Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole

I remember the first time I tried Tater Tot Casserole.  I think I was probably 10 years old or so.  I thought it was the most disgusting meal my mom had ever made.  The name alone turned me away. So of course I have always had this image of gross Tater Tot casserole in my head.  Telling myself I will never ever eat this again.

 Now let’s jump forward 15 years, I saw this recipe on Campbell’s Kitchen and I thought I will give it one more try.  Because let’s face it, there were a lot of meals that I didn’t like when I was younger.  I have learned that I missed out on a lot of really good foods because I was to picky to give them a try.  So, I thought we are going to make this so I can once and for all say if I do or do not like Tater Tot Casserole.

Well the verdict, I did actually like it.  I don’t think I will make every week but I still liked and so did the husband.  So we will be adding this recipe into my book of approvals!

    • What is Tater tots? would I find it in New Zealand?

      • I’m not sure about New Zealand. They are located in the freezer section, Usually next to frozen hashbrowns and french fries. If you don’t have them, I bet hashbrowns would probably work as well.

  3. Sounds like a quite a delicious recipe especially for kids. What kid doesn’t like Tater Tot? Thanks for sharing. Visiting from Happiness is Homemade Link Up Party! Have a wonderful healthy day.

  7. Great recipe. My college roommate introduced me to this dish many, many years ago. My kids love it! We don’t include corn and onions, but I think I will try that. I feel like I will be building up the nutrition a bit if I add the veggies. Thanks for sharing this with our Let’s Get Real readers. Everyone should know about tater tot casserole.
