Oh my goodness, you guys. Can we please talk tater tot casserole today? This dish takes me straight back to my childhood.
Did you grow up eating tater tot casserole? If you did, was it called casserole or hot dish at your house?
We’ve never used the term “hot dish” and I actually didn’t know anyone called it that until a couple of years ago!
Whatever you call it, can we agree that this is the ultimate comfort food?
I haven’t met a single person that doesn’t want to devour every last bite of this meal as soon as they smell it all warm out of the oven!
Growing up, we always had the standard ground beef version of this classic supper. Now that I’m older, I prefer it with tender, shredded rotisserie chicken!
Typically I have a batch of my All Purpose Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken on hand as well, sometimes I don’t want to go to the store and pick up a chicken after a busy day!
So, let me tell ya why I love the chicken version so much!
It’s still super easy to make. I don’t top my casserole with the tater tots, I mix them in with everything else for max flavor.
Again with the flavor of this. Condensed cheddar cheese soup is BEST here, you can sub cream of mushroom or chicken if you prefer. But, if you use the cheese soup you’ll really be head over heels. It also calls for sour cream and a packet of ranch seasoning mix. Over the top with creamy goodness.
It’s a major crowd pleaser. This is a big 9×13 inch casserole, which is enough to feed a crowd, or for us as a family of 4 to get two meals out of it. WIN.
