Tator Tot Hotdish

Pin It
Most people like tator tot hotdish, right?  And probably everyone has a recipe of their own.  Well here is mine... sorta.  I don't have a specific amount of veggies, cheese or tots that I use - I just dump in the veggies until it looks like enough and the same with the cheese.  Then I just spread a layer of tots across the top.  I like to pack them in there - have a good tot to meat ratio.  This is a great all-in-one dish that will get your kids to eat veggies!  Happy cooking everyone - and don't forget the ketchup!

Tator Tot Hotdish

1 1/2 to 2 pound package of hamburger
2 cans cream of celery soup*
Velveeta cheese, cubed - to taste**
frozen mixed veggies - about 2 cups
tator tots
ketchup (optional)

Brown hamburger in a large skillet and drain grease.  Add soup, cheese and veggies and cook until cheese has all melted.  Grease a 9x13 pan and pour in the hamburger mixture.  Top with a layer of tator tots and bake, uncovered, at 350 for about 35 to 40 minutes.  If you want - put some ketchup on your individual plates. 

*you can do variations on the soups if you want - 1 can cream of celery, 1 can cheddar cheese or you can also substitute cream of chicken or cream of mushroom

**I usually cut about a 2-3 inch thick chunk off the brick of cheese and cube it
