What’s in a Tater Tot Casserole??

What’s NOT to love about a Tater Tot Casserole?? In a tater tot casserole you typically have:

  • tater tots OR you can use crispy crowns they’re a flat crispier version of the tater tot
  • cream soup, depending on your recipe you can use just about ANY cream soup, and some recipes don’t EVEN use them, they make up a cream base instead
  • sour cream gives the soup a depth of flavor but you can just use milk to thin down the soup a little
  • typically they have meat in them of some sort, this can be ground beef, ground, chicken, ground turkey, or any leftover cooked meats such as beef, chicken, turkey, or pork
  • cheese, grated cheddar, or a mix of grated cheeses work well, but again if you’re making a certain flavor combo match the cheese to the flavor you’re seeking
  • spices, you CAN add spices to your casserole as desired, salt, pepper, lemon pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, a splash of Worcestershire sauce, a pinch of red pepper flakes

They are the quintessential hot dish and you can make them with any ingredients you have on hand. Or plan special versions to go with whatever event you’re planning.

Got leftovers?? THROW THEM IN!! The best thing about casseroles is that they’re super flexible. You can add whatever leftovers you happen to have on hand. A tip; drain them before adding to the casserole so it doesn’t water down your casserole.
