This is a slight variation on the Tater Tot casserole recipe my mom made when I was growing up. Most of it’s the same, but I’m a picky eater so I tweaked it a bit… and added cheese. Because who doesn’t love cheese!
Tater Tot Casserole Recipe
- 1- 1 1/2 pounds of meat (I used ground turkey, but beef works too!)
- Seasonings of choice (I used salt, pepper, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper and a dash of paprika)
- 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 2 pound bag of tater tots
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Start by browning your meat, then drain the grease. Then, add seasonings! I decided to add the paprika at the last minute.
Then mix in the cream of mushroom soup.
Once it’s all mixed together, spread into a casserole dish (mine was a 9 X 13). I added the cheese on top of the mixture!
Add the tater tots! You can do this as neatly or as crazy as you want. Just make a single layer!
Then bake at 400 degrees for 40-45 minutes– until it’s bubbly and the tater tots are brown!
Then serve up and enjoy!
This is a simple, easy, delicious meal that is picky eater (me) approved! Have you ever made Tater Tot Casserole? What recipe did you use?
