Tater Tot Casserole With Veggies

Tater Tot Casserole With Veggies created by ChefLee

My DH was feeling nostalgic for foods of his youth. After an online search (and some tinkering) we came up with this winner! Ore-Ida Crispy Crowns work better than plain old Tots if you like this crispy.

    If freezing this casserole, is it best to freeze before or after baking it?

    My husband and I LOVE this recipe but I add 1T of Worcestershire Sauce and 1T of Catchup. You wouldn't think this would add so much but believe me, you notice it if you forget. Also, I use 1 can of green beans instead of frozen mix vegetables. It is not as watery. Love it!

    Very good and very easy. The only thing I changed was I used the mini tots.

    I want to print the recipe but I don’t see any print instructions?

    I have been eating this ever since I was a kid, and this is one of my favorite comfort casseroles. In fact, I just had the leftovers for lunch today! However, I have tweaked it for a more healthy recipe, and I make a BIG BATCH at one time cause I do love the stuff! I buy the big packs of ground turkey and the big bag of frozen organic mixed vegetables at Sam's Club. To use a whole pack of ground turkey (2.5 lbs), I mix in 2 cans of healthy request cream of mushroom soup, with the 1/2 cup of milk. I put a generous frozen mixed vegetable layer, and use reduced fat (2% milk) cheese I have on hand. Then top with the tots, and bake in my lasagna dish for one casserole with leftovers, or I divide it up into 2 smaller ones and freeze the other for a 'rainy day.' The water from the frozen vegetables and the frozen tots mixes with the soup when it bakes, so truthfully you could leave out the milk and it wouldn't be a problem. If I am baking this from one of my frozen pre-prepared stashed casseroles, I pull it out the night before and thaw it in the fridge. Then it bakes up in the oven when I get home from work, and quick dinner is ready!
