Many years ago, when we lived in Kentucky, my mom made me transcribe some of my grandmother’s recipes from various scraps of paper to actual recipe cards. One of those recipes was this simple tater tot casserole recipe.

It was a favorite of my mom’s growing up, and my grandmother loved to make it too. Let’s be honest about why grandma liked to make it: 1) it was easy, with only four ingredients, and 2) in was inexpensive.

After going back through through my family’s recipe cards, I found a lot of easy casseroles . . . and I knew this tater tot casserole was going to be a big hit around here and I would have to make it first.

I remember sampling it when I was little too, but it’s been about 30 years! This easy tater tot casserole is just as good as I remember it.

Crispy, cheesy, and delicious. Your whole family is going to be begging for this recipe – adults and kids alike!

Pour the tater tots out evenly across the top of your casserole. I’m typically not a tater tot snob but the local store brand doesn’t taste as good as Ore-Ida. I’m going to leave that up to you though!

Stick in the oven and bake for 45 minutes covered with aluminum foil. Remove the cover and bake an additional 15 minutes. CHECK your tater tot casserole – depending on the oven you may need an additional 10 or so minutes.

I’ve had a few people try this recipe and it’s taken between an hour and one hour 10 minutes depending on the individual oven!
