Rave reviews from the kids and staff at the school I work at. I mixed together the hamburger with diced pepperoni, used only onion for veggies, and a mixture of cheddar and mozza cheese. My first time making a tater tot casserole. They polished off the the whole thing and wanted more.

We thought this recipe was pretty good. Easy and quick. After I browned the meat and onions (no green peppers) I added the pizza sauce, pepperoni, canned mushrooms and black olives. I added the mixture to the baking dish, then I sprinkled the mozzarella cheese then the tater tots. Everyone liked it and I will make again.

This was a easy recipe to put together. I used sausage, onion, green peppers, mushrooms, black olives and candian bacon. The recipe didn't say what to do with the pizza sauce so I put it over the toppings, added the cheese than the tater tots. We didn't have any left over and my guys thought it was a neat idea. Thanks for the recipe.
