Thank you for inviting me to the blog today to share Lacey Wilde’s Christmas Casserole recipe from Wilde Christmas. Wilde Christmas is part of the Candlewood Falls shared-world series, a unique world of connected stories by three different authors whose characters, business, and events appear in each other’s stories. How fun is that? We like to think of it as a literary soap opera. The Candlewood Falls books can be read in any order, as every book features a new couple who finds love. 


Lacey Wilde’s Christmas Casserole Recipe



1 Tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced 

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

8 eggs

12 oz evaporated milk (1 can)

2 cups shredded cheese (Lacey uses a cheddar and Monterey jack mix) 

1 - 28 oz package of frozen Tater Tots (Lacey prefers mini Tater Tots)


Preheat oven to 350º. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking oil and set aside.


Heat olive oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Sauté diced peppers, onion and salt and pepper to taste until onion are translucent (about 4-5 minutes).


In large bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in evaporated milk. Add cheese, Tater Tots, and sautéed vegetables. Mix well. 


Pour mixture into the baking dish and place in oven for 1 hour or until eggs are set. Serve hot.


Lacey’s Christmas Casserole can be enjoyed anytime of the year. You can even try adding other vegetables (broccoli works well) or add some diced ham. However, the red and green peppers makes this egg casserole a little more festive for the holidays. Enjoy!

Christmas is about to get Wilde!


All Lacey Wilde wants for Christmas is to open her long-awaited bed & breakfast. When her only guest is a sexy stranger who claims her adopted Military Working Dog is his, Lacey isn’t about to lose her fur baby—or her heart—to charming Marine veteran Dean Hunter.


But the K-9 controversy is the least of their troubles. Danger lurks in the shadows of Candlelight Inn, and someone will stop at nothing to steal Lacey’s heirloom ornaments. Can Dean protect the woman he’s fallen for against a deadly threat, or will this Christmas be their last?

What a fun mystery. Perfect for the holidays. May I say that I was also excited to find out there is such a thing as mini-tater tots?

Jacqueline - Thank you! Yes, the mini tater tots are great. I don't know if they are available everywhere, but I can find them in NJ.
