Tater Tot Casserole is a delicious and easy-to-make dish that typically consists of ground beef, tater tots, cheese, and various seasonings. Here’s a simple recipe to prepare Tater Tot Casserole:
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 pound frozen tater tots
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter.
- In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until it’s browned and cooked through. Drain any excess grease.
- Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the skillet with the cooked beef. Sauté for about 2-3 minutes until the onion becomes translucent.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the cream of mushroom soup, milk, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.
- Add the soup mixture to the skillet with the beef and onions. Stir everything together until well combined. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to let the flavors meld.
- Pour the beef mixture into the greased baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
- Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the beef mixture, creating an even layer.
- Arrange the frozen tater tots in a single layer over the cheese, covering the entire surface.
- Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the tater tots are golden brown and crispy, and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Once done, remove the casserole from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
