Who doesn’t love tater tots?? They remind us of childhood, so we could basically eat them anytime and be perfectly content…probably a few pounds heavier, but content. Our kids now devour them, so making tater tot casserole was a no brainer for me!

The kids would eat this or our Crockpot Pizza Casserole [1] anytime! And on game day, we always make Tater Tot Nachos [2]!
