Tator Tot Casserole


This Tater Tot casserole recipe tastes just like a bacon cheeseburger. That would be because it has all the wonderful ingredients that would go on a bacon cheeseburger, all in one dish. Plus, it has the Mr. Saucy Seal of Approval.

I make a lot of foods that Mr. Saucy loves, foods like this casserole, that I never post. I’m constantly trying new things to please his meat and potatoes cravings, but many of them just don’t pass the Saucy-likes-this-too taste test. Well, this casserole did both; best of all, I didn’t have to completely reinvent this casserole recipe . It didn’t have any “cream of” soups or prepackaged flavor packets involved. Win!

There were some changes I made to it, though. Instead of using a premixed spice blend, I seasoned it with spices that most kitchens would have on hand. I used sharp cheddar instead of the American cheese the recipe called for, and I used more ground beef. Other than that, this recipe is one I spotted on the Betty Crocker website.

I think it’s important to at least partially thaw the tater tots before adding them to the casserole, because they get crisper. If you don’t mind a soggier tot, just plonk them on there frozen.

So, if you’ve been craving a bacon cheeseburger , toss this casserole together. No buns needed; comfort food at its best.
