Mom's Tater Tot Meatloaf

Total Time
1hr 5mins
Prep 5 mins
Cook 1 hr

This is one of my family's favourite meals, as it was for me when I was a child. Potatoes cook right on top of the meat, so it's easy for Mom, and the kids love the way it looks.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon HP steak sauce
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) packet onion soup mix
  • 34 cup oatmeal
  • 1 kg tater tots


  1. Mix the meat with all ingredients except the Tots.
  2. Pat into a Pam sprayed 9x13 pan.
  3. Place the Tater Tots in rows over the meatloaf.
  4. Bake at 350 for one hour.

This is a great tatortot casserole recipe. I've haven't made this in quite some time and so when I ran across it while scouring your recipes I knew it was time. My recipe uses just plain hamburg as a base and so this one is a nice change as it adds more flavor and definitely something that I want to make again. I also added a can of greenbeans on top of the meat b/f adding the tots, just to give the family the veggie they need. Corn or any other veggie would work equally as well. Glad I made this as a tribute for Cook-a-Thon for ChefDee!!

Spiced up the meatloaf a little more, but otherwise great idea especially for little ones.

This was very easy to make. However I think next time I will spice it up just a little but I can see that it is a great recipe for children as is. Into my 'keeper' file it goes. :)
