I am all for comfort food. Well, I mean, who isn’t? Tater Tot Casserole is one of those dishes that always brings me back to my childhood. My husband isn’t a huge fan, unfortunately, so I knew when I was attempting to make this, I would have to ‘wow’ him.
Enter…Tater Tot & Creamed Corn Casserole! Two of my favorite foods in the world, together. Doesn’t get much better than this. I know some of you might be thinking that I’m an odd duck who likes corn in her tater tot casserole, but just give it a chance. Trust me you won’t regret it!
1 – 1 1/2 lbs Ground Beef
1 pkg Frozen Tater Tots
2 cans Creamed Corn
2 c Shredded Mexican Cheese
Salt, Pepper & Garlic Powder to Taste
Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Brown your ground beef in a skillet and drain.
Cover the bottom of a 9×13 dish with the ground beef, and season to taste with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Cover the ground beef with both cans of creamed corn; sprinkle 1 cup of the shredded cheese on top.
Dump the entire bag of tater tots over top of the casserole. Make sure to cover as much of the creamed corn as possible.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until the tater tots are warmed. Sprinkle the rest of your shredded cheese on top and bake another 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
This is one of the most simple recipes I have in my stockpile, and it’s a new family favorite. My husband, and even my little guy, gobbled it down. The corn adds a bit of sweetness, while the Mexican cheese adds some unique flavor.
I cut this into 12 pieces, but both the husband and I ate 2 pieces. So, this breakdown is assuming you get 6 servings per casserole.
