Who doesn’t love an easy weeknight dinner? They are my go to. And this tater tot casserole is at the top of easy dinner recipes for family.
I used to eat this casserole at a friend’s house growing up and I loved it! So now that I’m all grown up and have a family of my own, it’s something I wanted to make for my family. However, I wanted to clean it up a bit so I substituted the condensed soup and beef for healthier, leaner options. The kids love this and it’s super easy to put together.

I know that casseroles are a big thing in the midwest. Although they are often called Hot Dish. I didn’t know that until recently when I was preparing for a get together and needed a dish to share with friends from Minnesota. These casseroles go back to budget minded farm wives who prepared a hot meal in one dish.
To make this Tatertot Casserole You’ll Need:
- small bowl
