Opie's Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Sobiedaddies

I created this recipe over time in homage to the original from Opie's BBQ in Spicewood, TX. Some things to note: Ore-Ida tater tots have lots of salt and seasoning; typically off-brand do not. I would probably add over a tsp for off-brand tots.

Simple to throw together! Here's my personalized take on the recipe. I added sliced sauted mushrooms, chopped and sauted red peppers, and diced caramelized onions. For the soup I used cream of mushroom and added some seasoning salt for flavor and spice. This casserole is easy to adjust to suit your own tastes. Thanks for posting!
