Yummy Tater Tot Casserole
Who doesn’t love tater tots?? They remind me of my childhood, so I could eat them anytime and be perfectly content…probably a few pounds heavier, but content. My kids now devour them, so making tater tot casserole was a no brainer for me!
Did you know Americans consume approximately 70 million pounds of tater tots per year? Guess we’re not the only ones who love them.

Tips for Making Tater Tot Casserole
- I always look for ways to make dinner a little healthier, so I often use ground turkey instead of ground beef, and I throw in some frozen peas, broccoli or green beans. The kids roll their eyes about it, but they know I care 🙂
- Using cream of chicken or celery soup, whatever you have in your pantry, also works great in this recipe.
Meatless Tater tot Casserole
You could also make this tater tot casserole meatless, which would be delicious, just by omitting the meat.
