After a big coupon-clipping group shopping trip, one of my friends sent me home with a massive bag of frozen tater tots to help keep my groceries cool in the car until I got home. I typically don't eat tater tots unless I've got all my nieces and nephews with me, so I had to get creative to use these up. This tater tot casserole hit the spot. I will be making this a lot in the coming days. Not because I have tater tot cooling bag, but because it's that good! You've got to try this delicious, comforting, easy-to-make meal!


You can use any pound of ground meat for this. I used mostly ground turkey and a bit of chorizo.

I took a recipe and changed everything we didn't like and added other stuff so it doesn't resemble the original recipe much, but my husband and teenage son love it...

When my DD was small I used to make a tater tot casserole. All I remember for sure is that it had browned ground beef and Worcestershire Sauce. She recently asked for it but I can't for the life of me remember the recipe.

Tater Tot Casserole

I love this recipe. My sister-in-law used to make it a long time ago but I never asked her how to make it. Thanks for posting it. (05/19/2005)

Tater Tot Casserole

I make this recipe a lot. I use Cream of Celery soup instead because we don't like mushrooms (even small ones). It really gives it a different flavor - one we like. I also add shredded cheddar cheese before I layer the tator tots.

My husband also loved this dish his mom made. The newer version from Weight Watchers is really good. Brown hamburger in skillet; drain all fat; put back in skillet, adding 1 chopped onion; 1 tablespoon garlic; browning. Then add 1 can low fat chicken soup; 1 can sliced green beans (drained);4 ounces low fat Velveeta Cheese, melt all together, put in casserole dish adding tater tots on top, . Bake 350 degrees F for 45 minutes This is really good. (02/28/2006)

I top my casserole with shredded cheese, after mixing in a can of cheddar broccoli and a can of cream of mushroom. It is a great quick meal, especially when you're feeding 6+ adults! (03/22/2007)

Tater Tot Casserole

I have a recipe for a hamburger casserole that I was reminded of when you said Worcestershire sauce. I haven't made it in many years. It was good to have around when feeding a family of five. No salt and pepper as sauce takes care of that.

  • 1 lb of hamburger
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup uncooked rice
  • 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
Simmer hamburger, onion, celery, approx. 10 minutes. Drain. Add 2 cans of soup, rice and sauces into a 2 quart greased casserole dish. Cover with a lid or foil. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.

If I remember correctly, it is salty tasting.

We have also started adding a can of green beans to ours. This is how our local grocer's deli does it. (03/23/2007)

Tater Tot Casserole

I just brown hamburger with a little onion and beef bouillon. Then I layer it on the bottom of the pan. Next put the tater tots on. I then add one can of milk to a can of cream of mushroom soup, pour that over the top of the tater tots. I then top it of with a little sharp cheese. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. I like simple!

I make it like this: Brown 1 lb. ground beef with 1 small onion, fine diced. Drain. Place in bottom of casserole dish. Mix 2 cans cream of potato soup with 1/2 cup milk and 1 tsp. Worcestershire. Spread over meat. Cover that with 16 oz. bag frozen peas and carrots. Cover peas and carrots with 16 oz. frozen tater tots. I then sprinkle with shredded Velveeta cheese or American. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes until taters are cooked, and cheese is melted. :D (03/27/2007)
