Today I've partnered up with Tillamook to bring you this deliiiiiicious recipe for brunch totchos. Tillamook is a farmer-owned, farmer-led dairy co-op based in Tillamook, Oregon. After 109 years, Tillamook makes its cheddar in the same way – with simple ingredients, patience, and old-fashioned farmer values. Tillamook is guided by the belief that everyone deserves real food that makes them feel good every day, which is why Tillamook Cheddar is Dairy Done Right – crafted with time for the boldest flavor and in the most natural way possible.
I recently made this for out-of-town guests for breakfast and it was just too good not to share. It's relatively quick to throw together as long as you have everything prepped ahead of time.
You will need:
1 bag of frozen tater tots (bake until crispy)
1/2 a block of Tillamook Cheddar (shredded)
1 lb. of cooked bacon
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 cup of chopped green onions
1/4 cup of sliced jalapeños
2-3 fried eggs (I fried mine in the remaining bacon grease.)
A dash or two of paprika.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Once your tater tots are crispy and golden brown, remove from the oven. Heat your oven to 500 degrees. Sprinkle your Tillamook cheese and bacon on top and place them back into the oven for just a minute or two to get the cheese melting. Remove from the oven. Add your fried eggs first. Then sprinkle your green onions and jalapeños on top. Lastly, add the avocado slices a few at a time all over the tots.
My two not so secret weapons are Tillamook cheese and making sure the tots are exxxxxtra crispy.
Now that Tillamook cheese is here in the southeast you can use their store locator on their website to find their cheese near you!
