Tater Tot Casserole

Hi everyone! Today’s recipe for Tater Tot Casserole is super easy but so yummy! Seriously, my Husband and I could have eaten this for a week! I mean, who does’t love Tater Tots?! This is one of those comfort foods that just hits the spot.

Tater Tot Casserole

I did a little something extra and added a little sour cream. I also made it a tad bit healthier by using ground turkey instead of beef. I pretty much always do that though. Since using ground turkey, the package usually comes 1.3 lbs. We both agreed that there needed to be more when using a 9×13 dish. My measurements are going to be approximate of course because that’s how I roll. 🙂

2 lb ground turkey (or beef)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 can water
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups shredded cheese ( I used a mixture of pepper jack and colby jack)
1 2 lb bag Ore Ida Tater Tots

Preheat oven to 425 degrees (as stated on the back of the tater tot package)

In a large skillet, brown the ground turkey and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add the soup, 1/2 can of water and sour cream to the meat. Stir until mixed well.

Using a 9×13 baking dish, pour in the meat and soup mixture. Layer half of the cheese on top. Add the tater tots to the top and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tots start getting brown and crispy. Add the remaining cheese and continue to bake for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

    I make this allot but I also add a can of Cheddar Cheese Soup & a can of drained corn.. Once my hamburger is well browned drained & rinsed I dump it on the bottom of my baking dish.. Then I mix up the cream of mushroom soup, cheddar cheese soup, sour cream, & corn & spread that over the top of the hamburger, add my tater tots on top & bake @350 for an hr to an hr & 15mins depending on how crispy I want my tater tots.. This dish is so very yummy my family LOVES it & is always asking me to make it & the left overs are even better cause all the flavors go through!!
