A Denver omelet turned inside out into a savory breakfast bowl. Crispy tater tots accompany creamy scrambled eggs, fresh green pepper and onion and of course lots of ham and Swiss cheese. 


  • 16 ounces of frozen tater tots (half a bag)
  • 3 large slices of deli ham, chopped (about 1/2 cup chopped)
  • 1/2 cup green pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup white onion diced
  • 6 large eggs, whisked
  • 4 ounces of shredded Swiss cheese (or cheese of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon of butter (divided)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your even to the temperature per your bag of frozen tater tots. Cook half of the bag (16 ounces) according to the package directions. 
  2. 10 minutes before your tater tots are finished cooking start the rest of the recipe begin to cook the rest of the ingredients. 
  3. In a medium skillet heat half of the oil or butter on medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add your diced green peppers, onions and ham. Saute for 2-3 minutes until the peppers and onions are softened but still crisp. Remove the onions, peppers, and ham and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the remaining oil and heat on medium heat. Add your whisked eggs to the pan and cook the eggs until scrambled how you like. 
  5. Once the tater tots are finished cooking begin to assemble your Denver tot bowls. Add 1/3 of the tater tots, 1/3 of the pepper ham mixture and 1/3 of the scrambled eggs to each bowl. Salt and pepper to taste and  top with Swiss cheese and enjoy!
