Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  • Spread the special sauce: Pour the special sauce over the beef and pickles, spreading it out evenly.
  • Add tater tots: Arrange the tater tots in a single layer on top of the sauce. You can sprinkle a little extra shredded cheddar cheese on top of the tater tots if you like.

  • Bake: Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the tater tots are golden brown and crispy.
  • Garnish: Remove the casserole from the oven and sprinkle sesame seeds on top for that classic Big Mac look.
  • Serve: Let the casserole cool for a few minutes. Before serving, top it with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and more shredded cheddar cheese.
