Tater tot casserole (or tater tot hot dish) is a classic comfort food staple. Perfect for chilly nights or a great family dinner, this bacon cheeseburger version gets its heartiness from ground beef. Topped with Tater Tots, filled with seasonings and condiments, and finished with a warm, gooey cheese, this casserole is a can’t-miss hit.

Ingredients

6
slices bacon
1 1/2
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1
large onion, chopped (1 cup)
1/2
cup ketchup
2
tablespoons yellow mustard
2
tablespoons dill pickle relish
1/2
teaspoon Montreal steak grill seasoning
1/4
teaspoon pepper
6
oz American cheese loaf, shredded (1 1/2 cups)
4
cups frozen potato nuggets (from 32-oz bag)

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 2-quart casserole with cooking spray. In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp; drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; set aside.
  • 2 In same skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in ketchup, mustard, pickle relish, grill seasoning, pepper and 3/4 cup of the cheese. Spoon into casserole. Top with potato nuggets.
