Tater Tot Casserole wasn’t something my Mom ever made while I was growing up.  It wasn’t until my sister-in-law, Sue, brought it over one time when I had surgery that I had ever eaten it.  It was SO GOOD!

Holy, Cow, why had I never tasted this before?

Now, my kids request it, and it seems like every time I make it I have to call her to make sure that I am “doing it right.” Not that I don’t enjoy talking to her any chance I get, she’s always a riot, I just think, maybe she thinks I am losing my mind.

I mean it’s not an elaborate dish, it’s only got a few ingredients, why can’t I remember them all, or what order they go in in the pan?

I decided it was high time to blog it!

I know that so many people make Tater Tot Casserole, and I am sure we all make it differently.

I would love to know how you make yours?

  1. I’ve made tater tot casserole for years. One of my hubby’s favorite meals. I use fresh or frozen green beans cooked al dente & substitute cauliflower for some of the tater tots to make it a little more carb friendly. I also double the recipe & cook my hamburger with onions & green peppers & use reduced fat/heart healthy cream of mushroom soup & cream of celery soup. The shallots sound wonderful though.
