In a 9×13-inch casserole, add the tater tots.
Salt and pepper to taste. Bake in a preheated 400°F oven until tater tots are golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside.
Lower oven temp to 350°F.
In a mixing bowl, add 8 eggs, 2 cups milk, and 3 cups shredded cheese. Mix well and set aside.
In a frying pan, fry bacon until crisp, then crumble. Discard all bacon grease except 1 tablespoon for sautéing. Add the onion and peppers in the same fry pan as the bacon, saute the diced onion and peppers until soft.
Layer the onions and peppers on top of the pre cooked tater tots. Layer the bacon crumbles on top of the onions and peppers. Pour the egg and cheese mixture over the bacon layer. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a pre heated 350°F oven for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
