Tater Tot Casserole

My wife Shawn and I have a lot in common, especially our tastes in cuisine. We particularly enjoy comfort food type dishes, and we have quite a collection of recipes in this category. We tend to cook these dishes while we are camping (we have a 5th wheel RV trailer the size of Iceland and an equally massive redneck truck to tow it with), so we have dubbed this sort of food “trailer trash”. We love the heck out of it.

This recipe is fits squarely into the above category, and we couldn’t be happier about that. It’s apparently a classic, but it’s a new one on us. The version we initially came across was this one, but you can find unsurprisingly similar recipes here, here, and here. It includes all the cornerstones of blue collar cooking, namely meat, cheese, potatoes, and cream of chicken soup.


  1. 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. 2Sauté onion in butter and olive oil, add ground beef/turkey and cook until browned.
  3. 3Stir in cream of chicken soup, salt and pepper to taste, and spread evenly in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.
  4. 4Top with frozen Tater Tots and bake for 30 minutes or until Tater Tots are golden brown.
  5. 5Remove casserole from oven, top with cheese, and return to oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
