Tater Tot Casserole is one of our favorite comfort food dishes. But, sometimes we get a little burnt out on the same old dish week after week. An easy way to combat dinner boredom is to spice up our old standbys and add a new flavor twist like I did with this Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole. I mean bacon, cheese, potato, what's not to love about this dish? Give it a try and see if it doesn't have your family smacking their lips and begging for seconds!
Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Casserole
1 package tater tots
1/2 lb. ground beef
1 8 oz. bag shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 diced onion
1/4 cup bacon pieces
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 can milk
1 T. yellow mustard
2 T. Ketchup
2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
Preheat your oven to 350°, spray 8″x12″ baking pan.
First, you want to chop your onion into fine pieces and saute it until the smell makes you want to eat it straight out of the pan- I don't think there is a better food smell than caramelized onions!
Then you want to brown your ground beef until cooked throughout, drain.take those onions and mix them up with all your other ingredients in a large bowl until everything is well combined.
Now take the onions and ground beef and mix them up with all your other ingredients in a large bowl until everything is well combined.
Transfer mixture to your prepared baking pan and bake for 30-40 minutes until cheese is melting and bubbly.
Allow it to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
