However, I prefer to make this quickly in the morning. It’s quite simple and the smell of bacon cooking is always a smell that gets my kids out of bed!
