Frozen tater tots are one of my favorite meal shortcuts and you can do so much with them beyond just cooking them according to the package. This delicious casserole uses them as a base but adds a great easy beef mixture and three different cheeses to take the casserole to another level!
The star of this casserole is really the cheese. I like to use multiple cheeses that have different flavors and properties that work well together in the casserole. Cheddar melts perfectly. Gruyere has some creaminess to it. Parmesan gives the casserole some saltiness and a crispy topping. (Did I mention that melted cheese is the best thing in the whole world? You gotta try this one!)
Because the tater tots are frozen, this will need to bake for a total of 50 minutes or so to cook all the way through. Keep an eye on it as it bakes and rotate pan halfway through if needed to ensure even cooking.
