  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Place 6 frozen mini Tater Tots™ in each muffin cup; bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven; cool 5 minutes. Using 2 paper towels, press Tater Tots™ into cups to create a base for the hot dish and to absorb excess oil.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix milk and egg. Stir in cheese; set aside.
  • 4
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 6 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until browned; drain. Remove from skillet; set aside. Wipe out skillet. Add mushrooms and steak seasoning to dry skillet; cook over medium-high heat 6 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until browned. Remove from heat; cool 2 minutes.
  • 5
    Add beef and mushrooms to cheese mixture. Pour evenly over potatoes in each muffin cup.
  • 6
    Top each cup with 6 more Tater Tots™. Place muffin tin on large rimmed cookie sheet. Bake 32 to 34 minutes or until mixture is set and Tater Tots™ are browned. Cool 15 minutes; run knife around each muffin cup, and lift out.
  • 7
    In small bowl, mix ketchup and Sriracha sauce; serve with hot dish cups.

Expert Tips

  • For easy removal, try to press Tater Tots™ directly onto beef mixture instead of letting them fall to the edges. Also, be sure to use the “mini” nuggets!
  • To round out your Midwestern masterpiece, serve with green beans or a green salad.
  • Be sure to allow cups to cool 15 minutes before removing from pan. They need time to set up so they can hold their shape.
