**For the Tater Tots:**
– 1 bag (32 oz) frozen tater tots

– Spread the tater tots in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake until crispy, following the package instructions. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
2. **Prepare the Sausage Gravy:**
– In a large skillet, cook the breakfast sausage over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through, breaking it up into crumbles with a spatula.

– Once the tater tots are baked and crispy, transfer them to a large serving dish or individual bowls.
– Pour the sausage gravy over the top of the tater tots.
– Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the gravy.
– Garnish with sliced green onions.

4. **Serve:**
– Serve immediately while the tater tots are hot and the cheese is melted.
