There are no words for how tasty this dish is… and JUST SO EASY!

It will take you literally 5 minutes to toss into the slow cooker and you can use whatever you have on hand!!  All ingredients in this dish are optional, it’s a super way to use up whatever is in your fridge!

In today’s version, I used leftover chopped turkey from the freezer, chopped zucchini & red peppers and cream of mushroom soup.  My kids chowed down on this!  I rounded it out with a green salad and some crusty bread for a perfect meal!  You can easily use chicken, ground beef or even ham in this recipe!  The zucchini wasn’t even noticeable (to my kids)… yay, sneaky veggies!!  However, feel free to toss in whatever veggies your kids like or you have on hand..  frozen peas and carrots or broccoli would be great choices for this recipe!

Slow cookers are so amazing for those busy days but this recipe tops them all!  First it tastes awesome, second you can use what you have on hand and third it cooks in the slow cooker!!  What’s not to love!

I’ve love to hear what your version of Tater Tot Casserole is!

  1. this sounds so good, thanks so much for sharing

  2. I tried this today with Cheddar Cheese soup and it was GREAT!

  3. My family makes T.T.C but not in a slow cooker. We start by taking ground beef and depending on how big your casserole dish is, you want to just cover the bottom of the dish with the hambuger. Then you take a can of Cream of Whatever soup (and once again depending on the size of your dish) and pour it on the hamburger make sure to completely cover . Next you add shredded cheese, we use Colby jack and we layer it on top of the soup. My family loves cheese so we use a lot. And last but not least is the Tater Tots, You line em up or just make them fit and cover the cheese! Bake for 45 min at 350 degrees. Might take a little longer depending on how thick your hamburger layer is. And of course you can add veggies or whatever is your family favs ! Enjoy !

  4. I’m a few years late, but i just got my slow cooker and was looking for recipes. You have delicious ones, you know! But now my question….what are tater tots? I believe we don’t have that in my country. I’m Dutch you know and my english might not be really good, but i don’t have a clue what tater tots are! I appologize for any language mistakes as english isn’t my speaking language. Can you put the answer, if you have one, on the mail for me? Cos i came here through a recipe from fb where i saw your replie to something. It was also about a slowcooker recipe. And i think i’ll never find you back when i close my iPad. I’d love to know the answer. So if you can do that it would be great. Thanks in advance.
