Key to Success #2 – Make It Hammy and Cheesy

Hammy I am, indeed!

For those with a taste for ham like myself, it’s best to check the refrigerated section of the supermarket.

But if your options are limited and all you can find is canned diced ham – don’t stress because that will work just as well.

As far as cheese goes though?

Opting for a mozzarella blend rather than plain-jane mooz won’t disappoint!

Not feeling adventurous today?

Go ahead and use cheddar cheese instead; let your tastebuds do some exploring at another time.

With its combination of savory ham, melty cheese, and crunchy tater tots all in one easy dish, you won’t find yourself rushing to get breakfast on the table.
