We absolutely love easy dinner recipes like this that you can whip up in about 10 minutes. I am a mom of 3 boys that are in sports and dinners like this are a life saver. The activities they are involved with seem to be never ending and it’s so helpful to have a handful of tried and true recipes like this on hand for those busy months. This sure beats eating out and no one will ever know how quick this is to prepare.

This easy tater tot casserole recipe is also great because it only takes just a handful of ingredients that most of us already have on hand. You can also add in other veggies like corn, peas, etc…or even leave them out. Just adapt with whatever your family prefers. We like this with green beans.

Tips To Make This Tater Tot Casserole

  • You will need a 9×13 baking pan or a large rectangle casserole dish.
  • I prefer to use freshly grated cheese and think it makes the cheese melt a lot better. Grating cheese really doesn’t take that long and I think it’s worth it.
  • You can replace the ground beef with ground turkey and it will be just fine. We have done this many times.
  • The grated cheese can be added before the tater tots or on top of the tater tots. We have made this both ways. The best thing about this recipe is you can tweek it in lots of ways for what you prefer.

This has been a go to for my family for years. We love how easy, tasty and filling it is. My little girls even want seconds when we make it!5 stars

This has been a family favorite for years.  We substitute golden mushroom for mushroom.

A family favorite.  I always double recipe and make two. I bake one for dinner and other goes in my freezer.  Just put cheese on top and put it frozen in oven.  
Also,  I use canned white chicken ( in water).  I always have ingredients in pantry for those ‍♀️ Days!!


Sarah, I’ve made this recipe into a breakfast casserole simply by swapping out a 1 lb chub of breakfast sausage for the hamburger and a thawed bag of diced bell peppers for the green beans. My family loved it!

Great and easy…I used “crispy crowns” and that added a nice crunch5 stars

Probably one of the easiest and tastiest casseroles ever! I added a little Worcestershire sauce to meat mixture and topped it with French fried onions at the end of baking and it was wonderful5 stars

I tried this and it was really good. I was wondering if you have the Nutrition facts for this dish.

Great looking Love5 stars

Thank you so much jill i loved this recipe, my friend barbara send me this and texted ‘found something that can made your day’ and it really did. I want this type of dishes in my breakfast.5 stars

That is pretty cool recipe, What if we spread some melted dark chocolate on it as a topping.5 stars

Nice Post5 stars

Green beans do not belong in tater tot casserole.

Thanks for sharing such a nice article. i really appreciate your efforts

Those casserole’s are really awesome. Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe.

Easy, nummy casserole!  I put in refrigerator until wanting to bake for evening meal.   Hubbie decided he was hungry while I was gone and did not realize I was going to bake this.  He heated in the microwave and it tasted just fine!  The taters just weren’t crispy.   With the hot muggy weather this worked out just fine.  

Looks delicious! Thanks for the recipe. It seems very easy. Surely giving it a try.

So yummy thank you
