Tater Tot Casserole Supreme

Tater Tot Casserole Supreme green beans corn

Tater Tot Casse­role Supreme is one of those quick-fix sup­pers that makes life sim­pler when you have 12,000 dif­fer­ent things going on all at once. It’s a hearty meal with veg­eta­bles, (green beans and corn) in a scrump­tious cream sauce topped with cheese and crispy pota­toes. Seri­ous­ly, what’s not to love? lol

Tru­ly though, if your house is like mine, every­one will love this. You’ll have time for a nice din­ner with your fam­i­ly and still be able to accom­plish all the things that still need to get done. 

In the days lead­ing up to Christ­mas, I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Most of what I’m doing is being set aside for Christ­mas Day, though. Believe it or not, my fam­i­ly has the audac­i­ty to want to eat dur­ing that time. lol That’s why I keep a list of quick-fix sup­pers in my bag of tricks and this recipe is one of the best.

Enjoy!

How to Make Tater Tot Casserole Supreme

green beans and corn with other ingredients

Begin by brown­ing and drain­ing your ground beef and minc­ing the onion. Return the ground beef right back into the *cast iron skil­let you browned it in, once it’s been drained. To the skil­let, add cream of chick­en soup, minced onion, gar­lic, Worces­ter­shire sauce, green beans and corn.

Stir all the ingre­di­ents togeth­er, right there in the skil­let. No need to dirty a bowl. Once every­thing is even­ly dis­trib­uted, pour the fill­ing into a 9x13 pan.

I know we talked about this back when we made Break­fast Casse­role, but it’s worth repeat­ing. Grate your own cheese, for the best fla­vor and the best melti­ness. Pre-grat­ed cheese is coat­ed to keep it from clump­ing. It affects the taste and it does­n’t melt as well. Pull out your *grater take the 1 or 2 min­utes need­ed to grate the cheese for this casse­role. You’ll thank me later.

Sprin­kle the cheese over the meat, green beans and corn fill­ing in an even lay­er. Then plop the tater tots down on top of the cheese. 

This is anoth­er area of dif­fer­ence between this recipe and the stan­dard ver­sions. Most will use a full 32 oz bag of Tater Tots on their casse­role. I pre­fer to leave space between them, so the heat gets to all sides even­ly and they are crispi­er. The tots are good, but they’re for tex­ture. I want to be able to taste all the oth­er deli­cious ingre­di­ents, too. I find that ½ of that bag is the best bal­ance for a deli­cious casserole.

Bake the Tater Tot Casse­role Supreme at 425° for 30 min­utes. The tater tots will be browned and crisp and the casse­role will be bub­bling around the edges. After 30 min­utes, remove the casse­role from the oven and allow it to rest on a cool­ing rack for ten min­utes or so. 

While it’s super hot, the casse­role will seem to be run­ny, but trust me. Let it rest for a few min­utes and it will thick­en and set up. You guys, this is so deli­cious! I’m get­ting hun­gry writ­ing about it. lol
