Original Tater Tot Hotdish

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by HotDishQueen

Traditional Minnesotan soul food. Anyone can make this and everyone will love this. Promise! Hint: Try to make it your own by varying the veggies, using ground turkey or meatless crumble, or using different cream soups. This is the way my dad made it when I was little...

Ya sure....this is truly one of the best comfort foods here in Minnesota! I usually add 1/2 chopped onion while browning the meat. I have also used the Veg-All vegetables, and if I have shredded cheddar in the house, that goes on top of the tater tots the last 5-10 minutes. You really can't mess this recipe up! Oh, I do add 1/3 can of milk or water to the soup mix. Yum!
