Tater Tot Casserole - a simple, quick and tasty dish with a tater tot base, creamy and cheese center, and a fried onion topping!

Have you ever gotten so excited about a recipe?! Well, today I’m SO excited to share this Tater Tot Casserole recipe that we made last week. I’m so ecstatic to share it because it was LOVED by the whole family and ended up tasting so delicious. In fact, my husband and sisters claimed it the best casserole they had ever tried. How’s that for quickly becoming a family favorite?!

With the holidays quickly approaching, I know it’s always fun to have great recipes on hand, and this Tater Tot Casserole will be perfect for those get togethers. This particular dish has a tater tot base and a cheesy, creamy center and a fried onions top. All these layers together make an amazing (and simple!) potato casserole that everyone loves.


French's Fried Onions


We have used French’s® Crispy Fried Onions for many of our classic holiday dishes, but love that they added the perfect amount of flavor and crunch to this casserole. In fact, as I made this recipe I realized that they would be great additions to any casserole, potatoes or salads. They add so much to a recipe and are perfect for all your holiday dishes!

What’s so great about today’s recipe is that it is simple, quick and so tasty. We started with a layer of frozen crispy tater tots and topped that off with a mixture of sour cream, cheese and cream of mushroom and chicken soup.

Easy Tater Tot Casserole

We topped that off with French’s® Crispy Fried Onions and baked it for 45-50 minutes. The result is a new favorite casserole recipe that took minutes to prep and was so delicious.

I’m not joking when I say that the whole family loved these potatoes. We had to divvy up the leftovers because everyone wanted to take some home to their families to try out. 😉

    Is it 1 can EACH of Cream of Chicken plus 1 can Cream of Mushroom
    Or is it
    1 can of either soup ?

    Thanks for clarifying

      Kristyn Merkley

      They have cans of cream of chicken & mushroom combined. I don’t like cream of mushroom too much, so I like to use this combined one. If you can’t find it, you could use half of each. Hope that helps 🙂 ENJOY!
