- Cheddar Cheese
- Garlic Powder
- Tater Tots

Optional - Salsa, fresh chives, red bell pepper, sour cream, onion, diced tomatoes, hot sauce, fresh spinach, pork sausage, and/or turkey sausage.
Cheese - We used cheddar cheese but you can switch it out with pepper jack cheese or sharp cheddar cheese for more flavor. Go wild and try some Colby Jack Cheese.
Tater tots - we use frozen tater tots straight from the freezer for this recipe.
Large Skillet - to cook the bacon.
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter.
9x13 casserole baking dish – This casserole fills a 9x13 casserole dish.
Heat resistant potholders - A couple of years ago we had a fire scare when we didn't realize we had turned a burner on and a cloth potholder caught fire. Thankfully we walked by the kitchen and saw the smoke and were able to get it out ourselves. Since then we have only used these heat-resistant potholders.
