I love a good Tater Tot Casserole; hot warm comfort food in the middle of winter is just really hard to beat. Mix it up, cover tightly, bake, go play a game and dinner is mostly done. Using Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup makes it quick and easy to whip together, too. My mother always made some version of a Tater Tot casserole when I was growing up, and I thought they were universal. Was I wrong!
So many folks wrote to me to comment on my Crock Pot Tater Tot Casserole post–about how they’d never tried one–and I must confess, I was surprised. So my mission is to get everyone to try a version of a Tater Tot Casserole since there are many different recipes out there. And they’re so easily modified to your family’s particular tastes that there is sure to be one that appeals to you and your family, even a family with picky kids. One way to get your picky kids interested in eating something new is to include them in making it, and most Tater Tot Casserole recipes are easy enough to have kids help you put them together.
This Chicken Bacon Ranch Tater Tot Casserole version is a little more fun, a little different and a LOT of good eating. I used a can of Campbell’s Cream Mushroom Soup for the base, basic ranch ingredients, boneless chicken thighs, chopped bacon and Tater Tots for a dinner that cooked while we played a long game of cards. I love how I can keep all the ingredients in my various pantries and pull them out whenever I need a quick delicious meal. It’s just nice to have everything on hand.
