Best Tater-Tot Casserole

Best Tater-Tot Casserole

Serves 6


  • 1 lb ground beef, salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tb Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 32 oz or 4 cups of frozen tater tots
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Cook the beef in a non-stick skillet with about a tablespoon of olive oil. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
  3. Chop ½ of the medium onion and add to the beef when the beef is about 80% cooked
  4. While the beef and onion are cooking, mix the Worcestershire sauce, sour cream, and soup in a medium-sized bowl
  5. When the beef and onion are cooked, add them to the sauce mixture in the bowl and mix well
  6. Place the sauce, meat, and onion mixture in a glass baking dish. (I like using my 9”x 9” square glass pan but a rectangular glass pan or a one-time-use square foil pan will work too.)
  7. Top the mixture with frozen tater tots and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  8. When the tater tots are crisp, add the cheese to the top and return to the oven until the cheese is melted (about 5-7 minutes).
  9. Serve and, if you desire, add your favorite spicy topping and devour!
