Beefy Tater Tot Casserole

By Chef Tessa Turcotte-Novosedlik


  • 1 recipe Cheesy Tater Tots, cooked
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 lb Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 small Onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 2 cups Mushroom Bruschetta or 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups Tex Mex Cheese, grated
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • In a large sized frying pan over medium high heat, add the olive oil and chopped onion. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the minced garlic and continue cooking for an additional minute.
  • Once the garlic is fragrant, add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up using a wooden spoon or spatula.
  • When the beef is cooked, add the Worcestershire sauce and season with salt and pepper. Layer into the bottom of an 8x8” baking pan.
  • Continue by adding the creamy mushroom bruschetta mix atop the cooked beef. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the mushroom mixture then finish by layering the tater tots atop. Place in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Serve warm.
