Tater Tot Casserole is one other recipe that I shared again in 2015 and since have modified a little bit bit to style even higher! I used to be impressed to replace this recipe from Anthony.  He begged me for about 2 weeks for Tater Tot Casserole, and eventually, I caved.  It’s not that making it’s troublesome, really it’s in all probability one of many best recipes I make, however I simply wasn’t feeling a casserole.  I attempted to get him to need Beef Stroganoff (identical base served with egg noodles) as a substitute, however nope… Anthony wished the tots.

Tater Tot Casserole is a good meal for sneaking in greens too!  Finely chop them in a meals processor, and prepare dinner with meat.  Zucchini, bell peppers and eggplant mix in very well with out including an excessive amount of vegetabliness.

The unique recipe referred to as for topping it with cheese.  I’ve discovered that topping it with cheese takes away from the crunchiness of the tater tots.  As a substitute, now I add a little bit cheese into the bottom earlier than I prime it with the tots.  Making this recipe is tremendous simple too – simply brown the bottom beef, stir in a pair components, pour it right into a pan, prime with tots and bake!

Dinner will likely be prepared in about 45 minutes.  Or have dinner in half the time and make the bottom the evening (or perhaps a couple days) earlier than, and proper earlier than baking prime with the tots.

Tater Tot Casserole makes an superior freezer meal too.  To show right into a freezer meal, put together base in keeping with recipe instructions.  Pour right into a 9×13 casserole dish and let cool fully.  Disposable foil pans are good for this.  As soon as cooled, prime with tater tots, and canopy fully with plastic wrap.  Then, cowl in foil and label with instructions.  To prepare dinner from frozen, take away plastic wrap, substitute foil add bake in a 425 diploma oven coated for 15 minutes.  Take away foil and prepare dinner a further 20 minutes or till meat is bubbly and tots are crispy.
