Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray. Place the bacon in a large pan over medium high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the bacon is browned and crispy, 4-5 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan. Drain off excess grease, leaving about 2 teaspoons of grease in the pan.

Toss gently to combine. Reserve the remaining bacon for later use. Spread the tater tot mixture into the baking pan. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper until thoroughly combined. Pour the egg mixture over the tater tot mixture.
