Tater Tot Casserole

Here’s an easy kid-friendly recipe. Although my daughter doesn’t really care for it, just my son. But it’s really yummy! This is perfect for those nights where you want something easy to make. We use the Simple Truth brand of tater tots (found at Fred Meyer), and the Pacific brand of cream of mushroom soup (scroll to the bottom to see a picture). We don’t like mushrooms in this family, but we do like cream of mushroom soup mixed into different dishes. This one is pretty tasty.

Tater Tot Casserole


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 12 oz cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/2 lb cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 bag tater tots

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown the hamburger with the onion. Add the cream of mushroom soup, garlic powder, salt & pepper, and stir. (You can add 1 TB of flour to thicken or milk to make it creamier. We like it as is.) Then add half of the cheese and stir until melted. In an 8 x 11 dish, put a handful of tater tots. Spread them out to cover the bottom of the dish. Pour beef mixture on top of the tater tots and spread evenly. Cover the top of the mixture with another layer of tater tots so that it’s mostly covered. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. Add the remaining amount of cheese and bake for another 5 minutes, or just add the cheese when you are serving it. Let cool for about 5 minutes and serve. Us grown-ups add hot sauce on ours. 😉

cream of mushroom soup

This is the cream of mushroom soup I use. I have found it at most stores that carry organic food, however they do not carry it at Trader Joe’s. You can also purchase it through Amazon:

  1. The Whole Foods brand of organic tater tots is pretty good, too. I actually buy those from time to time and don’t feel too bad about it! :) I know there are recipes online for cream of mushroom soup if you ever want to attempt making the condensed version. I’ve made a cheddar cheese soup substitute that is really good…but haven’t yet tried mushroom. One of these days…

      Unfortunately there isn’t a Whole Foods in my area. :( Your cheddar cheese soup looks tasty! Is that what you use in your cheddar broccoli soup recipe? I haven’t been able to get my cheddar broccoli soup very cheddary (is that a word?). :)
