Simple Tater Tot Casserole

Simple Tater Tot Casserole

As with all recipes, you can switch out your meats so if you don’t like hamburger or you want a change you can try ground turkey or maybe some vegetarian alternative.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 pound hamburger
  • 8-16 ounces of shredded cheese (Mozeralla, Chedder, Colby Jack preference)
  • 1/2 large bag of Frozen Tater tots
  • 15 oz (approx) whole kernel corn (frozen or canned)
  • 15 oz (approx) green beans (frozen or canned)

Directions

  1. Boil hamburger until brown and then strain
  2. Place strained hamburger in bottom of 13×9 pan
  3. Evenly sprinkle the contents of the green beans and corn containers over top of the hamburger. (If using canned vegetables, strain any juices out)
  4. Then sprinkle the cheese to desired thickness over the vegetables. Once covered you place a layer of tater tots across the top of the cheese.
  5. Place in the oven for recommended time for the tater tots purchased to achieve optimum tater tot quality. (This is most often 15 minutes at 425-450 degrees.)
Recommendation: I prefer to make a solid layer almost like using them as if they are bricks in building a house to ensure everyone has a fair portion of the tater tots. The frozen vegetables will creates a different texture, as if bought in right from the garden to cook. So it helps change the meal right from the first bite.
