Check out the recipe below:


  • 2 cups worth of tater tots (frozen ones work!)
  • 2 tablespoons worth of diced ham (about 2 slices)
  • 1/4 cup of white cheddar queso
  • 2 Eggs, to make them green:
    • 2 cups of spinach
    • 1/4 cup of Italian parsley
    • 5 basil leaves
    • 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan
    • 3/4 cup of olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375℉.
  2. Prepare the spinach pesto by combining the spinach, parsley, basil leaves, parmesan, and olive oil into a blender and pulse until the ingredients are mixed together. (Alternatively, you can just use store-bought pesto sauce.)
  3. In a bowl, mix together one tablespoon of pesto with 1/2 cup of scrambled egg (two eggs).
  4. Place egg mixture into a small baking dish and set in the preheated oven for 6 minutes. (Alternatively, cook them in a pan on the stovetop, stiring as you cook them.)
  5. Once finished, remove eggs, fluff, and set aside.
  6. Prepare the tater tots according to package directions and then set aside on a paper-towel-lined plate to remove excess grease. (Air frying also works well without the grease if you have an air fryer.)
  7. Place queso into a microwave-safe bowl and cook on high for 20 seconds.
  8. Place tater tots into a tin or a small oven-safe baking dish. Cover them with the warm green eggs and about 1/2 of the ham, then place in the oven (still at 375℉) for about three minutes.
  9. Pull the tots out of the oven and pour queso over the entire plate, ensuring proper coverage. Garnish with remaining ham.
  10. Enjoy!
